Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Maybach 57 saloon?
It's hard to fault the hand-built quality of a Maybach and it's hardly likely that you'll see one for sale in the local ads. Dealerships have close contact with their owners, so they'll have a good idea where the car has been and what's gone wrong, if anything.
These are carefully crafted cars, built with love and affection, so buyers should expect trouble-free motoring. Mechanically, these cars are sound, but some models have been plagued by electrical glitches.
You'll need to be mixing in the right circles to find a used Maybach to suit your needs. Only around 1000 cars are expected to be sold worldwide every year in the 57 and the longer-wheelbase 62. It is estimated that, with all the different specifications available, it would take 4400 years of production before two identical Maybachs were produced. The manufacturer's warranty lasts four years.
