Around four months after their acclaimed world premiere in New York, the high-end Maybach 57 and long-wheelbase Maybach 62 saloons were making their debut on European roads. Equipped with the best automotive technology the 21st century had to offer, they were crafted in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and designed with meticulous attention to detail. The new Maybach saloons reflected the expertise of DaimlerChrysler as the world’s most advanced and tradition-steeped vehicle manufacturer, while benefitting from the technical guidance and skill of its sister brand Mercedes-Benz in the worldwide luxury car segment.
These are complemented by further masterpieces of automotive engineering which were specifically developed for the Maybach, such as the ‘Type 12’ engine (turbocharged V-12, 5.5-litre, 543 hp), which delivers more power and torque than any other standard-production saloon car engine in the world, a 600-watt sound system with Dolby surround sound at every seat, and a highly efficient four-zone climate control system with two separate air conditioners.
Maybach’s technical excellence is combined with equally unique elegance, aesthetics, and design perfection. The harmonious interplay of form, colour, and materials lends these high-end saloons a design quality which accentuates their serene character and gives them an unmistakable identity. The highest-quality materials—among them more than 100 exquisitely crafted and hand-fitted items of fine wood trim—embellish the interior. The extensive range of standard and optional equipment gives Maybach customers over two million ways of equipping their high-end luxury car to their personal taste.
Delivered new to Japan, this 2003 Maybach 57 was ordered new in its duo-tone colours of Caspian Chromaflair Black and Bryce Canyon Red over Beige Leather. Loaded with accessories and options, it’s easy to see why the Maybach had a price tag of over €310,000 when new. Even at seventeen years old and having been driven 88,000 km from new, this Maybach 57 still offers exceptional performance and refinement.
