One Less Brand For The 1 Percent


Remember Maybach? You wouldn't be remiss for forgetting about Mercedes-Benz’s once-aspiring ultra-luxury brand, resurrected in 2003 to compete better with Rolls-Royce and Bentley. The last 2012 models had starting prices from $376,300 to $1,380,000.

Mercedes confirmed nearly a year ago that it would discontinue the brand sometime in 2013, but the Detroit News is now reporting that the rug has been pulled out from underneath Maybach a bit prematurely.

Mercedes' latest pricing list describes Maybach’s two models — the Type 57 and Type 62 — as being discontinued already. Only 99 Maybachs were sold in the U.S. last year, the Detroit News reports.

Dont worry, now there is Tesla Model S with lots of luxuries and a very high technology that no car with combustion engine can match.


1%? This is for the 0.1 %.
99-99.5% is really the upper middle class
