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

According to the manufacturer, Maybach styling balances classic and
avant-garde features. The doors, hood and fenders are made of aluminum.

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 62--D&M Motorsports Video Test Drive Review 2012 Chris Moran
Maybach 62 Video Test Drive and Review with Chris Moran. Presented by D&M
For the exceedingly well-heeled who have decided that only the biggest and
best will do, there's the V12-powered Maybach 62 ultraluxury sedan.
Resurrecting the nameplate from a line of indulgent, custom-built and
mostly chauffeur-driven cars from the 1920s to the '40s, it's one of the
most exclusive automobiles in the world.
Actually, there are two different Maybach sedans: the 62 and its smaller 57
stablemate. The difference is their length in meters (6.2 and 5.7), with
the 62 -- as the longest production sedan currently available -- using its
extra length for the benefit of rear-seat passengers. But its size alone is
only part of the story, as virtually every conceivable premium luxury is
part of the opulent Maybach experience. From world-class leather and wood
trim to its multiple lighting schemes and feathered-pillow head restraints,
the sumptuous Maybach 62 caters to nearly every reasonable (and even
For those wishing to add even more speed to their surroundings, the 62 S
model is also available with an absurdly powerful V12. Regardless, the real
action is out back where highly adjustable twin seats split by a center
console offer lucky passengers not only DVD and CD entertainment but also a
refrigerated compartment in which to store the bubbly.
With a base price of nearly $400,000 when new, each Maybach 62 is built to
order according to its buyer's individual whims from a Maybach "studio"
located within select Mercedes dealerships. Though it has few rivals, its
obvious primary competition is the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Although each sedan
will provide a suitable ultraluxury experience, personal taste will be the
deciding factor. If we had to choose, we'd likely go with the Roller due to
its unrivalled heritage and more conspicuous styling.
Current Maybach 62
The Maybach 62 ultraluxury sedan is offered in two styles: the regular 62
and the higher-performance 62 S. While similar to the Maybach 57, its
greater length and interior volume make it more suitable as a
chauffeur-driven vehicle. Just about everything is "standard," but there
are plenty of opportunities to customize the vehicle with optional features
like three-across rear seating, a glass partition and intercom, as well as
specific paint colors and interior trim. The S version offers its own
unique visual cues like carbon-fiber cabin accents, a restyled grille and
dual Exhaust tips.
Both Maybach 62 models are powered by variants of the twin-turbocharged V12 Mercedes-Benz uses in its most
exclusive vehicles. The regular 62 makes do with a merely prodigious 543 horsepower and 664
pound-feet of torque from its 5.5-liter engine, but the 62 S features an
otherworldly 604 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque from a 6.0-liter engine.
One of the more notable features inside the 62 is the optional Business
Package, which converts this ultraluxury sedan into a rolling executive
suite. It includes a dual-port wireless Internet router, Bluetooth
capability and a multipurpose rear storage area. A Bluetooth Canon printer
integrated into the center console is also offered separately.
As the Maybach 62 is intended to have a chauffeur up front, the primary
focus is on ride quality -- and the 62, of course, doesn't disappoint. The
driving experience itself is much like that of the shorter 57's, with the
V12 generating an abundance of thrust and brakes that are capable of
effortlessly bringing motion to a halt. Although it wouldn't be our first
choice for negotiating tight, congested cityscapes every day, it is shorter
than the typical stretched American limousine for those with such a need.
Plus, it's a tad nicer than a Town Car.
Past Maybach 62 Models
The Maybach 62 made a fashionable splash as a debutante back in 2004. It
satisfied in most every way, as one might expect of a car costing more than
twice as much as the next most expensive Benz-built luxury sedan. The
Maybach hasn't changed much through the years, except for 2006 when all
models came standard with the Parking Assist System and a new Business
Package was offered that turned the 62 into an office on wheels. In 2007, a
high-performance 62 S model joined the lineup with its more powerful
engine, sport-tuned suspension and unique appointments inside and out.
Car Tour -- Rolls-Royce Ghost (2011)
In-depth tour of a 2011 Rolls-Royce Ghost, giving you an opportunity to see
and learn about the majority of exterior and interior features that make
this the more driver-oriented model of the Rolls-Royce family.
This video was improvised (i.e. no script), so please excuse the occasional
fumble for words. As someone who's logged 1000s of miles with RRs and BMWs
you'll have to excuse my many references to both cars, but the Ghost does
borrow a lot from the BMW 7-series. I may make a video of my Alpina B7 in
the future just to underline the similarity of their interior features.
