What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The ultimate in luxury: beautiful, refined and each model is totally unique.

Against It's decadent, expensive, environmentally unfriendly and has dreadful residual values.

Verdict If you've got the cash and the ego, then maybe a Maybach is right for you.

Go for… The 57S. Handles better, is faster and fractionally cheaper than the 62.

Avoid… Later models: you'll be hit less by the obscene depreciation.

Maybach 57 Saloon
  • 1. With 2.2 million different permutations of colour, trim and equipment available, if you own one there really is no other car like it
  • 2. Some models have been affected by electrical glitches
  • 3. The manufacturer's warranty lasts four years
  • 4. Choose early 57S models. Later ones depreciate even worse than early models
  • 5. 5.5-litre V12 engine is smooth and reliable
