Maybach 62 Test Drive (And Ride!) with Chris Moran
An in-depth review of the 2005 Maybach 62 with Chris Moran
Maybach was one of the world's most exquisite nameplates in the 1920s and
'30s. The original company was founded by Karl Maybach — the son of
Wilhelm Maybach, who developed the first Mercedes.
Some people were surprised when Maybachs returned in the form of two
closely related, all-new ultraluxury sedans. Each posh sedan is filled with
nearly every sort of comfort and convenience feature offered in a motorcar.
Ostensibly a product of DaimlerChrysler, Mercedes-Benz's parent company,
the modern-day Maybach is actually considered a make of its own.
Maybachs come in two sizes: the regular Type 57 and the extended-length
Type 62. Each model designation indicates the car's length in meters: 5.73
for the Type 57 and 6.17 for the Type 62. Special features include
electronic braking and an Airmatic Dual Control air suspension.
A rearview parking-assist camera is available in the 2005 model. Standard
equipment now includes Robbe & Berking beverage flutes and a handcrafted
Dunhill Collection umbrella. Standard Sirius Satellite Radio includes a
Only one or two Maybachs per day are built at a state-of-the-art facility
in Germany. Mercedes-Benz dealers must sign separate agreements to sell
According to the manufacturer, Maybach styling balances classic and
avant-garde features. The doors, hood and fenders are made of aluminum.
Maybach says a primary goal was to deliver an "entirely new definition of
Twelve body colors are available, and two-tone paint schemes may be
specified. Bi-xenon headlights are standard. The regular-size Type 57 is
225.3 inches long overall, uses a 133.5-inch wheelbase and rides on 19-inch
tires. A standard power-closing feature pulls the door shut from the first
As many as 100 items inside the Maybach are trimmed with exotic woods.
Buyers can mix options with the immense standard-equipment list in numerous
combinations. Available accessories include a luggage set, a sterling
silver champagne goblet, a humidor, a golf bag and a fluffy travel rug.
Buyers may choose from six Grand Nappa leather colors and three types of
wood. All four standard seats are heated, and active seat ventilation is
Occupants can luxuriate in reclining rear seats. A television with a
9.5-inch TFT flat screen includes a DVD player. Interior features also
include four-zone climate control with two air-conditioning units, a
refrigerated compartment, a cordless phone with two handsets and a
21-speaker Bose Dolby sound system. Each sedan also has the Tele Aid
emergency communication system and the Comand integrated control system,
which are available for Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Under the Hood
Breathing with the assistance of twin turbochargers, the 5.5-liter V-12 produces 550 horsepower and 663
pounds-feet of torque. It teams with a five-speed-automatic transmission.
Maybach claims the Type 57 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.2
Ten airbags, including two adaptive front airbags, four side-impact
airbags, and front and rear side curtain-type airbags, are installed.
2014 Bentley Flying Spur vs 2014 Rolls-Royce Ghost! - Head 2 Head Ep. 47
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Kim Reynolds re-enacts the Battle of
Britain by pitting the Union Jack's two great luxury names again each
other — Bentley versus Rolls-Royce. However, these two require testing
that's elevated above the routine, so we've devised as few, ah, unorthodox
challenges. With almost 1200-hp, twenty-four cylinders, and four turbochargers between them, the Flying Spur and
Ghost can both paint tire streaks on the dragstrip. But can they paint with
acrylics on canvas as well? We'll find out. And which car can turn more
heads in ritzy Santa Monica? We aimed video cameras at the sidewalks and
counted the eyeballs. All that, and the answer to which car has a $40,000
paint job, is just a click away!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Bentley Mulsanne video review
The new Bentley Mulsanne is the first all-new Bentley in around 80 years.
And the details on the new car are stunning. Inside, 170 hours are
dedicated to making the cockpit as sumptuous as possible. On the road, the
2.6-tonne Mulsanne makes steady progress. Read the review at
its a 8 million dollar baby and the special attraction is that car is hand

Rolls Royce vs Maybach
It's a battle of the barges as The Sunday Times' InGear reviewers drive the
Rolls Royce Phantom and the Maybach 62. Which limo best cossets a
2011 Rolls Royce Ghost Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
Although not entirely "all new" for 2011, the Rolls Royce ghost was
introduced in 2010 as an all new model in the Rolls Royce lineup, the
smaller sibling if you will to the phantom. It boasts it's own unique
variation of styling, but doesn't fall short of borrowing some styling cues
from the phantom. The Ghost also shares the BMW 7 series platform and
contains a lot of the similar telemetrics interfaces as the 7 series making
it quite easy to get the hang of if you're familiar with the systems. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
