This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

It's no Galaxie 500, but we'd imagine Spanish crown royal Juan Carlos I is smilin' to himself and laughin' out loud nonetheless, having received a sporty, new 612 hp Maybach 57S (the driver's Maybach), delivered in person by DaimlerChrysler CEO, Dieter Zetsche. The King — a direct descendant of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V — received the custom 'Bach, which was fitted with enough sterling-silver interior accents to shame Queen Anne's tea set — at the Laureus World Sports Awards in Barcelona. No word on whether cheese and onions were served.
