While I’m sitting in the back seat, running my bare feet along the inches-thick carpeted floor mats, trolling Craigslist for a chauffeur that owns the very specific orange plaid tux I demand, I’ve got time for questions.…
Heads of State, dictators, kingpins, and mafioso, Mercedes has given you the greatest gift of all. Twenty-one-and-a-half feet of hyper-extended Maybach excess packed so full of luxurious decadence it should have a dedicated harem compartment next to the nose candy dispenser. This is Pullman.
Crazy Wilhem is having a Back-In-Business Blowout! Yes, Maybach is back (sort of) and they've announced pricing: $166,676 (€134,100). That's a steal compared to the previous incarnation of the Maybach, which started around $381,342 (well, $344,000 in 2009 dollars). Holy crap! At these prices, you lose money not buying…

Maybach may be dead, but its spirit will live on as a range-topping S-Class variant that's reportedly set to debut at the LA Auto Show. And Mercedes' head of global design says it's got the swagger to take on Bentley and Roll-Royce.

Word on the street is that Mercedes is about to release two new versions of its top-of-the-line S-class, both a Maybach, and a Pullman. And when you buy a new super-ultra-luxo-barge for the first time, I know you all have one question. What's its time around the Nürburgring?
According to a report from Bloomberg, Mercedes-Benz plans to release an embiggened version of it's flagship S-Class, and it might be called Maybach. Mercedes will also release a Pullman edition of the S-Class which will be a whopping 21 feet long.
We said goodbye to Daimler's ultra-luxury Rolls-Royce and Bentley competitor, Maybach, way back in 2011. That was mostly because nobody outside the rap and the Russian gas games wanted one, for various reasons, including that they looked a bit too much like a Mercedes.
