2004 Maybach Covers One Million Miles and Then Some


Odometer stopped at 999,999 miles in 2009, but this German limo just keeps rolling.

Liechtenstein businessman Josef Weikinger bought his Maybach62 back in April 2004 – when it was one of the finest cars onthe market and gave Rolls Royce a run for its money. The now-defunct model, which is to be replaced by high-end variants of the Mercedes-Benz S Class, was purchased by Weikinger and used extensively untilAugust 2013. So extensively, in fact, that the car’s logbooks detail many harddriving days with a total mileage of over 2,500km on some.

Weikinger drove the car (yes - he mostly drove himself) somuch and so far, that he eventually ran out the odometer’s 999,999 miles back in Septemberof 2009. The Maybach’s original twin-turbo V-12 engine, however, didn't make it that far:it was replaced at (a still impressive) 600,000 miles, followed by a newtransmission and front shocks two months later. Weikinger traded in (and down,perhaps?) his 62 for a BMW 760Li in August 2013, but the Maybach is still beingdriven by its current owner.
