Maybach 62 S Zeppelin

Luxury. Loads of it. The "regular" Maybachs in no way lack luxury, but the Zeppelin special edition surpasses them. Only 100 will be built. This may be the ultimate car to be a passenger in.

Displacement: 5,980 cc
Aspiration: Twin turbo
Power: 640 bhp (477 kW) @ 4,800 rpm
Torque: 738 lbft @ 2,000 rpm
Configuration: Front-engined, rear-wheel drive
Weight: 2,855 kilo (6,294.2 lb)
0 - 60 mph: ~5.0 seconds
Top speed: ~155.25 mph (~250 km/h)

I cannot see the point. If you wanted to travel in ultimate luxury and you could afford such a monstrosity as that Maybach, whats wrong with your private jet or even your helicopter?

Uncool and completely pointless

Gaz, I dont think you can take a helicopter into cities, have you been at the drugs again? Unless you was going to enter the shops SAS style.

Or are we getting subtle clues as to what your next car is?

uncool unless you think paying 8 X over the odds for a re-badged AMG S Class is cool

Followed one of these in France, it couldn't cope with the Mistral it was all over 2 lanes worse coping with sidewinds than the high sided vehicles

A seriously uncool style free zone which challenges the boundaries of good taste.

Really?

I think you could land a helicopter on many roof tops in most major cities, or very close to the centre of many others (and take a rented limo in). In response to your jib at Gaz, there are a good few city centres the Maybach couldn't negotiate - especially the older ones with really narrow streets.

I would rather have the maserati quattroporte and drive myself than be seen in my coffin in any Maybach.

Mind you, would you have the Reg LZ 129?
