    this would be a swell car to own..<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. yah i was thinking since you dont really drive this car compare this to a Rolls Royce Park Ward (which is also the limousine model), or would you prefer to drive the Bentley Azure? how does this compare to the brabus 5.7?

    Isn't the Bentley Azure a 4 seat convertible? Or a coupe?
    So I don't really think that one can compare that, but I still think that the Maybach is a very beautiful car!<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

  6. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    this isnt quite the shit that bentley competes against, unless were talking the bentely arnage lwb version with basically a whole office in the back. two laptops. i think a fax. couple of phones. just a ton of shit. thats the only bentley that runs the same lines as this because its a short limo. the lwb (long wheelbase) version is hot and rare, but not in the way that this is. for rolls. i just dont think it competes with this. the engine is too weak and it isnt as up-to-date. outa the three picks i would take the maybach or bentley (dependin on my mood and if the bentley was fireglow) but definately not tha rolls. <!-- Signature -->

    This car will hurt the sales of 4 door Rolls and Bentleys.<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    ha well id rather have the bently or rolls
     
  9. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    we should be comparing the hummer limo to this thing. not luxury coupes(and/or convertibles)<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    If i was rich enough to have one of these luxo barges...i'd take the Maybach....that interior is the shit for me......<!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    the rolls royce park ward is hardly a sport coupe. it is rolls royce's limousine model. what about the brabus 5.7? that is basically a stretched s500 with a lot of computers and stuff in the back and it has this pretty big tv screen. its on this website. after all you dont drive this car, the guy you pay to drive this car does.
     
  12. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    its a tough question. the rolls has a stronger reputation, and probably its materials will last longer, they also have the 50 years experiance that maybach dont have when they stopped producing. the maybach is more powerful and more advanced in technology and equipment, while the rolls' interior is old but warm and very rich in materials, after all its english! they are a bit overpriced. this competitor for the first time will probably give them a tough competition..

    Rolls has a stronger reputation than Maybach? Maybach doesn't have the experience? Rolls materials will last longer!!!?? are you kidding?

    For those of you who don't know, Maybach is engineered by Mercedes Benz engineers. Engineers from a company that has been world renowned for being the leading edge in automotive technology and luxury for the past 125 years. Don't forget that Benz invented the car. Not Bentley, not Rolls, not anyone. If anything, Rolls and Bentley lack the experience of Benz. Why do you think the Bentleys are still using 50 year old technology? Because there engines are perfect? Please. Their engines are outdated as is their styling and their standard interiors (with the exceptions of the computers and electronics stuffed into the personal commisions). Don't get me wrong, the 6.75L engine was a great engine for its time and is still one of the most powerful available, but that is no reason to not improve on it after so many decades. How outdated are Bentley's? the new Bentley GT will be the first new body style in 50 years!

    The Maybach will be a kick in the pants to these high end car makers to wake up and get back in gear. People expect a certain amount of substance in a car these days. The "old school" rich who were happy with the "Image 1st - technology 2nd" ideal provided by the Bentley and Rolls are dying out and the younger rich who crave sophistication and expect state of the art are coming forward to occupy a large part of the ultra luxury demographics. The Maybach will fit the bill perfectly while the Bentley's and the Rolls' will loose ground if they don't start to update their products to be competitive again.

    The Maybach is the epitomy of automotive technology and the pinnacle of engineering. It is the end product of decades of research and development and takes advantage of the latest advances in technology in its design. It will FAR outperform any Bentley or Rolls of similar size and spec in terms of luxury and refinement. Though Bentley and Rolls are known for ultra luxury, their name is what plays the biggest role. It is simple, 50 year old technology, no matter how great for its time, will not stand a chance against the latest the automotive world has to offer. Technology has advanced too much for this to be even remotely possible.

    Consider this a wake up call to the ultra luxury manufacturers. Bentley and Rolls have been alone too long in this segment and they have stopped advancing. After all why should they? There is no one to compete against so they might as well save the R&D money. The Maybach will be the first in a new movement in this segment. Rolls and Bentley will have to improve their products and update their outdated design if they want to stay competitive. Image alone won't get them very far when there is another very powerful competitor with image, experience, money, and substance.

