The luxurious Maybach 62 was a high-performance sedan created by Mercedes- Benz for the privileged few who desired the most powerful and opulently appointed means of conveyance and had the means to pay for it. It was nearly identical to the Maybach 57, but its 17.2" longer wheelbase provided cavernous interior space for rear passengers. With a 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 engine rated at 543 hp and 664 lb./ft. of torque, a weekend jaunt from Munich to Saint-Tropez could be expedited in private, quiet, reclined comfort.
Until 2019, this elegant sedan remained with its original owner, a real estate executive who used it sparingly, accumulating less than 15,000 miles since new. Finished splendidly in Caspian Black with Maui Pearl Nappa leather, the original cost of such luxury was $409,000; however, a number of factory options added to the price of this Maybach, including the partition wall with Intercom package for over $30,000, as well as the glass sunroof with solar panel package for $15,000. Additionally, this Maybach is optioned with rear window curtains; heated, active, ventilated front seats; and active, ventilated rear seats, bringing the total price listed on the window sticker to a not insignificant $463,280. This remarkable automobile is one of just 66 Maybachs imported to the US for the 2009 model year, and possessed nearly every luxury amenity imaginable when constructed. From any seat, this long-wheelbase, high-speed touring machine is an absolute delight to experience.
