I doubt it would be fastest... The M5 or even the AMG S65 probably would be faster. That's a lot of weight to haul.

You actually loose money if you buy a Merc Maybach and Roll-Royce Phaeton. Bentley are doing a 1000bhp sedan. Expect to come out in 2006 I think.

I adore the Kia Optima chrome grille. Does anyone know if the Maybach has met its sales goals? I know that Rolls has not. Bentley will continue to sell at a high rate when the sedan is finally available at the retailers. I cannot afford cars in this range, but I think that if I could, the MB S65 AMG would be tough to beat and compared to the Maybach it's far nicer looking, and comparatively speaking, dirt cheap.

I think he means making the Maybach a driver's car when the owner uses the back seat. :) Well - most do.

Besides the Maybach is pig ugly, expensive and heavy, an S class like that will be a flop when competitors like Audi are making lighter cars

I have to say this car is well and truly amazing in real life.<p>Got a chance to look around it (and sit in it :D) at Geneva, and its a lot nicer than the 'standard' 57. <p>The exterior paint colour is meant to be special, but it just looked like a non-metallic black to me. The rims look even better in real life, and the carbon-fibre interior was so different, but really works when put next to the white interior.
