    Report: Maybach name to be resurrected for long-wheelbase S-Class
    1389884400

    Maybach was an audacious idea - a Mercedes-Benz that could truly do battle against Rolls-Royce - that ended up being a catastrophe, thanks to lackluster sales. After a 10-year stretch that was punctuated by nothing more exciting than the stillborn Exelero and Jay-Z and Kanye West attacking one ...

    Report: Daimler to bring back Maybach name on flagship S-Class?
    1382547660

    Daimler's (relatively) brief ten-year romance with the Maybach brand may have drawn to a close, but that doesn't mean the name is lost once again to the annals of history. According to the latest reports coming from Germany, Mercedes-Benz may opt to keep the Maybach name alive on the top-tier ...

    Report: Mercedes S-Class stretch variant to command $200,000+
    1375122600

    We recently spotted a stretched version of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but it sounds like this new ultra-luxurious version of the sedan might not be quite as much of a Maybach-replacing model that we initially expected. Automotive News says that the car has somewhat more modest targets, with ...

    Spy Shots: Next Mercedes S-Class stretching into this 600 Pullman limo
    1363371360

    To the concern of nobody in particular, Mercedes-Benz will not be re-upping its Maybach line of ultra-luxury limousines. No, instead the German automaker will be stretching its already roomy S-Class, to make this upcoming 600 Pullman version of the decked-out beast. The car in our new gallery of ...

    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.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    1330378260

    The memory of Jay Z and Kanye West laying waste to a $350,000 Maybach for the duo's "Otis" music video continues to bring a smile to our face. We're always fans of the Mad Max treatment on any vehicle, and taking a Sawzall and a cutting torch to a ludicrously expensive luxury barge remains the ...

    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 ...

    Report: Bentley courting Maybach celebs with letter-writing campaign
    1326826740

    When Daimler let slip that Maybach was on the chopping block, the German automaker reportedly insisted that ultra-luxury editions of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class would replace the doomed marque.

    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. ...

    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 ...

    You just can't catch a break in this world if your name is Maybach.

    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 ...

    Report: Birdman can't pay for his new $8 million Maybach Exelero
    1313776860

    What kind of person would order an $8 million Maybach? The same sort who'd take another Maybach and hack it up with a saw and blowtorch. That's right, a hip-hop mega star. Long before Jay-Z and Kanye West shot the music video for "Otis", Bryan "Birdman" Williams had placed his order for his very ...
