The Maybach sedans are DaimlerChrysler’s ultimate expression of elite luxury-car splendor. Unveiled in 2004, the Maybach comes in two basic configurations: the standard-wheelbase 57 and the ultra-long-wheelbase 62, which stretches the already impressive 225.3-inch overall length (and 133.5-inch wheelbase) of the 57 to 242.5 inches overall riding on a 150.7-inch wheelbase. These specifications qualify the 62 as the longest passenger sedan on the market by a good margin. The standard engine in the 57 is a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 that develops 543 horsepower. A sporty “S” model of the 57 released last year offers a 6.0-liter V-12 and more than 600 horsepower, along with 20-inch wheels, carbon fiber trim, unique paint, and a more aggressively tuned suspension system. The 62, though more of an über-limo, is also available in “S” version for 2007 and so equipped can bully its near 6500-pound mass to 60 mph in just over five seconds. This makes the Maybach 62 the quickest “chauffeur-driven” sedan on the planet, in addition to the longest. In addition to a 612-horsepower twin-turbo V-12 engine, the ’07 62 S also gets a revised front-end treatment, monochromatic exterior paint, 20-inch wheels, and revised tail section with trapezoidal exhaust tips. All 62s feature three-person rear seating with reclining multi-mode bucket seats, privacy glass, feather-stuffed pillows, power closing doors, 21-speaker surround-sound audio system, dual-monitor DVD entertainment system, and available wireless Internet connectivity. Each Maybach is built to order and sold exclusively through Mercedes-Benz dealerships.
