What Maybach plans for the future? To take on Rolls-Royce for the title of Best—or at least Most Expensive—Car in the World, and sell about 1000 examples a year to the superrich.
"Although it took a while to sink in, everyone involved knows now that it’s not the brand that’s at fault," claims one Maybach source. "It’s the current product in general and the design in particular. The Exelero show car did more for us than all the tweaks to the 57/62 series (...) > Full story

With 175 units per year by 2010, Maybach is behind Rolls-Royce sales (3000 cars by then) and Bentley (10,000 cars in three years’ time). To help the brand from failure, Maybach will add to 57/62 basic line-up a convertible and an SUV model.

The Maybach brand name epitomises the high-end luxury automotive class. It is synonymous with highly advanced automotive technology, timelessly stylish elegance and precision craftsmanship.
As early as the 1920s and 30s, Maybach – together with Mercedes-Benz – was part of the elite of the automotive sector, not just in Germany but at global level, too.

Maybach, the luxury brand with an illustrious past, re-established just four years ago, is adding a fourth variant to its line-up in the shape of the newly developed 62 S model. The "S" stands for "Special" and draws attention to the fact that the Maybach engineers at the Sindelfingen-based Manufaktur workshops have incorporated a wealth of meticulously developed, special features specified by their highly discerning customers into the new 62 S model. The result is a new dimension in travelling comfort, especially for the passengers in the generously proportioned rear compartment of the new high-end luxury saloon. Not to mention a prodigious power output thanks to the enhanced potency of the twelve-cylinder engine developing 450 kW/612 hp, making the new 62 S model the world’s most powerful chauffeur-driven saloon in series production.
The Hollywood star, Samuel L. Jackson, will soon be stepping out in style in his new Maybach 57 S. Jackson, and his wife, La Tanya, visited the Maybach Centre of Excellence in Stuttgart and took the opportunity to order the dynamic limousine with a number of personalised options, including special Mercedes-Benz Designo paint, refrigerator, silver tumblers, champagne glasses and folding tables.
Jackson is an avid Mercedes-Benz fan, and already owns a new S-Class and a classic 280 SE (...) > Full story

As a reaction as the news that Rolls Royce is going to create a slaller vehicle, Maybach’s chairman, Dieter Zetsche, said: "Obviously there’s some space between the price range of the current Maybach and the top Mercedes. We’re looking at that and if there’s a chance of filling it we have to decide if we want to. And also if it is with the Mercedes brand or the Maybach brand. However, we feel under no pressure to make that decision (...)
