Walk-around and driving videos have been provided by the seller below.
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. With a healthy list of luxury features came a healthy price tag, and by the late 2000’s, Mercedes struggled to sell the Maybach which cost twice as much as the contemporary S600. The Maybach brand would later be brought back as a highly equipped S or GLS-Class and never again as a stand alone model. These mid 2000’s Maybachs are now gaining more interest due to their signature over-engineered nature and ignorance of cost which will likely never be seen again from Daimler-Benz in quite the same way.
