The 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is the Epitome of Ridiculous Luxury
Since it’s revival as a Mercedes-Benz sub-brand in 2015, Maybach has been selling pimped-up S-Class model. Come 2020 and Mercedes-Maybach is switching to the latest-generation S-Class, the W223. Adopting the new design and features of the brand-new S-Class, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class takes things to a whole new level in terms of luxury and comfort. Seven inches longer than the regular S-Class, the Mercedes-Maybach model basically redefined chauffeured-driven luxury and offers an alternative to Rolls-Royce and Bentley limousines.
2021 Aznom Palladium
Who thought the hard-working Ram 1500 pickup could ever challenge the likes of Rolls-Royce or Bentley? Obviously, this is not stock a Ram 1500 and while the jury is still out on the way this thing looks, it’ll catch your attention with its peculiar name first and foremost.
Meet the Aznom Palladium, an Italian coachbuilder’s take on a luxo-barge it likes to call a “hyper-limousine.” That said, bear with us for specs and whatnot.
A Slammed, Turboed, 1964 Cadillac Limo, a Trailer, and a Burnout - Nothing Goes According to Plan
The Cadillac Fleetwood Series 75 comes from a time when Caddy was still the epitome of luxury in the automotive world, At over $80,000 in today’s money, it was the car of choice for the upper 1% but, nowadays, you can find one for cheap which is why Brian from Turnin Rust wants to turn one of these sedated mile-chuggers into an LS-swapped, turbo monstrosity that is able to tow a camper while doing burnouts. If that sounds quite random to you, it’s because, well, it is quite random, frankly.
2021 Lexus LS
The LS is Lexus. Or Lexus is LS. Whichever you want to put it. The luxury sedan debuted in 1989 and marked Lexus’ entrance on the U.S. market, but it also went on to become the company’s main pillar and foundation.
After more than 30 years, the Lexus LS is still doing battle against the German trifecta made of BMW’s 7 Series, Audi’s A8, and Mercedes-Benz’s S-Class. That’s why Lexus won’t compromise when it comes to its flagship sedan. Hence the updated 2021 LS we’re about to discuss.
Someone is Selling a 2003 Ferrari 360 Limo And We Can Almost Smell the Lawsuit
Are you interested in a Ferrari 360 Moderna that’s not really a Ferrari 360 Modena anymore? If you are, then you might find this particular ride interesting…or perplexing, depending on what kind of mood you’re in as you’re reading this. This is a Ferrari 360 Modena limousine. There are no typos in that previous sentence. It really is a limousine, though it didn’t start as one. But that’s neither here nor there. What’s important is that it’s for sale in Australia, and you have the opportunity to buy it provided you’re willing to spend on it. But before you do, there is one caveat. Ferrari doesn’t take too kindly to its cars getting bastardized to this extent. The Italian automaker has been known to be litigious in circumstances like this, so before you plop down your hard-earned money for the 360 Modena limousine, you might want to make sure that everything about the car is on the up-and-up.
2020 Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Night Edition
Whenever Mercedes-Benz sets its mind of offering special-editions cars, you can bet they offer the best the carmaker can provide. The same goes for Mercedes-Maybach, but on a whole different level that touches on the stratospheric layers of car luxury. Enter the USA-exclusive Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Night Edition that’s based on the soon-to-be-replaced W222 S-Class.
2020 DS Aero Sport Lounge Concept Car
Over the past decades, luxury has been associated with what we could call analogue concepts: fine leather, wood veneer, exquisite quilting, and silky-smooth fabrics. These days, however, luxury goes hand in hand with technology, too.
Sure, not everybody approves of that, but even the most fanatical skeptic might have second thoughts after getting a glimpse of the DS Aero Sport Lounge. We’re gonna offer up a lot more than that in the words below.
Kim Jong Un Is Rolling Around In Armored Mercedes-Benz Limos but They’re Not From Mercedes
Mercedes-Benz’s Guard series of armored vehicles has been the choice of many heads of state and other high-ranking state officials from around the world for many years. Currently, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier uses an S600 Guard as does India’s president, Ram Nath Kovind, but what’s surprising is that North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Un, as well as other members from his staff, also use S600 limos. Before anybody started pointing fingers at Mercedes-Benz, the German automaker announced it didn’t sell the cars to the regime in Pyongyang and, furthermore, doesn’t even know how the cars got there to begin with.
Remember those awkward scenes shot during the historic U.S.-North Korea summit held in Singapore in 2018? I’m talking about the images of a fleet of Kim’s bodyguards running next to his armored Mercedes-Benz as the dictator was leaving the place of the meeting. They perplexed many, but the purpose of the whole shebang was to showcase the status of Kim as well as his elite troops that protect him known as the Guard Command. But, what Mercedes-Benz found perplexing was something else: the fact that Kim used during that visit and that he also uses back home Mercedes-Benz S600 Guard models. His father, Kim Jong Il, was also seen at times aboard armored S Class models from the W140 generation but those were acquired in a different, more transparent manner as Mercedes-Benz was open to shaking hands with North Korea back then.
2019 Aurus Senat
Becoming an elected official is not as easy as it may seem. If you aren’t a senator but want to pass as one, there’s now the car that’ll play along perfectly, the Aurus Senat S600. It’s the civilian version of Putin’s ride, the Senat L700, and it looks like a Rolls-Royce knock-off. With a +$160,000 price tag and almost 600 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged V-8, the Senat is sure to make some waves.
