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.

2013 Bentley Mulsanne Executive Interior Concept (SH)
THE PERFECT CONNECTIONS
•Bentley confirms EXECUTIVE INTERIOR for Mulsanne flagship
•Theatre and iPad Specifications multimedia packages introduced
•Entertainment and advanced business connectivity meets handcrafted
(Crewe, 1 March 2012) Bentley's advanced multimedia Mulsanne Executive
Interior Concept, first showcased at the 2011 Frankfurt Show, is now moving
from the design studio to the commissioning suite with the introduction of
Theatre and iPad Specifications offering state‑of‑the‑art multimedia
connectivity on the move.
"The original Mulsanne multimedia concept was previewed at several special
customer events across the globe and the reaction was immensely
encouraging. Bentley has now created two bespoke Specifications, Theatre
and iPad, and we're confident they will meet the expectations of customers
needing a business-focussed environment or simply a relaxing space where
films, music, television and the internet can be enjoyed," comments
Alasdair Stewart, Bentley's Member of the Board for Sales and Marketing.
Both the Theatre and iPad Specifications are seamlessly integrated into the
Mulsanne's sumptuous and supremely comfortable cabin, which takes Bentley's
craftsmen and women over 170 hours to create. When not required, features
like the drop-down screen or picnic tables retract and are stowed both
quickly and discretely.
Theatre Specification for home entertainment and comfort on the move
With the Mulsanne Theatre Specification passengers in the rear cabin can
enjoy a wide range of entertainment -- choosing between DVD movies,
television programmes, or music -- which is offered via a 15.6-inch
centrally located HD LED screen. As an alternative, each headrest is
equipped with its own 8-inch screen, enabling passengers to select their
own entertainment and listening in private through high quality Bluetooth
Business users can take full advantage of the powerful processing
capability and connectivity of the boot-mounted Apple Mac computer which is
selectable for display via the HD LED screen. Twin USB ports positioned in
the centre console provide easy access to the Mac to upload films, music
and data or documents for use either in the cabin or once the journey ends.
Finger-tip control is provided via an iPod touch allowing navigation of the
technology by means of a unique Bentley 'App' and bespoke reading lights
have been designed to provide optimum illumination for viewing documents.
The opportunity to unwind in style is also catered forwith an exquisitely
detailed, Bentley‑designed, luxury bottle cooler with space for two
full-size Champagne bottles in a canted position, allowing opened bottles
to be put back in the cooler. With one touch of a button, the frosted glass
door quietly slides open to reveal three hand‑blown and hand-cut lead
crystal champagne flutes, displayed beautifully by the white LED accent
The flutes are exclusively created for Bentley by renowned British
designer, David Redman of London, and echo the racing spoke design of the
Mulsanne's 21" 5-spoke Sports alloy wheel. The flutes can be placed in the
bespoke-design bright chrome holders that deploy from the centre seat
cushion. These also adapt to work as normal cup holders when required. The
bottle cooler and fluteholders are discreetly concealed when not in use and
the elegant design of the cooling system means that no boot space is
iPad Specification for office level functionality and connectivity
Two beautifully crafted, electrically-deployed veneered picnic tables for
rear passengers provide a soft hide writing surface, colour-matched to the
seats of the Mulsanne, and at the press of a button twin iPads with
wireless keyboards are revealed.
Both rear passengers can work on documents or files independently, email,
browse the internet, make video calls or play music or games. The picnic
tables are cleverly designed so that the keyboards can be easily removed
and placed on the user's lap for added comfort.
Bespoke finishing touches
Both the Theatre and iPad Specifications of Mulsanne Executive Interior can
be specified with a range of finishing touches including a Tibaldi fountain
pen from its specially commissioned Collection which will be hand veneered
to match the car and is discretely stowed in a dedicated dock in the centre
And seen on a Bentley for the first time, a distinctive Yachting-style
veneer of either Dark Wenge with a Maple Pinstripe or Maple using the Dark
Wenge as the pinstripe motif. Both of these Yachting veneers are available
in a Satin or Gloss Lacquer finish.
