    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 ...

    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 ...

    Maybach and de Grisogono team up to offer diamond-studded limousines

    Schmuck. It's the German word for jewelry. It's also the kind of customer who would be interested in buying a Maybach paved in diamonds. But that doesn't appear to be deterring the top-of-the-line Daimler brand from icing out its limousines like a rapper with a new record contract. Back in 2006, Maybach teamed up with Wellendorf jewelers to offer ...

    Maybach 62 Guard keeps the rich coddled from harm's way
    1299761940

    Typically, when an automaker develops an armored version of one of their sedans or SUVs, the added weight taken as inherent has an adverse effect on the car's performance. But with the new Maybach Guard, the top-of-the-line Daimler division says it has whittled this down to a minimum. The negligible effect of the added protection on the Maybach 62 comes ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    While its enduring legacy will forever be crippling hyperinflation and the inability to fight the rise of Nazism, Germany's post World War I Weimar Republic has something of a positive, cultural heritage. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, theater, art, architecture (Bauhaus anyone?) and music all flourished in pre-Hitler Germany. Cabaret and promiscuity ...

    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 ...

    The rumors, the announcement, the official photos...none of it was enough to believe a once sensible company like Daimler-Benz could have created something so outrageously, ridiculously impractical as a six-figure, all-white, high-performance, partial-convertible, super-luxury limousine. Seeing it on video doesn't quite make it believable either. (It's ...

    Price of exclusivity rising: Maybachs get $3500 price increase

    Mercedes has a novel idea to simulate sales of its sluggish-selling Rolls-Royce competitor. Since it's not selling as well as the company had hoped, why not crank up the price? The Maybach 57 and 62 have both received a $3,500 price increase for the 2008 model year, bringing their total tallies to $341,750 and $392,750 respectively. The Maybach marque has ...

    Even in the post-Chrysler age, Maybach remains a bit of a thorn in Mercedes' side. Its vehicles have been far less than the sales success hoped for, prompting Daimler to buy back 29 Maybach dealers. Subsequently the parent company wouldn't be so eager to invest more into the ultra-premium brand, but reports are circulating the internet of a new version ...
