Relatively unchanged from 2009, the Maybach 57 is a rear-wheel-drive four-passenger luxury sedan motivated by a 5.5L V12 engine discharging 543 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque coupled to a five-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. EPA-estimated fuel economy is 10 mpg city/16 mpg hwy. According to Maybach, the 57 can achieve 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. Equipped with an electro-hydraulic brake system known as the Sensotronic Brake Control, the 57 sedan responds dynamically to road hazards by enhancing operation of the electronic stability control and antilock brake system. Other Maybach 57 safety features are a crash-optimized passenger compartment, three-point seat belts enhanced by high-performance tensioning retractors, belt-force limiters and comfort-fit mechanisms, two-stage driver and front passenger airbags, side air bags in the seatbacks, separate curtain airbags for all seats and a sophisticated sensor system used to detect the type and severity of an accident.Read more Read less
There aren't many changes in the Maybach sedan (or saloon, as they call it) lineup. The 62 is still a long-wheelbase version of the 57, and there are still sportier S versions of each model. Two champagne flutes still come standard, as does a rear refrigerator.
Understated ultra-luxury; truly top-of-the-line comfort, ride, and power; impeccable appointments include champagne flutes and perfume atomizer
When you're talking about a Maybach, you're not really talking about value. With models starting at $350,750, these cars are about luxury. The base 57 and 62 have V12 5.5L twin-turbo engines that can be upgraded to a 6.0L twin-turbo in the S models. Either way, the chauffeur can pilot a Maybach from 0-60 in less than 6 seconds. Fuel economy is 11 mpg city, 16 mpg highway. Folding tables and fabric window curtains are the kinds of standard equipment a Maybach owner can expect for his or her money.
