    Jalopnik: Maybach will soon be kaput



    Maybach will soon be kaput!

    By Mike Spinelli Nov 25, 2011 3:30 PM

    There's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall, and the bells in the steeple too... Daimler AG is killing the ultra-pricy Maybach brand effective in 2013, the Wall Street Journal reports today. Something, something, something, something, oooo.

    Daimler Chief Executive, Dieter Zetsche reportedly confirmed the kill-switch plan in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung to be published tomorrow. Instead, the company will expand the Mercedes-Benz S-Class line. That makes sense, considering hardly anyone could tell the difference between the cars, anyway.

    I wonder how much money was wasted on this venture? Probably at least as much as was sunk into the Chrysler debacle. Not to mention Mitsubishi.


    If Mercedes absolutely must have a super-high end brand, maybe BMW will sell Rolls Royce.
