As an avid admirer of the 140-body, I've toyed with the idea of finding a 240-body to compare and contrast what the 2nd generation of the 'World's Best Car' is like.

Delivery is expected this week from California, via enclosed carrier. A 1-owner vehicle with just 22,000 miles.

Can anyone give me a preview of coming attractions? Anyone out there with one that can share their Maybach 62 experience?

Thank you!

These are very special cars. Wishing you the best of luck with it and many happy years of motoring. A friend of mine who is also a former forum member on here had a Maybach 57S. I drove it and it is just a unreal experience. Looking forward to seeing more pics.

Wonderful!

Fun fact: The alternator is made in Luxembourg. Not so fun fact: They were $12,000. Luckily they are NLA so used is the best bet if you end up needing one. (They do fail more than normal.)

It's because they were water cooled alternators

I think someone was able to remove the alternator from the water cooling casing and found a cheap substitute
