    Often imitated, never duplicated. We're talking about the Maybach Exelero, the high-speed test bed commissioned from Daimler by Fulda tires. Unfortunately, only one was ever made, and it was subsequently sold for nearly $8 million, reportedly to an African diamond tycoon named André A. Jackson. Since then, the Exelero has prompted a few wannabes ...

    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.

    If you want, say, a custom Chevrolet Corvette or Mercedes-Benz, there's no shortage of aftermarket tuners who'd be glad to help.

    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 ...

    One of these days, the guys at Daimler headquarters in Stuttgart will realize that, to make Maybach a success, the marque is going to need to do more than revive some old names and slap 'em on an oversized version of the old Mercedes S-Class.

People who have wondered how long Mercedes will keep dishing out tiny servings of the enormous cars can wonder no more: top guy Dieter Zetsche has said Maybach is here to stay, and that the brand "is not losing money." ...
