The word "Maybach" has joined the long list of synonyms for the word "kaput." Mercedes-Benz released the price list for the 2013 models of its super-luxury sedans, with the price column simply stating "Discontinued" for each one of them.

The 2012 models, should there be any left for 11th-hour buyers, maintain the increased MSRPs that Daimler slapped on them late last year after it was known the brand would be terminated next year. But you might still be able to wrangle that $100,000 rebate if you ask nicely, or in Russian, or have Rick Ross ask for you.

It shouldn't be too long before we see the ultimate version of the next generation S-Class, the S600 Pullman, that will replace Maybach. Intriguingly, it's said the Pullman will be offered with every S-Class engine, even the four-cylinder diesel.

      I could have a whole car collection for what this thing costs.

      The Maybach is a very expensive car, unfortunately it looked like a lot of inexpensive cars. People who have that kind of money don't want to spend it on a car that looks similar to so many other cars. The Rolls Phantom has an unmistakable look about. People either love it or hate it, but everyone knows what it is. Rolls has always had a special look about. There is no question when the three white Rolls Phantom convertibles were driven out at the conclusion of the Olympic celebration, they were noticed.

      They must have been banking on the over-indulgence in Hip-Hop Culture to make the Maybach a huge success. Standing in line for 2 days in the rain for a pair of $200.00 gym shoes while neglecting your rent or child support payments is one thing. Selling your soul along with your first born just to drop $100K on a vehicle that should only be driven be a chauffeur is a horse of a different color. In my opinion... there's NO SUCH THING as a vehicle WORTHY such an inflated price.

      No compelling reason for the uber-rich to lay out that kind of coin. An S-Class is just as good, for a lot less money. Nothing distinguished about the Maybach's design, unlike Rolls Royce, for example.

        I completely disagree with you on this one. The exterior of the Maybach may not distinguish itself from the S-class, but it's the interior where Maybach shines. I know the exterior of a car is important and all, but for a person that is going to spend most of Maybach time in the back seat, then that's where you want the car to shine. If you compare the interior of this car, RR, and Bentley, I wouldn't be surprised if most went with the Maybach.

      M-B should just sell or license the designs to Hyundai thus the 57 becomes the next generation Genesis and 62 becomes the new Equus. Oh heck, why not...

      The best, most beautiful, most luxurious car ever built - makes me sad that they will discontinue it.

      The Maybach is just a Mercedes in a party dress--and not that attractive, in my opinion. Good riddance...
