The Maybach 57 comes in two trim levels: the 57 and the 57 S (reviewed separately). This luxury sedan can be customized to the buyer's specifications, so each vehicle reflects the owner's taste and preferences. Given the exclusivity of this brand, it is difficult to say that anything is "standard" about it; however, the Maybach 57 does include a remarkable list of features that are part of the base price. Among many other features, the 57 comes with a chrome grille, 19-inch alloy wheels, self-leveling suspension, xenon high-intensity headlights, cornering lights, a front-cabin sunroof, climate control, and two-person reclining rear seats. The owner of the 57 may choose certain options while customizing this luxury sedan, including an electric curtain that shields passengers from the sun and prying eyes, rear retractable tables, or a microphone to communicate with the world outside the car, without the inconvenience of rolling down the window.
Considering the astronomical price of this luxury sedan, it is no wonder that the 57 comes standard with a host of technological conveniences to make the ride that much more pleasant for its passengers. In addition to the Bose stereo system, the Maybach 57 includes a DVD player, satellite radio, multi-CD changer, and speed-sensitive volume control. The rear passengers can also pair their mobile phones to the Bluetooth system and leave their hands free for sipping champagne from the sterling silver champagne flutes, which come standard with the 57.
Perhaps the most distinctive aspect of the Maybach 57 is its striking appearance. This car will turn many heads and leave people wondering what dignitary or rap star is behind the darkened windows. Between the 19-inch alloy wheels, the chrome grille, and the Maybach insignia, this sedan really shines. Prospective owners have an array of exterior and interior colors to choose from, and may even choose a two-tone color scheme for the exterior. The interior is made from supple leather and exotic wood, and offers heated, massaging seats up front and heated, reclining seats in the rear of the 57. Of course, some prospective buyers may consider the Maybach garish and may appeal only to those looking to show off their newly acquired wealth.
