With many cars it’s the driving impression that counts; with the mighty Maybach limousine, it’s how best to pamper the rear seat passengers that has occupied the engineers’ minds.
Created by an exclusive sub-division of Mercedes-Benz, the Maybach was created for the chauffeur-driven market; not that the driving experience is in any way flawed or compromised – for such a large vehicle the Maybach is both swift and comparatively nimble – it’s simply that its focus is on the driven rather than the driver.
This beautiful example in Côte d’Azur Blue exemplifies the whole Maybach experience. Its entire interior is a calming sea of rich beige leather and deep, glossy burr walnut veneer: it’s as much gentleman’s club as it is car cabin. All the doors and the boot-lid feature power-latching, lest a slamming door ruin the tranquility of the cavernous passenger quarters.
There are but two seats in the rear of the Maybach, automotive armchairs, and in common with the front pair they feature heating, ventilation and massaging functions. But unlike the seats in the front, the rears can be electronically extended to become almost as long as a bed. Whilst comfortably sprawling on these leather-lined loungers, the passengers enjoy autonomous operation of the climate control and sound system, and thanks to duplicate instruments in the back can keep an eye on how the chauffeur is conducting his carriage. There’s also a fridge in the rear for chilled en-route refreshment, and curtains to curtail the outside world from looking in.
What passengers will be less aware of but will certainly reap the benefits of, is the Maybach’s advanced electronically controlled suspension with its active damping control and self-levelling, all the better for keeping the ride smooth and even.
Reassuringly expensive when new and now refreshingly affordable with a very modest mileage on the clock, this exquisitely maintained Maybach 62 is one of those rarest of commodities – an absolute bargain.
