Twelve-cylinder and all-wheel the freestyle

Despite the Maybach, in the meantime, no private model or even an own brand in Daimler's Portfolio and only the finest equipment variant of the S-represents class, especially in China, more popular than ever. Although most of the well-to-do customers opt for a lackluster six-cylinder variant, but who really holds on to something, with a dozen combustion chambers under the hood between Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou on-the-go.

Maybach always had an Image Problem - the Rolls-Royce is not

Daimler AG has allowed since the 90s, so some of the business blunder, the billion cost. The planned world-AG is a thing of the past, Smart will in future be conducted from China, and some participation in major international corporations, is almost forgotten. The greatest temptation of the Swabian omnipotence of thought, however, was the revival of the Maybach brand at the turn of the Millennium. 1000 to 1500 vehicles, or considerably more should it be per year, at least, should roll in the Nobel areas of Shanghai, Los Angeles, Dubai and Munich. But after the luxury double from Maybach 57 / 62 celebrated the beginning of the third Millennium, a glorious Premiere, not happened much.

With increasing demand and corresponding prices are expected, particularly in the case of particularly exclusive equipment or special models such as the Zeppelin to.

In the 30s of the Maybach Zeppelin was the automobile counterpart to the world economic crisis. In the 20s and especially the 30s, the Beautiful showed and Rich too happy with what they had; an exclusive luxury sedan following the model of Horch or Maybach was, of course.
