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.

Here's a weird situation : the guy in the Veyron arrived at the
Intercontinental Carlton palace Hotel in Cannes, France, his girlfriend was
walking next to the car at the beggining. Then he stopped for a while in
front of the hotel's entrance. So people came more and more to see the car.
He was stopped during 10 minutes... But people on the street see people and
come... Then all the crowd was around the Bugatti, the driver was waiting
for something. There was way too many people in front of the hotel,
surrounding the Bug so an employee of the hotel came and asked the Bugatti
driver to leave the hotel ! I think that's the first time a Veyron driver is asked to leave a
place ! The young driver seemed a bit sad... Well you're still driving a Veyron dude, smile ! It's
also the first time I see a 20yo Bugatti Veyron driver...
This car is also known as the "Team Trust" Bugatti Veyron that was driving during this
year's Gumball 3000. I think white is one of the best colours for this
Grand Sport !

After picking up my friends new Bugatti at nearly midnight on a Friday
night we got right back on the road to drive back to LA. The highways were
nearly empty which was so tempting for us! After 10 minutes of highway
driving we were pulled over by an orange county sheriff. No tickets were
issued thankfully, he just wanted to checkout the car since he has never
seen one before and didn't know what it was. I was amazed hearing the Veyron on the highway from
outside the car. The car had a fierce roar under hard acceleration! For
having a stock Exhaust it sounded
incredible. At one point of our drive we ran into the highway being shut
down because of a bad accident so we pulled off until traffic started
moving again. It was quite the night with the entire trip down, picking up
the car, and an exciting drive back! It was at least a 6 hour journey
round trip but coming back into Hollywood around 2am it was a really nice
feeling being back with the car. I really enjoyed the entire experience!
Hopefully all of you enjoy the video as well.

✮ ✮ Bugatti Galibier 16-cylinder $1.42 million USD ✮ ✮
Nearly two years after the Bugatti 16C Galibier concept was unveiled, a new
report is indicating the model has been green-lighted for production.
Although rumored previously, Bloomberg is citing two unidentified sources
who say the Galibier will be launched in 2013 or 2014 with a base price of
approximately 1 million euros ($1.42 million USD).
As you may recall, the Galibier concept is a five-door hatchback with sleek
styling and a bespoke interior. It featured a supercharged 8.0-liter
16-cylinder engine which likely produced between 800 PS (588 kW / 789 hp)
and 1,000 PS (735 kW / 986 hp).
