It’s often assumed the Maybach revival of the early 2000’s was built on the then-current S-Class chassis (W220) but there’s a very specific reason the chassis code for the Maybach was W240. When engineered, it was discovered the W220 platform wasn’t robust enough to carry the weight for the maybach and perform as intended so the older W140 chassis were modified and given a new life through the brand’s revival. While technology may have been somewhat interchangeable, the Maybach was rebuilt from the ground-up and featured all the usual accoutrements of the finest luxury automobiles from exclusive wood grains to hand stitched and brushed leathers. This exclusivity combined with timeless styling and hints of art-deco cues in the cabin made for a formidable land yacht and an instant future classic.
