Price Increase for Maybach 2012 Models

There had been reports that Daimler is axing the Maybach brand because of low sales. And when companies are in the brink of losing a product or a line, what they normally do is to put up the items on sale and put huge discounts to get things going. But this is not the case with Maybach. In fact, Daimler decided to increase the line’s prices to $4,000 across the board, which is a different business decision. Well, hopefully, this move will work out and there will still be some people who will be willing to shell out additional dough for a this limo. Source: Daimler

Mercedes Axes Maybach Brand

With chairman Dieter Zetsche’s recent decision to stop development of the replacement models for the Maybach 57 and 62, the writing was on the wall for this historical brand which represented the ultimate luxury vehicle only the very rich could afford.

Daimler-Aston Martin Talks On Maybach Future Halted

Talks on the proposed partnership between Maybach and Aston Martin have apparently been halted due to unreasonable demands from one of the parties. You may recall that Daimler and Aston Martin have been in talks for several months now to build the next range of models for the struggling Maybach brand. Aston Martin would have gotten access to several technologies from the German manufacturer, notably the M- and S-Class platforms plus the 4.6-liter biturbo V8. These would have provided a big boost to Aston Martin’s development of the Lagonda. Instead, Daimler has announced the cessation of the talks because of Aston Martin’s demands for money. While this development is not… Continue Reading »

Post-apocalyptic Maybach Makes Appearance In Rap Video

At first, you won’t believe your eyes at the treatment this Maybach receives in the video, as it’s hacked and chopped til it looks like Batman’s convertible. When you see a Maybach, its usual backdrop is against a gleaming tower or else you see it with some executive type getting in. Maybachs are the epitome of luxury in the 4-wheeled domain and it would be unthinkable to some to get even a scratch on its flawless paint. The fact that there are so few in the world makes it all the more seemingly untouchable. But touched it is in Jay-Z’s and Kanye’s video, where the message these rappers seem to… Continue Reading »
