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.
