from a report in the "Car Connection":

The ultra-luxurious Maybach will slide a bit on the sales charts next year, a report in a German newspaper suggests. The paper, Germany's Handelsblatt, quotes Mercedes chief Eckhard Cordes as saying the demand for the Maybach 57 and 62 sedans will drop below the estimated 500 units sold last year. Reuters adds that Maybach may only have sold 67 cars in the first quarter, based on market research. In addition to trying to boost Maybach sales, Cordes is dealing now with drops in quality at Mercedes (though the brand experienced a turnaround in the latest J.D. Power Initial Quality Survey) and the financial woes at smart.

In my opinion, they need to axe both Smart and Maybach, and put that money into developing better Mercedes-Benzes.

My next door neighbor has a 4-door Maybach. Not sure the model, but I wanna say 62 or 67 - almost 100% sure its a 67. Its fairly new...maybe last October. Them things are damn ugly, but also damn fast. Don't they have like a 500+HP V12??? But still, I would take a 300 anyday over that.

Ya....he is a loser though. Well, a smart loser. He finds women with money, marries them, then divorces them. He just "cheated" on what we think was his 4th wife. So I'm sure he has some green put back.

He doesn't even take care of it. Parks it outside in all weather. God forbid the thing has seen a bath (other than rain)....I don't even want to imagine the inside. Probably got straw wrappers crammed up on the dash. Its sad....
