If you absolutely must buy a Maybach, this is the one to have. The whole idea of the car is to be ostentatious and obnoxious, and this is always much easier achieve in a vehicle with a long wheel base. Spectacularly comfortable as it is, there is something off about the Maybach. It seems to lack even the air of sophistication found in the Mercedes S-Class, the car it is based on. The new-money stigma which has been attached to the car is, at this point, probably impossible for the Maybach to ever live down, and the truly sophisticated are still buying Rolls-Royces.
