Question Opinion on 2019 Maybach? Worth the money?

A couple small changes in the facelift. Extremely luxurious and comfortable vehicle. Still goes from 0-100km/h in 4.7s! Would you buy this car if you had the money or rather a normal s-class?

Several years ago, I worked for a very wealthy man who had inherited a huge family fortune from his grandparents and passed down to his parents. He had several homes in multiple locations around the US as well as other locations abroad.

I can remember one instance when he decided to buy a top of the line BMW 7 series after previously buying a M-B S series for his wife. Both of these sedans were state of the art at the time, and both were a pleasure to drive. He kept the BMW for a little over a year before seeking out a Maybach which he was specifically measured and fitted for, and although I had left his employ by the time the Maybach was delivered, the car was quite a piece of automobile.

This gentleman could buy anything at anytime he wanted i.e.:homes, private jets, yachts, cars, etc., and they were all just things for him to use and enjoy.

If you have to ask if a Maybach is worth the money, IMO, you should probably reassess you financial situation!

Will depreciate like crazy and cost a fortune in upkeep but a superb car. I would, if / when Bill Gates declares me to be his secret lovechild and leaves me all his money, buy the Maybach over the AMG S class, but the head says regular S550.

Maybachs are like Rolls and Bentleys. They are made for those with tons of disposable income. Obviously not for the run of the mill Benz owners.

I have mixed feelings about this particular model. Basically, it has Maybach-like features (some of which is over the proverbial top,) yet it is also an S class. They are certainly not cheap and likely only Mercedes can pull off an over $100k stretch between the high/low range of the same model! My estimation of this vehicle? They are well built and filled to the brim with the sort of technologies you are not likely to find in another brand; at least not for some years. (I wouldn't mind a "Final Edition," S65, though I digress...) The price is insanely high, but hey, it also competes with Rollers and Bentleys and they broke the 200k barrier decades ago...

This will come as a big surprise, but my scholarship as a graduate teaching assistant does not include the funds for the purchase of a new Merc Maybach... (I know, right?! What is the world coming to...) Yet, 20 years from now, if I am still alive and well, and kicking,(knock on wood,) and there are still gasoline vehicles on the road, I might actually end up with one of these things. My current daily, a 1995 S500 Coupe, which is in great condition was once a $100k car, yet I traded an African lion for it, (not a joke!) It is still a lot of car despite its age and I enjoy driving it very much. It has an awesome sound system (apparently designed and set-up specifically for this model,) and the only downside (aside from some synchronization issues resulting from a long-time dead battery while being stored,) is that it no longer has its refrigerator! (Yes, one has to make do with such deficiencies...) Ha!

So, yes... I may or may not end up with one of these things (and who knows what host of issues such an uber-complicated high technology test-bed vehicle will develop in the coming years, decades!) I can predict that owning such a beast now is likely to require much maintenance and well, this is certainly not a car for those faint at heart!

As for my x-mass wish list: I wouldn't mind stumbling on a well preserved (and cheap priced) Maybach 57 or 62 sedan... (Another thing the Merc Maybach has with the short-lived Maybach resurrection is their meteoric depreciation!) While I no longer have an African lion to trade, I do have a six feet tall "happy" Buddha! (Think of all the karma?!)

The only time I'm ever likely to be in a Rolls or a Bentley or a Maybach is inside a pine box with fake brass handles on the way to the crematorium, so it's all moot to me :-)
