If it’s ultra-luxuriousness, ultra-exclusivity you’re after, the 2008 Maybach 57 doesn’t disappoint. With a six-digit price tag nearing half a million dollars, this four door luxury Sedan comes equipped more than enough power and a long list of creature features to please even the most discriminating car buyers.

For 2008, the Maybach lineup receives fairly minor changes, including a new standard pneumatic door closing assist and a rollover sensor. The 57S and 62S now ride on 20-inch wheels instead of 19-inch alloys.
Make "typical" ultra-luxury sedans seem austere; heavenly ride; remarkable comfort; incredible power; all the prestige you'll ever need.
It seems odd to consider the word "value" in a car that costs well over $300,000; instead, the word "prestige" is more appropriate. The 2008 Maybach is in the same rarefied air as the most luxurious new cars in the world. Mercedes-Benz resurrected this illustrious brand in 2004, and it continues to ably fill the market needs of those who demand a personalized luxury experience that cannot be duplicated by any ordinary mode of transportation.
