Maybach 57S.jpg

Maybach 57. 2002–12 (prod. 3,000 approx. incl. 62). 4-door saloon. F/R, 5513, 5980 cm³ (V12 OHC). Smaller of the revived range of Maybachs, looking to all the world like a Mercedes-Benz S-Klasse (W220), on which it was based. Never considered that exclusive, and always outsold by comparable Rolls-Royces and Bentleys. S models had more power, but were never enough to lift interest in the brand; Daimler killed both the 57 (so called because of its length at 5,734 mm) and 62 in 2012 after a decade of losses.

Manufacturing location: Stuttgart, Germany

Marque: Maybach | Successor: Mercedes-Maybach S-Klasse (X222)
