2005 Maybach 57
As posh and quiet as the rear cabin is, the best seat in the house is--surprise--the one behind the wheel. The 57 uses a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-12 that delivers a thundering 550 horsepower and 663 lb-ft of torque. Plant the throttle, and the 7200-pound 57 will hammer from zero to 60 mph in a claimed 5.1 seconds. Throttle response is instantaneous--you'd never know this is a turbo. On the autobahn, even small breaks in traffic allowed us to rocket up to the electronically limited 155-mph top end. Huge Brembo disc brakes quickly erased that speed when cars darted into our path. And the electronically controlled Airmatic suspension provided a magical blend of ride comfort and handling responsiveness.
She has always been meticulously maintained by her ONE owner, and is showroom new, and comes with all the owner's manuals, book, keys, remotes, headphones, champagne flutes and ever the original window sticker.
