2002 MERCEDES BENZ MAYBACH
Four months after its comeback at the Geneva Motor Show, the luxury car brand Mercedes Maybach is presenting the exciting new high-end automobile to the public for the first time. Equipped with the automotive technology of the 21st Century, crafted in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and designed with scrupulous attention to detail, the new Mercedes Maybach reflects the expertise of DaimlerChrysler as the world's most innovative and tradition-steeped vehicle manufacturer while benefiting from the technical leadership, know-how and unique experience of its sister-brand Mercedes-Benz in the worldwide luxury car segment.
The Mercedes Maybach defines the standards at the very peak of the passenger car market, at the same time continuing the tradition of the legendary Maybach automobiles which were among the elite in German and international automotive engineering together with Mercedes-Benz during the 1920s and 1930s. Trailblazing innovations so far uniquely available in Mercedes-Benz vehicles have undergone further development for the Maybach and are included in the standard equipment: the electro-hydraulic braking system Sensotronic Brake Control (SBC?), the electronically controlled air suspension system AIRMATIC DC (Dual Control), LINGUATRONIC voice control, the operating and display system COMAND APS or the automatic emergency call system TELEAID.
These are complemented by further masterpieces of automotive engineering which were specifically developed for the Maybach and substantiate its claim to the high-end position in the luxury car segment: the most powerful, highest powerplant in the world, the Type 12 engine (with 405 kW/ 550 hp), innovative and comfortable fully-reclining seats in the rear, a 600 Watt sound system with Dolby surround sound on every seat and the highly efficient four-zone climate control system with two separate air conditioners.
