Maybach defines the standards at the very peak of the passenger car
market, at the same time continuing the tradition of the legendary
Maybach automobiles which were among the elite in German and
international automotive engineering together with Mercedes-Benz
during the 1920s and 1930s.
Trailblazing innovations so far uniquely available in Mercedes-Benz
vehicles have undergone further development for the Maybach and are
included in the standard equipment: the electro-hydraulic braking
system Sensotronic Brake Control (SBC™), the electronically
controlled air suspension system AIRMATIC DC (Dual Control),
LINGUATRONIC voice control, the operating and display system COMAND
APS or the automatic emergency call system TELEAID.
These are complemented by further masterpieces of automotive
engineering which were specifically developed for the Maybach and
substantiate its claim to the high-end position in the luxury car
segment: the most powerful, highest powerplant in the world, the
Type 12 engine (with 405 kW/ 550 hp), innovative and comfortable
fully-reclining seats in the rear, a 600 Watt sound system with
Dolby surround sound on every seat and the highly efficient
four-zone climate control system with two separate air conditioners.
a perfect balance of classic and avant-garde features
new Maybach technological excellence is combined with equally unique
elegance, aesthetics and design perfection. The sum of all the
characteristics that render this masterpiece on wheels supreme may
be fittingly described in one word: refinement.
The harmonious interplay of form, colour and materials lends this
high-end luxury motor car a design quality which accentuates its
serene character and gives it an unmistakable identity. The Maybach
represents greatness in a highly elegant manner, a perfect balance
of classic and avant-garde features determining its special
stylistic appeal. The lines of the Maybach are intended to hold a
timeless appeal - an ideal which applies to both the exterior and
interior design. In every sense of the word this makes the new
Maybach an automobile for life.
The highest quality materials - among them more than 100 exquisitely
crafted and hand-fitted items of exotic wood trim - embellish the
spacious interior, whose design was guided by a single objective as
the measure of all things: the greatest possible comfort and
wellbeing for all the passengers and an entirely new definition of
"first class". Accordingly the top Maybach 62 model
literally takes automotive luxury into a new dimension: the interior
has an overall length of 2.68 metres and the distance between the
front and rear seats is 1.57 metres - a unique figure.
peak values for output and torque
newly developed engine of the Maybach reflects the long years of
experience and great expertise of DaimlerChrysler in the
development, design and production of twelve-cylinder power units -
DaimlerChrysler is the world's largest manufacturer of V12 engines
for passenger cars. With a displacement of 5.5 litres, and with the
help of biturbo charging, the Maybach engine develops an output of
405 kW/550 hp, with a maximum torque of 900 Newton metres already
available from 2300 rpm. This gives the "Type 12" power
unit the highest output and torque of any series-production car
engine in the world. Thanks to three-valve technology and highly
efficient catalytic converters it already complies with the strict
exhaust EU 4 emission limits which come into force in 2005.
These high output and torque values guarantee effortless Maybach
performance in any situation: the Maybach 62 accelerates from zero
to 100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds, and thanks to the high torque a
sprint from 60 to 120 km/h takes only 6.5 seconds.
occupant protection with ten airbags
addition to a highly sophisticated body structure, the exemplary
safety technology of this high-end luxury motor car includes a total
of ten airbags -- two adaptive airbags with two-stage gas generators
for the front occupants, four sidebags and two large windowbags on
each side of the interior. The three-point seat belts with automatic
comfort-fit, high-performance belt tensioners and belt force
limiters are integrated into the seats and can therefore develop
their full protective action in any position. By virtue of these
sophisticated safety features the new Maybach passes the stringent
crash tests prescribed by the European and American NCAP (New Car
Assessment Program) with flying colours.
Maybach's high level of handling safety is assisted by the
innovative Sensotronic Brake Control (SBC™) braking system
developed by Mercedes-Benz, which features two central control
units, two high-pressure reservoirs and two hydraulic units in the
case of the Maybach. This means that this high-end car is equipped
with a total of eight braking circuits, while internally ventilated
front disc brakes, each with two callipers, ensure reliable
of contemporary automotive technology
high-end luxury Saloon is powered by the newly developed 405
kW/550-hp "Type 12" Maybach engine which offers more power
and torque than any other series-production passenger car engine in
the world. With its displacement of 5.5 litres, bi-turbocharging and
900 Newton metres of torque, this power unit has everything it takes
to deliver superior driving performance whilst providing the high
level of comfort expected of the luxury car brand.
The electronically controlled AIRMATIC DC (Dual Control) air
suspension is one of the latest innovations from Mercedes which will
also be a prime feature of the Maybach. Using sophisticated
micro-electronics, AIRMATIC DC is able to control the suspension and
damping simultaneously in order to provide unsurpassed dynamic
handling coupled with impeccable ride comfort. The SBC™
electrohydraulic braking system has undergone further development
for use in the Maybach to ensure that the Saloon has braking power
in keeping with its exceptional performance characteristics.

Personal customer support around the clock
addition to its focus on achieving technical perfection and stylish
elegance, the new Maybach prestige car brand also attaches top
priority to providing attentive customer service for its highly
discerning clientele. This new service concept is built around
Personal Liaison Managers, each of whom is responsible for a very
small group of Maybach owners. At the customer's request, the
Personal Liaison Manager can provide support and assistance with a
wide range of activities -- such as organising visits to the Maybach
Manufaktur or scheduling vehicle servicing, for example. Following
the market premiere of the Maybach, customers will be able to
contact their Personal Liaison Manager around the clock.
The styling and appointments of the high-end luxury car are the
result of an intensive exchange of ideas between the customer, the
customer's Personal Liaison Manager and the designers and
development engineers. Their meeting points are the Maybach Centers
around the world or the Center of Excellence, which DaimlerChrysler
is currently setting up in Sindelfingen. The Center accommodates the
Maybach Atelier covering an area of around 2200 square metres. Here,
customers can look through a comprehensive selection of the most
sumptuous materials, exclusive colours, and innovative technical
details. This wide variety of fine woods, paint finishes, leathers
and other exquisite appointments forms the basis for the extremely
personalised styling of each and every Maybach Saloon.
