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.
