Mercedes-Benz Officially Discontinues the Maybach
text size: A- A+
It was supposed to go out of production in 2011, but they strangely kept making them and now they have a few left which they are selling at a $100,000 (€81,000) discount. They didn’t even issue a press release to announce the news, opting instead to have ‘Discontinued’ next to all five models in the pricing list. However, this means that the cars that the cars which they have left, will sell rather quickly, thanks to the discount.
Nobody will really miss the Maybach, because of the very few people who could afford one, even fewer actually considered buying one and a smaller percentage of those people actually went on to spend their money. Still, it would have been nice to see the result of the proposed Meredes-Aston Martin partnership which was supposed to give Maybach a new lease of life, but fell through due to cost issues.
