  1. Re: u don't need 550 hp in a old womans car

    Alright Vipersrule, your about to get a lesson in cars. We know Lexus, Mercedes Benz, Rolls Royce, and Bentley as the worlds leading super luxury car makers. Now, way back in the day Maybach was on the top of that list. I believe it was bought out by Benz (not sure if at the time the company had been converted to Mercedes-Benz), anyway... Maybach was bought out like Daimler. However, after the takeover Benz must have become Mercedes-Benz (a rich Dutch man bought 20 Benz's if the owner of Benz would change the name to "Mercedes-Benz." Benz was actually a failing luxury car company, and Mercedes was the name of the Dutchmans' daughter). So, now under new management, Mercedes Benz managed Maybach incorrectly, and finally caused the termination of the project. However, when Daimler (another German company bought by Mercedes-Benz) merged with Chrysler, forming DaimlerChrysler, they also brought with them acess to everything Mercedes-Benz had everdone, including the Maybach. So, with Chryslers experience in building V12 engines, and the illustrious history of Mercedes-Benz, the revival of the Maybach was formed. (Back in the day nearly all luxury cars had V12, Cadillac became the American Luxury car with the V16). Anyway, the Maybach has been reborn. So now DAIMLERCHRYSLER, yes DaimlerChrysler is going to produce this car. DaimlerChrylser is now making the Maybach which has a history for being the worlds most luxurious car, and it is way better than the Mercedes-Benz V12 600, its way better than the Bentley Azure, or Rolls-Royce Silver-Seraph or Corniche, whichever you choose. The Maybach, is the king of luxury cars, it is not a grandmothers car. The Maybach is a car for an executive who wants to ride in style and luxury, and he can do that with the Maybach. So, before you jump out making ignorant comments about such a beautiful and powerful car (most available horsepower and torque in its class, in fact the Maybach has more horsepower at lower rpm's than some sportscars), know your history. And I hope you took this lesson wisely.<!-- Signature -->

    someone please bitchslap this kid. The power and torque are important because this car is ridiculously heavy (because of all the luxuries). Go trade some pokomon

  7. Re: u don't need 550 hp in a old womans car

    He's right, cars like this are for women. No need for 550hp, it's not like anyone is going to drive this oversized turd very fast.

    Luxury. Hah, you pussies. If you want a nice leather seat, TVs, climate control and such, then why don't you just stay at home?
     
  8. Re: u don't need 550 hp in a old womans car

    Man... keep your mouth shut. Just because it has nice seats and a dozen amenities you probably don't even have or could afford in your house, doesn't mean you have to diss it. This is an awesome luxury car and it deserves a lot of respect from punks like you who probably drive used Pintos.<!-- Signature -->

  10. Re: u don't need 550 hp in a old womans car

    Retsmah, you must want me to get on your head too. Are Rolls Royce's designed to go fast? Are they designed to beat a CORVETTE? No. Please tell me the main purpose of of a Rolls Royce, wait you dont have too... TO PROVIDE WORLD CLASS LUXURY. All V12's aren't meant or designed for racing. In fact as far as luxury goes, you ONLY want to use V8 or V12. Typically the V8 Luxury cars outperform the V12's, so V12's are meant or exclusive luxury because they provide more horsepower with less effort, making the engine quiter and smoother. A prime example you may relate to is the Mercedes Benz 600 V12. So now that we have that straight, this is not a womans car. This is not a mans car. This is an exclusive car for the rich. Its for people who can afford it. Why the reclining seats? For comfort, you do realise comfort is associated greatly with luxury. You must also realise that most people are more comfortable laying down than resting upright. Why the T.V.'s? Well I imagine if your an executive being driven from upstate New York to lets say Maryland, you probably wont be on the phone most of the time. So you might want to relax with your favorite movie, that's where the DVD players come in. Or maybe you want to stay completely on top of your game, its expensive but you can get DirectTV in your car or plane. So you might want to check in on the Weather Channel of the Financial News Network. Again back to resting with you favorite movie, you do realise that resting is also associated with luxury. So again realise, a far as luxury goes the 2003 Maybach 62 is the flagship. Its not for performance, its not a granny car, or a womans car, or a performance car. It is THE Super Luxury Car. <!-- Signature -->

    Okay, umm, simply put, you try moving this thing, with anything less 300 hp, it's need's all that power and torque just to get this tank moving.
     
  12. Re: u don't need 550 hp in a old womans car

    definatly not an old womans car....can u believe wot this d*ckhead is sayin?
     
  13. Re: u don't need 550 hp in a old womans car

    Is there something wrong with you? What makes this an old womans car?
    This is the highest quality luxury car in the world (arguably). Of course it has 550 hp, if you pay 350 000 for a car, it better have that much.
     
  14. lolwtfthread
     
  15. yes i agree the reason this car has 550 bhp is cos its so heavy, but thats cos its so Cheshire, I'd almost expect it's windscreen wipers to be made of myrrh. despite this , well explained, Vajra.
     
  16. Daimler AG's Mercedes-Benz publicized earlier that it would be discontinuing its Maybach super-luxury line. That is now formal, following the launch of its price list for 2013.
