    Report: These cars are headed to the Great Crusher In The Sky
    1345834680

    It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse. CNN Money has ...

    Opinion: Postmortem: Maybach meets its maker
    1345580940

    Why Daimler's Ultra-Luxe Brand Couldn't Compete With Bentley And Rolls Daimler took hubris to a new level believing that it could simply invent a new brand. What was intended to make a big splash in the premium luxury car market has ended with a dull thud. Almost exactly a decade after it lifted the first of the big cars into New York by ...

    Report: Maybach officially discontinues all models for 2013
    1344956460

    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 ...

    Report: Biggest Rebate Ever? Maybach buyers to get $100,000 spiff
    1334772000

    Our sister site, AOL Autos, just dug up one of the largest rebates we've ever seen on a new car. If, for some reason, you must have a Maybach before the brand ceases production altogether, you may in line to snag a tidy $100,000 rebate. Daimler previously let slip that the company will kill the ultra-luxury brand in 2013 and replace it with a new high-end ...

    Auctions: Jay-Z and Kanye's wrecked Maybach fetches just $60,000 at auction [w/video]
    1331829900

    Sorry, Phillips de Pury & Company, but you guys evidently had no business auctioning this car at a sale of contemporary art. Because no matter what the dynamic rap duo of Kanye West and Jay-Z did to it, this 2004 Maybach 57 is, first and foremost, a used car. Clearly the art community has voted with its wallets – and decided that the vehicle's ...

    Report: Maybach lost upwards of $500k on each vehicle sold
    1328742060

    Daimler is shuttering Maybach in 2013 after seven years of production. In that time, the company's ultra-ultra-luxury arm managed to sell just 3,000 units, and CAR reports Daimler lost somewhere around $500,000 on each and every one of them. Even with a ludicrous price tag of over $370,000 for an "entry" Maybach 57, the brand couldn't quite recoup the ...

    Official: Daimler increases prices on 2012 Maybach models
    1324596600

    That Daimler can't sell enough Maybach superluxury sedans to justify the brand's existence is the worst-kept secret in the entire automotive industry. The numbers don't really make a dent in what its competitors sell, and they are but a drop in the bucket of what the company moves as a whole. That's what's prompted Daimler to seek out more cost-effective ...

    Report: Mercedes-Benz killing Maybach in 2013, replacing with S600 Pullman
    1322241360

    According to an unnamed Mercedes-Benz source speaking with AutoWeek, the German automaker is killing off its Maybach line in 2013. The unsurprising news comes after the brand was resurrected in 2002, but failed to meet sales expectations with its two core models, the Maybach 57 and 62. Further solidifying its fate, a deal with Aston Martin to aid in the ...

    Report: Maybach Cruiserio Coupe bites the dust as Xenatec declares bankruptcy
    1320699600

    You just can't catch a break in this world if your name is Maybach. The superlux Daimler division has had trouble selling enough vehicles to seriously challenge the likes of Bentley and Rolls-Royce – divisions of arch-rivals Volkswagen and BMW, respectively. It can't seem to broker a viable deal with Aston Martin to produce a new range. Even that ...

    Official: Maybach celebrates Daimler's 125th with special edition 57 S
    1316780880

    Daimler may not be able to sell very many Maybachs, but there's a flip-side to that equation: Rarity. Exclusivity. Qualities which a Maybach has in spades. But if every tycoon and magnate in your elite neighborhood already has one, and you want to stand out a bit (but not too much) from the crowd, you're going to want something even more exclusive.

    Project Kahn customizes Maybach to commemorate William and Kate's royal wedding

To mark the occasion, the groom, one William Arthur Philip Louis Mountbatten-Windsor, better known as Prince William of Wales, and his bride-to-be, Kate Middleton, have been "honored" by exotic car customizer, Project Kahn.

    Daimler's ultra-premium brand Maybach may be able to compete with the likes of Bentley and Rolls-Royce when it comes to sedans. But with the menacing Exelero concept remaining exactly that, the Double-M marque has nothing to rival the Bentley Brooklands and Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe. Enter Xenatech with the solution you see here. The German engineering ...

    Maybach unveils updated range for 2011 [w/video]

    Reports of Maybach's demise may have been slightly exaggerated – for the time being, anyway. The ultra-premium Daimler brand has released updated versions of its range, which is essentially the same vehicle with different configurations. For MY2011, the Maybach 57, 57S, 62 and 62S feature a handful of cosmetic, mechanical and interior equipment ...

    Report: Maybach to get facelift in Beijing before brand gets the axe
    1268674260

    If a recent report out of the UK is to be believed, Maybach is set to get the axe in the very near future. However, as a last hurrah, all three models from the ultra-luxury division of Mercedes-Benz (57, 62 and Landaulet) will receive facelifts this year. The last round of top-zoot Maybachs will debut in late April at the Beijing Motor Show. Expect the ...

    If you want, say, a custom Chevrolet Corvette or Mercedes-Benz, there's no shortage of aftermarket tuners who'd be glad to help. If your taste (and budget) demand something a little more opulent, however, then there are only a handful of companies at your service. And one of them is Project Kahn. After taking on the likes of Bentley and Rolls-Royce, the ...

    Highest and lowest depreciating cars of 2009 in the UK

    Car price guide Parker's has produced its latest depreciation lists for cars in the UK. It's probably of most use if you're shopping at the lower-priced end of the car spectrum, since a straight-up comparison would be pointless. Seven of the 10 cars with the least depreciation are Japanese, headed by the Honda Jazz, and all of them are small. Five of the ...

    Zetsche: Maybach "not significant or relevant," but a facelift is coming anyway
    1260891000

    Maybach's 2009 sales through the first eleven months of this year have declined about 20 percent. That's at the kinder end of the industry average, all the more impressive because the "cheapest" one starts at $358,000. The part that's not so kind is the actual number of sales: 88, versus 110 last year. Mercedes-Benz boss Dieter Zetsche has told Autocar ...

    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again .As if it knows already that slapping the Zeppelin name on its slow-selling flagship limo wouldn't do the trick, Daimler is back at it with a very mild facelift to its Maybach line. It's so mild, in fact, that the test mule was able to circulate undisguised, as we really had to compare side by side to see what ...
