A Smaller Maybach or a Bigger Benz?

If you were Mercedes-Benz and you wanted to attack the $150,000 to $200,000 market, would you build a more luxe S-Class, or a smaller Maybach? According to Richard Yarrow of The Car Connection, DaimlerChrysler's Dr. Z-is-for-Zetsche says he feels no pressure to make that decision anytime soon. If you'll recall, Rolls-Royce recently confirmed it was heading slightly downmarket from the Phantom, to produce a new line of sedans to rival the Bentley Arnage. Mercedes has considerable space between the top S-Class and bottom Maybach to slot in a new line. What say you? Benz or 'Bach? Operators are standing by.
