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 lifetime subscription.
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 them.
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 first class."
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 detent position.
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 available.
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 seconds.
Ten airbags, including two adaptive front airbags, four side-impact airbags, and front and rear side curtain-type airbags, are installed.

Sliding around corners as they weave their way through one of Britain's
most exclusive areas, these are the rich Arab playboys who visit London
every summer to show off their flashy wheels.
But residents of Knightsbridge, central London - which has an average house
price of £3.6million and is home to Harrods
The petrol-heads and their motors are cheered on by camera-carrying
youngsters, known as the Carparrazzi, but are hated by a number of furious
residents who claim their lives are being ruined.
Millionaire Boy Racers, which goes out at 10pm, also shows how police are
clamping down on the boy racers who drive recklessly in their Bugattis,
Ferraris, Koenigseggs and Lamborghinis.
The footage here was shot in front of the expensive London department store
Harrods. It shows two things: the first is just how common it is to see
supercars which have been brought in from overseas, as there is an almost
endless procession of foreign plates.

Perhaps you could call it a Furrari.
As a statement of untrammelled wealth, this motor takes some beating.
Normal 599s start at £212,000, but customised versions cost hundreds of
thousands more. And when that black velvet gets spattered with dirt or mud,
you can't take it to a car-wash. Instead, every inch needs to be shampooed
and hand-brushed by a team of flunkies.
In recent years, around the time of Wimbledon, Royal Ascot, and the Lord's
Test, the streets of Central London have played host to an extremely modern
addition to the time-honoured calendar of the summer social season. To
those in the know, it's called the 'Ramadan Rush'.
In the weeks before and after the Muslim holy month of fasting, which this
year begins on Tuesday, thousands of young and spectacularly wealthy
residents of oil-rich Gulf states flock to our capital, seeking an escape
from the oppressive heat and (whisper it quietly) conservative laws and
social customs of their home countries.
This weekend the streets around the luxury hotels of Park Lane and the posh
shops of Knightsbridge will be clogged with bespoke Lamborghinis, Bugattis,
and McLarens, along with rarer brands of high-octane sports cars with names
such as Koenigsegg, Pagani and Saleen. "mega rich" arab arabic supercar

You can spot the Ramadan Rushers from their overseas number-plates, often
in Arabic. Most come from Qatar, Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, and are in
the UK for just a few weeks at a time (any foreign vehicle in Britain for
longer than six months must be registered with the DVLA in Swansea, and
carry British plates).

Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, an all new V12 all wheel
drive flagship to replace the Murcielago. Packed with technological
innovations and comfort, it's a more comfortable car to drive as far as
super cars go, more powerful, lighter, and vastly improved with handling.
The body is very reminiscent to the Reventon design concept rather than
it's Murcielago sibling. Exactly what a new flagship from Lamborghini
should be. During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what
the car is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you

consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of

exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have

Mercedes-Benz Destroying Maybach in 2013
Listen to what GTspirit.com has to say:
Time is up for Maybach. Daimler AG has decided to pull the plug on Maybach
after a decade of disappointing sales and lack of profitability. The German
company will instead focus on the fifth generation Mercedes S-Class
scheduled for 2013. This news follows months of rumors regarding the future
of the German luxury car manufacturer.
