The Maybach 57 – The Car Defining Luxury
The Maybach 57 can be listed as one of the world's best luxurious cars. But if you pay £300k, you could possibly buy two S63 AMGs and have some funds left! There are luxury car makers. But Maybach who is the Mercedes-Benz offshoot has s different philosophy. If you closely observe the way it is offering luxury it has Rolls-Royce firmly in its sights.
At the 2005 Geneva Motor Show, Daimler revealed few secrets about Maybach 57 S. The letter S in the name stands for "special." It has a 6.0 L version of V12 engine which is manufactured by the master i.e. Mercedes-AMG. The power output of the engine transmission is 450 kilowatts with 611.8 PS and 603.5 hp as well as 738 lb·ft (1,001 N·m).

The in-public announcement was done at the Los Angeles Auto Show in January 2006 for The North America.
The 57, which is taken from it 5.73m length is the popular Maybach model of all. It’s one of the world’s highly luxurious cars. In fact, what can match it for luxury is Rolls-Royce Phantom.
