2011 Maybach 62 S






Quote:
Maybach 62 S
Reports of Maybach’s demise may have been slightly exaggerated – for the time being, anyway. The ultra-premium Daimler brand has released updated versions of its range, which is essentially the same vehicle with different configurations.

For MY2011, the Maybach 57, 57S, 62 and 62S feature a handful of cosmetic, mechanical and interior equipment upgrades. The exterior benefits from a new grille (now different between the standard and S models), hood, tail lights and door mirrors, which – in addition to refreshing the limo’s looks – also reduces wind noise for a quieter ride. Underneath the new hood, meanwhile, Daimler has optimized the V12 engine for marginally reduced emissions and fuel consumption, and while the standard engine stays pegged at 542 horsepower, the S version gets an 18-horse boost to 630.

Inside there’s a partition to separate passengers from chauffeur, and the reclining seats previously available only on the longer 62 model can now be fitted on the passenger side in the rear of the 57 as well. The 62 can be fitted with an electro-chromatic tinting glass roof panel, and customers can also specify a 19-inch rear screen instead of the individual 9.5-inch monitors, on which they can view camera feeds from around the vehicle. The perfume atomizer from the Zeppelin model can also be ordered on the rest of the range now as well, and there’s available wireless internet and seat piping either braided or embedded with Swarovski crystals.

The revised Maybach range debuts this Friday at the Beijing Motor Show, where Bentley is also presenting a pair of special editions, Volkswagen its new Phaeton and Audi the long-wheelbase A8 L. If we didn’t know better, we’d think the Chinese had a thing for limos. Make the jump for a promo video.

Outdated looks, should have received some of the S-class facelift's lines.

S-class is a much better buy.

Ive seen a couple maybach's around town and they dont stand out at all. Guess thats good for some, but i would rather have a bentley or Rolls

"The perfume atomizer from the Zeppelin model can also be ordered on the rest of the range now as well."

maybach's are for rappers and dumb people with too much money (maybe that's the same thing.) otherwise, this car doesn't have a niche.

That color scheme is terrible. Amazing cars, but you really have to have a TON of money and absolutely no desire to drive yourself anywhere to buy one of those.

I wholeheartedly disagree. The maybach is nothing but a glorified, ungodly expensive S class. The bentley and rolls have much more relevance than the maybach. Classic looks for the bentley (I mean, who can get sick of looking at a continental gt?) and the pinnacle of luxury and exclusivity in the rolls. Maybach is just lost in the fray. Benz tried to fit in where bentley and rolls lives but failed.

I couldn't agree more. You hit the nail on the head.

I am going to make a controversial statement.

DUN DUN DUN



I think the Continental GT is played. The new Mulsanne and the Brooklands look so much more stately than the CGT. In fact, I think the new BMW Gran Coupe concept looks better than the Conti GT.

I like the wheels. I could probably buy a used 323i for the money of those wheels.
