Actor Samuel L. Jackson, whose extensive resume includes gigs as both Shaft and a Jedi Master (honestly, it doesn't get much cooler than that), was in Germany recently for the Bambi Awards, and while he was in country, he stopped by the Mercedes Museum for a tour and took a little extra time out with his wife, La Tanya, to order up a new Maybach.
Jackson appears to be a bit of a Mercedes guy, as he currently owns a new S-Class sedan and a vintage 280 SE convertible. They'll soon be joined in the garage by a 600+ hp Maybach 57S in Designo Mocca Black lacquer finish. According to Autokiste, he and his wife selected light beige leather with darker beige piping, light wood trim, and a roof-mounted solar panel (among other things) as they went through the car's extensive list of options.

The solar panel allows the car to cool itself when parked with the engine off. Frankly, we're surprised at that option selection, as we thought Samuel L Jackson's inherent coolness would obviate the need for such measures.

      #13, dont be mad cause you cant afford one

      Maybachs are created for people with very specific tastes. 700HP AND more than 700ft/lbs torque to boot in any car is absolutely amazing.

      "1. OBVIATE!?!...Now where's that darn pictionary?"

      Psssst. This is Autoblog, not NASCAR.

      I hope Mr. Jackson's Maybach doesn't crash and burn like "Snakes on a Plane" did.

      The Maybach is the tackiest car ever created, made for African and Middle Eastern Dictators.


      Did anyone see the massive 700hp sports car concept thing at the LA Auto Show? Absolutely horrific in more ways than style.

      Samuel L. Jackson also took delivery of one of the first 2004 Pontiac GTO's and later did the voice work for the initial commercials.
