"The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. "
W.B. Yeats- 1919
Just like the previous Maybachs, they will be "exclusive".
Anyway, it's nice to know the English understand how to distinguish luxury and premium.
Mercedes would be better off spending money on developing a Brand below Mercedes Benz. Like Smart or something. That is where money to fight people like Toyota, Volkswagen and GM will come from.

Pullman seems like a great idea to me, but I think Maybach is only really workable if they find a way to make it more unique in terms of powertrain and the cars will have to be segment leading. Otherwise, the brand recognition just isn't there to credibly compete with Rolls Royce and Bentley. Don't misunderstand as I'm actually bullish on the possibilities with regard to Maybach, I'm just not nearly so confident that the powers that be at Daimler AG can transform opportunity into success here.
I don't know that it's going to be any more successful than if they address the central issues with why the last Maybach failed. Everyone's talking about the looks, and that's true. Maybe it should've been like a modern 600 in styling, with a broad upright face the way, conveniently, the Mulsanne and Phantom have. And I've said it a billion times but they sooooooo should've made the Exelero Concept. THAT is what a Maybach should've been. Big. Fast. Looks ostentatious to the highest degree. Certainly the tech and such should be as good and modern as it can be.
There should also be a 3.0L turbodiesel option, but maybe that's just me.
