With characteristic German precision, the Maybach 62 S is expertly engineered on the Mercedes S-class platform.
Because the center of gravity is a little lower than in the 62, it's sportier and easier to handle.
The biturbo V12 engine makes the 62 S a dynamic sedan, able to achieve impressively high speeds.
Maybach's attention to detail means a remarkably comfortable ride with many technologically advanced features.
Because it's built on the Mercedes S-class chassis, the 62 S lacks a distinct character.
At over 6,000 pounds, the Maybach 62 S is a heavy car and makes quick handling very difficult, particularly at higher speeds.
The Maybach gets an average of 12 MPG, making it one of the least fuel-efficient cars on the market.
By 2013, Daimler will discontinue the Maybach automotive line.
