    I guess you pay for the name, definitely not looks. Kind of looks like a Chinese ripoff of a Mercedes. No matter, it is a bit out of my price range anyways.

    The cars are impressive in person. I've only driven the 57.
    I like the updates, but that rear is very Mercedes 1995.
    What were they thinking????

    The one car Maybach needs to produce is the Excelero.
    Why this isn't in production is beyond me. This would KILL the Brooklands Coupe!!

    It does look like a ripoff of a Merc. I've never been a fan of the two-tone thing that they have got going on.

    It's nice to see that merc is finally doing SOMETHING about maybachs outdated styling but it would have been more beneficial if the rear got updated too because it does look very dated or even better put the 52 and 62 on an all new platform

    This vehicle, IMO, is not worth the money and even the face lifted version looks odd and dated.

    What did they actually change in the rear? Regardless, the vehicle looks awful, and now started to look very old. Definitely not timeless styling, even the Panzerwagen-look on the Rolls looks timeless compared to that.

    Doesn't even look all that different. The guy down the street has one and every time, I wonder why he bought it.

    Re: Spy shots of facelifted Maybach 62.

    About 3 years ago I actually got to ride inside, I believe it was the 62 limousine. It was a bit over the top, IMO, preferred is the DTS L or limousine any day!

    Perhaps someday I may have to consider this type of vehicle when driving is no an option --decades from now, but perhaps by then Lexus or Cadillac might offer something a bit more understated for my tastes.

    I like the rear view alot and the two tone paint, but I don't see much actual change.

    Me neither, it looks to much like an S-class to be $300,000+ .