Russia isn’t really the country your first think of when you’re asked to name a nation famed for building luxurious vehicles. You might think of the U.K., the native country of both Bentley and Rolls-Royce, or maybe Germany as BMW and Mercedes-Benz hail from there. But Russia has been making exquisite limousines for decades that managed to fly below anyone’s radar. That’s because the ZILs and ZIMs of the 20th century never really got exported anywhere mainly since they were built to serve the local officialdom. Now, though, the Aurus Senat looks to pierce beyond the confines of Russia and the first market that awaits for this mammoth on wheels is, obviously, China.
Is this $5-Million Learjet Limo Worth Buying or Just Downright Stupid?
We’ve certainly heard of cars being powered by various types of aircraft engines, but never an airplane fuselage powered by a car engine. But, that’s exactly what is being proposed here with this Learjet limousine, a fully-functional and road legal limo built around an actual Learjet fuselage.
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Pullman Is Nothing Short Of The Royal Penthouse Suite
The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Pullman is truly luxury on wheels. This is perhaps the best the brand has done in terms of opulence to date. This car is a rare find, and we haven’t seen or heard much about it since its debut. This time, however, Shmee150 has gotten his hands on the pre-facelift S600 Pullman and has shown us what this chariot feels like from inside.
20 People Die in Horrific Limo Crash in New York; Questions Raised Over Safety and Regulation
The safety of limousines has again come under fire after 20 people were killed from a horrific crash in upstate New York involving a stretch 2001 Ford Excursion limousine. The accident, which occurred over the weekend, killed two pairs of newlyweds, four sisters from one family, two brothers from another family, the limo driver, and two pedestrians. Details on how the people died are still unclear, but the aftermath of the incident has put the spotlight — yet again — on limousine safety, specifically on measures that need to be made to ensure that an accident like this doesn’t happen again.
President Donald Trump’s New Presidential Cadillac Limo "Beast" is Finally in Service
The new presidential limousine, loosely similar in appearance to the Cadillac CT6, is finally in service and was first seen in public in New York earlier this week where the UN General Assembly gathered. It is the first new presidential limousine in almost a decade.
No other president’s means of transportation is as famous as that of the president of the United States. Commonly known as ’The Beast’. The introduction of the automobile as the president’s means of transportation didn’t happen right away, though, the first president to have a fleet being William Howard Taft in the early part of the last century.
As time went by, the limousines grew in both size and weight when it was decided that bulletproof glass and bodywork is a necessity. Nowadays, the presidential limousines, codenamed ’Stagecoach’, run on truck underpinnings and their specifications are secret.
The fact that President Donald Trump was getting a new limousine was, though, an open secret with the car having been seen testing in camouflage back in April. The previous state car, which debuted back in 2009 under President Barack Obama, was also a Cadillac-badged vehicle.

2019 Mercedes-Maybach Pullman
If Maybach is the top of the luxury Mercedes pyramid, then the Pullman models are the cap stone. These things just ooze opulence from every pore, and now there’s a new one sporting a restyled front end, new interior color schemes, and the latest audio entertainment features, all packed into more 20 feet of baller automobile.
Continue reading to learn more about the 2018 Mercedes-Maybach Pullman.
Donald Trump will officially become President of the United States of American on January 20, 2017. Love or hate him, he’ll be living in the White House and riding around in Cadillac’s latest version of the Beast.
Trump’s new ride hasn’t officially been debuted or even confirmed, but spy photographers sleuthing around GM’s Milford proving grounds this past summer captured the world’s first look at the all-new Caddy.
The car’s overall design is clearly visible through the camouflage. Cadillac’s current designs are used, including the front clip reminiscent of the new CT-6 sedan. It features a grille with three horizontal bars and Caddy’s new crest. Vertical LED headlights and flared front fenders further solidify the look. The car’s long wheelbase is an obvious change from a conventional CT-6, as is the oddly square windows and roof. The rear of the car features more Cadillac cues, including the vertical taillights.
Despite all the Cadillac detailing, this isn’t a Cadillac. If this presidential limo is anything like President Obama’s 2009 Cadillac, Trump’s car will ride on a medium-duty GM frame and might be powered by GM’s 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel V-8. Then again, the car could be riding on a modified version of the Silverado HD’s fully boxed steel frame, since GM doesn’t currently make a medium-duty truck like the TopKick of the late 2000s.
Either ways, the car will surely be filled with James Bond-like gadgets and technology, including life support to thwart bio-weapons, secure telecommunications, countermeasures for protection, and a cabin secure enough to absorb a direct impact from explosives. It’s even rumored cases of the President’s blood are carried aboard should he need an emergency transfusion. All this adds a tremendous amount of weight, hence the need for a medium-duty chassis and super huge tires. It’s no wonder Obama’s limo earned its nickname of “The Beast.”
Cadillac’s reign of providing presidential limousines dates back to 1984 when Ronald Reagan broke the long tradition of using Lincolns. The 1983 Cadillac Fleetwood featured a 17-inch stretch and a raised roof three inches taller than stock. Bulletproof glass and the extra length necessitated heavy-duty brakes, oversized tires, and an air-ride suspension system. Otherwise, the car was mostly stock.
We’d expect Trump’s ride to feature all the modern luxuries the billionaire is accustomed to. Perhaps he’ll even help pay for any personalized upgrades he’s requesting. Just don’t count on knowing anything about it – the Secret Service keep details about the president’s limo classified as top secret.