    This said, I would love to see Bentley and Rolls come out with all new designs. Their cars are still something to be admired, but both of these companies are very capable of producing something completely new equally if not more impressive than the Maybach. The new Bentley GT is a taste of things to come. I, for one, look forward to more...

    Who wouldn't like to see advances in Bentley and Rolls technology? It's about damn time.
     
  14. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    well its a fact that bentley is not using advanced technology , but there is one thing.. you said image is not enough to hold up ...well actually i thinbk it is.....look at a simple example.....go to a hotel and which door do you think the bell boy or whoever the guy supposed to open car doors will open........bentley or maybatch.......its just a matter of image...<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    id rather have a bently or rolls
     
  16. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    neat...
    well, first I think we will have to wait some time to see how this car does against the Bentley and RR

    for those complaining about Bentley's lack of cutting edge technology remember that now that VW owns the brand we will see some things we never expected of them, more tech stuff higher quality and a more diverse product lineup.<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    right! and rolls royce is starting to use engines based from bmw's engines. after all bmw is the largest manufacturer of v-12 engines and rolls has a number of them. but many of you did not look at another car hat i posted!

    the brabus 5.7. it is essentially a stretched benz s500 with the BIGGEST i mean BIGGEST tv in a car i have ever seen and lots of other high tech gizmotry. haha nice word eh?

    maybach because it is first atleast three or four feet longer then the bentley and second because the are way more rare the those "ordinary" bentleys that every wannabe can get for $50.000 used or damaged and simply repare it.
     
  20. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    mmmmmmmm, Maybach. Oh god I want one so bad. I wanna sell my house right now to get one. I'll sell my lex, and my house, and all of my possesions. Maybach.<!-- Signature -->
     
  21. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    how can bentley and rolls be using "old technology".so you are saying they still use the same equipment in their cars from 1950 or whatever...i dont think so. You know the queen got herself a new bentey i think it was. Unique! they are built to measure if you like.
     
  22. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    In the earlier parts of this century, Rolls Royce and Bentley were the class leaders in build quality, luxury, and design. These 2 companies made engines and all vital parts of their cars except for the bodies, which was left for the coach builders. As technology advance, the prohibitive cost of these cars and the increasing volume and availability of cheaper makes of cars began the decline of Rolls Royce and bentley (btw, Rolls Royce bought bentley early in the 20th century, only difference is that bentley is a bit more sport focused, a different grill, and a shorter waiting list, a couple grand cheaper...) in R&D and technology. (when i say decline, it means comparative to other cars) Soon, what was the smoothest, quietest, and well built cars became no longer the best, but lagged behind many cars of today in terms of technology. Bentley and RR is not any louder of less smooth or their cars of yesteryear, but it is other cars that have become better than it.

    Why do RR and Bentley remain excessivly expensive and well known? Because it relies on its heritage and brand name value, as well as boasting "craftsmenship of wood and leather" which is of no R&D cost to them. IE. any nice leather sofa is nicer...

    The Maybach name is a early 20th century automobile builder much like Bentley or Rolls Royce, but based in Germany. It foundered some years ago, and is no longer in business. Mercedes buys the Maybach name as a luxury branch, (such as toyota/lexus, honda/acura etc...) to compete with RR and Bentley. The new Maybach is a completely new car engineered by mercedes and has no relation to past maybachs, except for the name. It uses the ultimate of technology and features, luxury, and engine power (with the help of the Maybach name) to compete with the brand name of Rolls royce and Bentley.

    So in conclusion, the comparason of these cars is based upon the values of the person, whether they value image or luxury
     
  23. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    to drive....i'd take a bentley.

    to be chauffeured....cant beat the maybach.
     
  24. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    i'd prefer bentley azure or arnage
     
  25. Re: vs.Bentley or Rolls

    This is superior to any comparable Bentley.
    Bentley loses to this
