Maybach 62

review (2002

This is the car DaimlerChrysler felt to build.

For years the top Mercedes, the S had been hailed as a better car a Rolls-Royce, but few took any notice. So Toyota doing a Lexus, has built the Maybach. Unlike however, the Maybach name has a heritage, for the man himself was an engineering of his time as well as building a number of highly expensive, regarded saloons of his own back in the

To put Rolls-Royce in it’s place, the is even more expensive. buys the Maybach 57 – 5.7 metres £292,000 the longer 62 driven Both get a 5.5-litre twin-turbocharged with 550bhp and enough grunt to keep all but the later 911s honest.

But performance isn’t really the This is a huge, huge, far bigger than it even in the pictures, whose sole is to pamper the occupants. So the two individual seats are modelled on the first chairs from Air France, with fold out tables for sandwiches or, more likely, caviar and laptop.

Comfort is and there’s a full recline with extending leg and foot – I defy anyone travelling than 30 minutes not to dose There are TV screens in the back of the seat headrests. Nothing new for you can get that on a Kia today, though not screens this big and the possibility for one to watch live TV while the views a DVD.

Customers who need to know direction to face for prayers can specify a compass in the rear.

So are those rear doors if your driver isn’t enough, you can, damn it, do the job by pressing a button in the roof to the door electrically. But it’s for those in the back to carry out a conversation with those in the the distances are so great. The Maybach perfect.

The side window courtesy slide forward to close, means that unfurled still cover a large of the windows of those massive and passengers can’t easily see Later cars are changed so the blinds slide backwards the front. You’d expect the to have all the latest technology, but the car business moves on at such a that the new S-Class that is this September will more.

The Maybach makes do with a instead of a seven-speed transmission, sensors protruding from the bumper rather than within, and hill-hold, for easy off on gradients, is absent.

So, lounging in the champagne retrieved from the between the seats and silver from compartment above, is a great way to travel and to marvel at the to detail. In order to prevent drips from the champagne marking the carpet, for example, a sliver tray that (magnetically, actually) positions in the correct position to collect the The leather and nubuck is of the highest

Of course. You’d expect Maybach to be highly equipped and it is, the full glass room on our with blind, ingenious lighting and full Georgian effect, is another £10k. You can on eye on how fast your driver is you to your destination via the three mounted dials in the rear that replicate the speedometer, and thermometer in the front.

So is this Maybach 62 a simple or something more sinister? For the of person who considers a £3,000 class plane ticket an ingredient of life, rather spending £1,500 on business or £500 in economy, then the Maybach makes sense. But for the of us, it’s an eccentric irrelevance.
