 The resurrection of the Maybach name was long awaited, and Mercedes-Benz last proper limousine, the 600, went out of production in 1981. They presented a concept car at the 1997 Tokyo Motor Show and a production model based on it was introduced in two sizes in 2004, the Maybach 57 and the Maybach 62, reflecting the lengths of the cars in decimetres. The Maybach 62 S, the S stood for special, was specifically designed to transport captains of industry, world leaders, and the odd celebrity in total luxury, whilst also performing well at speed. In fact the three tonne, 6.2-metre long car could go from zero to 60mph in some 5.2 seconds, powered by the twin-turbo 6-litre V12.The 62 S was launched at the cusp of the global recession and demand was limited, especially at the base price of £340,000, some £50,000 more than its direct competitor, the Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB and with fewer sales than expected, Mercedes-Benz ended production of all models in 2012. The Maybach makes even the ultra-exclusive Phantom seem mass-produced in comparison and its discreet styling and sleek lines were more akin to a corporate jet rather than the Hercules transport feel of the Phantom. Certainly, the lavishly appointed interior offers more luxury than its rival with its reclining seats and privacy thanks to the opaque glass division.Registered on the 16th December 2008 to the first of four owners, our vendor, a successful fashion retailer, bought the car in 2017 but didn't really consider the car's length and how difficult it would be to manoeuvre easily into or out of his driveway. Consequently, only some 1,000 miles have been travelled since 2017, and much to the relief of his chauffeur, the car is now presented to auction, the first time the model has been offered by a UK auction house.The car's odometer reading is some 71,000 miles, with the bulk of the mileage accrued earlier in its life. Fastidiously maintained, the car has been serviced at the following intervals:14/09/2009 at 9,778 miles by the Maybach Centre of Excellence, Mercedes-Benz Brooklands, Surrey14/04/2010 at 19,206 miles by the Maybach Centre of Excellence, Mercedes-Benz Brooklands, Surrey07/01/2011 at 28,205 miles by the Maybach Centre of Excellence, Mercedes-Benz Brooklands, Surrey16/09/2011 at 40,085 miles by the Maybach Centre of Excellence, Mercedes-Benz Brooklands, Surrey15/03/2012 at 50,923 miles by the Maybach Centre of Excellence, Mercedes-Benz Brooklands, Surrey14/02/2013 at 58,978 miles by the Maybach Centre of Excellence, Mercedes-Benz Brooklands, Surrey18/03/2014 at 61,443 miles by the Maybach Centre of Excellence, Mercedes-Benz Brooklands, Surrey04/01/2016 at 67,667 miles by the Maybach Centre of Excellence, Mercedes-Benz Brooklands, Surrey03/03/2017 at 68,946 miles by the Maybach Centre of Excellence, Mercedes-Benz Brooklands, SurreyWith its book packs, service book, and an MoT until May 2019, this remarkable vehicle offers some intriguing options for its new owner, either to use it as a rather lavish mobile office or press it into service for high-end limousine hire.Please note the car will be issued with an age-appropriate number plate by the DVLA.
