a 3000lbs car vs. a 6000lbs car? Of course! Lighter is better.

$378,000 for the 62, the 57 is a little bit cheaper

sorry dude... unless you are modded to the teeth, the Maybach will hand you your butt on a silver platter...

Those things are big, but are nothing to screw with... Their highway performance should be even more impressive than their 0-60 times...

It is just hard to argue with yhe torque and WHP a twin turbo V12, especially with our pea-shooter sized 2.0L flat four....

They are very fast in a straight line. As fast as US 2.5l STi. Road and Track clocked a 57 at 0-60 4.9 sec., 1/4m 13.4, handling is good for a 6000lbs car but not STi good.

they pack around 10hp/100lbs of weight. Their engines like most MB engines are under-rated. They have ~600hp and 600+tq

There are cars to drive, and then there are cars to be driven in. The Maybach is definitely a car to be DRIVEN in. Especially the 62 wheelbase model. If you're intending on only driving yourself around, why then you would purchase a limo? Does this guy have a driver?

i disagree, can you imagine how much fun it would be to drive one of these? ramming into other cars, taking down small buildings... maybach mayhem! (i think that's actually a cheat in GTA VC)

Bang4boost,
Maybach is a brand made by Mercedes-Benz, they are those ultra expensive cars that people like Bill Gates could afford.

It would be crazy to drive that car yourself, it's like taking your small condo on to the road. I actually did see one outside the toll booth of GWB once, very big, very classy.

Originally, Maybach was a brand of ultra-luxury cars but was killed off due to the Great Depression. Recently, Mercedes-Benz bought the rights to the Maybach and started working on a new Maybach before 2000 that would end up competing with Bentleys and Rolls-Royces. Shortly before the car's debut, its name went from "Mercedes-Benz Maybach" to just "Maybach" because DaimlerChrysler got feedback from potential Maybach owners who felt they wanted a car somewhat separate from Mercedes-Benz to indiciate its elevated level of luxury. Each Maybach is custom-tailored at the buyers' request since you order them rather than buy them off the lot.

For those of you who have some insight into rap music, the MTV Diary of Ja Rule that aired several months ago showed him going into a dealership or something to watch a video presentation of the Maybach that they play for potential owners. And his labelmate Ashanti actually owns the Maybach used in her "Rain On Me" music video.

Is your cousin in Virginia? There are plenty of WRX guys around here that would give an arm and a leg to race and check out a Maybach.
