Maybach 62S Landaulet

Actually, “occasion” sounds a bit disrespectful for a car of this stature. Mercedes-Benz revived the prewar Maybach luxury brand in 2000 with the introduction of the 57 and 62. With those cars, Maybach aimed directly at the Rolls-Royce Phantom. The 57 was designed more for self-driving, while the longer 62 was meant to be driven around in. Unfortunately, Maybach perished as a stand-alone brand in 2012. Money was leaking out on all sides and that was the reason for Mercedes-Benz to continue the Maybach name as a label for the extra luxury Mercedes cars.

In 2008 – four years before the plug was pulled from Maybach – the brand released its absolute top-of-the-line model: the 62S Landaulet. The distinction from the normal 62 cannot be overlooked: the rear part of the roof is fabric and can be opened electrically to let the rear passengers enjoy the sun. The driver does not have that option, because up to the B-pillar, the 62S Landaulet is identical to the regular 62.

The chances of encountering a 62S Landaulet in the wild are virtually nil. In fact, Maybach built only 21 Landaulets. New, these had a price tag of over €900,000. Under the hood of the Maybach 62S Landaulet is a 612-horsepower biturbo V12, but that will mainly be enjoyed by the driver. In this car, you just have to sit in the back. In fact, there you can fully recline your chair and enjoy a glass of champagne while the sun shines down on you. Wonderful right?

The German company Mechatronik is offering for sale the Maybach 62S Landaulet pictured. The car is painted in white and has a beige interior with carbon fiber trim. Everything still looks as good as new. Therefore, the virgin mileage of only 1,900 kilometers hardly comes as a surprise. If you want to take it over, you just have to bring a big bag of money. In fact, Mechatronik is asking a whopping €2,320,500 for this collector’s piece! Costs a bit, but then you have something.
