Which used Maybach 57 saloon should I buy?

The 57S is probably the best option, but whatever specification you choose, you can't get more unique than a used Maybach.

What Car? found a dark green 'standard' 57 with Maui Pearl exclusive leather replete with all manner of wonderful extras: a heated steering wheel, cooling box in rear armrest, rear door curtains, television, DVD, a surround-sound audio system, champagne flutes and silver goblets fixed in clamps.

The roof, made of photochromatic glass, could be frosted or completely opaque at the touch of a button. All this is on top of the more 'traditional' gizmos such as cruise control, electronic memory front seats, heated mirrors and sat-nav.

You also get a 6.0-litre V12 with 61bhp more than the standard 57, so you get to 60mph 0.2sec quicker. You can put the auto gearbox into manual mode and use one of two sport modes for the air suspension to keep body roll to minimum. Oh, and top speed is 171mph.
