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.

On this episode of Ignition, Motor Trend's Testing Director Kim Reynolds

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is a British manufacturer of luxury automobiles
based at the Goodwood plant in West Sussex, England. The factory is located
across from the historic Goodwood Circuit in Goodwood, West Sussex,
England. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of BMW and is the current producer
of Rolls-Royce branded automobiles, whose historical production dates back
to 1904 through Rolls-Royce Limited and Rolls-Royce Motors.
2003+ Phantom (saloon)—Launched in January 2003 at Detroit's North
American International Auto Show, this is the first model from Rolls-Royce
Motor Cars Limited, a BMW Group subsidiary having no corporate connection
with the previous Rolls-Royce Motors company apart from the trademarks
mentioned above. The car has a 6.75 L V12 engine sourced from BMW, but most
components are unique to the car. Parts are sourced from Continental Europe
and the UK. Assembly, leather work, wood work, and finishing is carried out
in a new factory in Goodwood near Chichester, Sussex. The cars are
available in normal and extended wheelbase, and prices start at about

Rolls-Royce Ghost--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review 2012 Chris Moran
Rolls-Royce Ghost--D&M Motorsports Test Drive Review with Chris Moran.
Presented by D&M Motorsports.
Introduced for model year 2010 as the second all-new Rolls-Royce under
parent company BMW's ownership, the Ghost is a slightly smaller, sleeker
and less-costly alternative to the statelier Phantom. Of course
"less-costly" is a relative term when referring a car that, starting around
$250,000, costs as much as a nice house or condo in many areas of the U.S.
As with the Phantom, the Ghost is a combination of contemporary German
technology and classic British artisanship. The car's spaceframe body and
engine come from Deutschland, while the interior trim and final assembly
continues to hail from England.
We got to spend several days living with the Rolls-Royce Ghost, and truth
be told it made us feel like a media mogul rather than a mere automotive
Unlike the Phantom, which is also available in a "Drophead Coupe"
convertible, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is only offered as a "saloon," as
four-door cars are called in the U.K. It comes wrapped in broad-shouldered
styling that is both formal and aggressive. The automaker's traditional
upright chrome grille caps the front end, flanked by narrow Xenon
headlamps. A tall beltline runs the length of the car with a bit of a curve
to it and meets the gently sloping roofline at a well rounded rear-end
treatment. At a massive 212.6 inches long, the Ghost fit in our garage with
only a few inches to spare.
Wide-opening rear-hinged "suicide" doors make ingress and egress into the
Rolls-Royce Ghost's voluminous rear cabin easier; an electronic lock
prevents these doors from being opened while the car is moving. As the
car's heritage warrants, the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament resides just
above the front grille. However, in a high-tech nod to the realities of
modern motoring, it automatically retracts into the vehicle when the Ghost
is parked for the sake of security. A cap at the center of each wheel is
engineered to rotate separately so that the "R-R" logo remains upright at
Our tester came in a Claret (i.e maroon) paint treatment with the extra
cost ($5,750) silver satin bonnet (hood) treatment that we found a bit
garish, though it proved to be an attention getter.
Under the Rolls-Royce Ghost's long hood resides a 6.6-liter V12 engine that
generates a generous 563 horsepower and is strong
enough to propel this nearly 5,500-pound vehicle to 60 mph in a claimed 4.7
seconds. All those horses are channeled to the rear wheels via an
eight-speed automatic transmission, and tradition dictates that it's
operated via a column-mounted shift lever. In this case it's BMW's
electronic gear-select system in which you push the lever up for reverse,
down for drive and depress an end button in to put the transmission in
park; it works well enough but half the time we accidentally engaged the
windshield wiper stalk instead. The powertrain delivers smooth and
stunningly quick acceleration on demand, yet remains docile around town so
as not to overpower a driver. The Ghost is rated at meek 13-city/20-highway
mpg fuel economy, which should be of little consequence to a well-heeled
The Rolls-Royce Ghost rides on a sophisticated double wishbone suspension
up front with a multi-link array at the rear and automatic damping
height-adjustable shock absorbers at all four corners. It delivers a smooth
ride yet remains surprisingly tractable through the curves. While the car's
easygoing steering creates a certain disconnected feeling from the road,
hairpin turns and sudden curves didn't seem to unnerve the suspension, with
only a modest amount of stability control intervention coming to the fore
during the most-extreme maneuvers. The car was rock solid and smooth
sailing at highway speeds, with the ability to leap fairly athletically
from one lane to another when called upon. We felt a few bumps and jolts
over pockmarked pavement, due largely we suspect to the standard run-flat
tires (which by nature are stiffer than conventional rubber), but by the
same token the ride is never floaty or bouncy, which will certainly spare
rear-seat riders from ever feeling seasick in this land yacht.
