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.

2006 Jaguar S Type R Black A2380
Imagine harnessing the power of a pack of muscular, quick, and powerful
jaguars. That's what it will feel like when you grip the wheel and step on
the gas of this beautiful Ebony 2006 Jaguar S-Type R with navigation,
heated seats, Alpine premium sound system, and parking sensors. Jaguars are
sought after because of their distinguished British elegance. You can be
the happy owner of one of the Jaguar family's finest automobiles. With its
emphasis on luxurious comfort, you'll be driving a real gem. And in the
case of the R series, you'll get an incredibly powerful engine. From the
robust 4.2L V8 engine to the 6-speed automatic transmission, this Jaguar is
ready to take you anywhere you want to go. The combination of luxury and
performance all come together in one elegant package. Before you look at
all the pictures listed below, let me describe what you are about to feast
your eyes upon:
EXTERIOR: Radiance? Shine? Class? Yes, these three features comes
together nicely as you gaze at this beautiful EBONY finish that is just the
right color for this car. The paint is shiny and glistening with no dings
or dents or major scratches to speak of. The styling of the automobile is
spectacular and is certainly a step up from the previous body styles. The
shape is in keeping with the distinct look that Jaguar has come to be known
for. Let's talk about the engine again. With a 4.2L supercharged V8 engine
getting 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of
torque your car roars to life with just a tap of the gas pedal. What's also
amazing about the S-Type R is that despite the awesome power, the gas
mileage is rated as 23 highway MPG! That's not too shabby for such great
power. The auto-on and -off headlights are in great working condition and
will help you see in the night just like an adept cat. There are also
rain-sensing variable windshield wipers for when inclement weather hits.
The 18" performance alloy wheels are in very good shape and nicely
compliment the tires which are in good condition. The look is completed
with the "leaper" Jaguar hood ornament pouncing into life right at the
front of the hood. This great car comes with the remainder of its factory
50,000 mile warranty good until November 9, of 2009. However, it also has
the Select Edition warranty which gives it Jaguar warranty up to 100,000
miles or November 9, 2011!
INTERIOR: As you look down through the one touch power tilt and slide
moonroof, you'll notice the interior atmosphere is very classy decked in
CHARCOAL upholstery. As your passengers take to either the front or rear
seats, they will know that they are not just riding in any car, but they
are in a world class automobile that sets the standard for luxury and
class. The heated front leather seats feel like new and are very
comfortable. The carpets, headliner, and seats are all in great condition.
The 16-way power front driver and 12-way passenger seats are very
comfortable and perfect not only for trips but also supportive for "sporty"
driving. As a reminder that you are driving the R and not just any other
from the S-Type series, the R logo is embossed in the seats! At the heart
of the car is the Jaguar navigation unit. With it you can easily reach your
destinations by utilizing the turn-by-turn directions and maps. When you're
backing up, you can avoid needless dings from bumping into hard-to-see
objects thanks to the Reverse Park Control. You will have audible alerts
that let you know when you're getting close to different things. The
premium Alpine stereo system sounds great with its 320 watts of power for
AM/FM stereo with in-dash CD player and trunk mounted CD changer. Your new
Jag includes the following features to make your ride comfortable and
pleasurable: keyless entry, power seats, memory driver seat, rear A/C
vents, cup holders, cruise control, and power tilt steering column! Your
Jaguar S-Type R includes factory mats, books, and three keys (two with
SAFETY: Some of the safety features are: 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, driver
and front passenger frontal and side airbags, front and rear side curtain
airbags, 3-point safety belts, adaptive restraint technology system, child
safety rear door locks, LATCH child seat tethered anchorages, and emergency
interior trunk release.
Please keep in mind that while all of our cars are in great condition, they
are used and may show some minor signs of wear. You will enjoy driving this
car and you will also be proud of yourself for the wise choice you made in
purchasing a pre-owned vehicle. Consider that the 2006 Jaguar S-Type had an
original sticker price of of around $64,000 plus options. You can feel
confident in knowing that you're buying a great car and if you'd like a
panel-by-panel inspection of the car we'd be happy to do it for you over
the phone. It's time to feel the power of your stunning new 2006 Jaguar
