Maybach: Move over Bentley, the King of Prestige Cometh

You say you’ve got an extra $300-grand lying around that you don’t know what to do with? Why not give the good folks at Maybach a call, and ask them to assign a PLM (Personal Liaison Manager) to you? That’s exactly what happens when you decide to take the plunge and purchase what is perhaps to be the most exclusive automobile in the history of mankind.

The first thing that your PLM will help you with is your decision between the Maybach 57 and the Maybach 62 model. The difference between the two is substantial – the smaller 57 (18.3 feet) is meant to be owner driven, while the 62 (20 feet) is meant to be chauffeur driven. After you’ve decided whether or not you want to be bothered with the driving chores yourself, you will probably need to bring in your personal interior decorator, who will then work with your PLM to design the interior so that it will suit your very discerning tastes.

Your designer and PLM may decide to outfit your Maybach with remote controlled video screens and electronically dimmed privacy screens, DVD players, fax machines, laptops for you and your passengers, various leathers including grand Napa, supple Napa, Neubuk, and of course the obligatory cherry wood trims.

Unfortunately, you won’t have a say in the powertrain department – Maybach has you covered there with their twin turbocharged, 3-valve per cylinder, 550 horsepower V12 that also happens to develop an impressive 660 ft-lbs of torque at just 2300rpm. One might expect all of that power to make the Maybach a bit nose-heavy, but the super engineers from Sindelfingen have managed to keep the engine’s weight to just 595 pounds.

Order the Maybach 62, and you’ll be sitting in what is essentially a greenhouse on wheels with a large, comfy, reclining set of seats in the back. The 62 features a very cool optional electrotransparent cabin screen and electroluminescent glass roof – in other words, it’s like sitting in a glass bubble that can be dimmed to block the sunlight with the simple flick of a switch. Very cool.

With production of the Maybach limited to five hand-built units per day, total production numbers will be limited to approximately 1000 units annually. Rumor has it that a single buyer located in the Middle East has already purchased 25 units, and 400 Maybachs are destined for US soil already. No doubt that the Maybach will soon replace the Bentley and the Benz in all of the rap and hip-hop songs when status and wealth are required for chorus lines…but what rhymes with Maybach?

The Maybach doesn’t belong in any rap song as it wears a long gown of distinguished history. The very first Maybachs were produced in the late 1920’s and were named after Mercedes-Benz’s first designer, Wilhelm Maybach. The Maybach from eras past were equally as impressive as the 2003 Maybach. The Zeppelin DS 8 for example, featured a 7.9L V12 that generated 200 horsepower and propelled the Maybach to well over 100mph.

DaimlerChrysler unveiled the 2003 Maybach in quite a unique manner – after shipping the first Maybach to the US via boat, they packaged it in a glass case and flew it by helicopter to 55 Wall Street in Manhattan – otherwise known as home to the New York Stock Exchange building.

While we seriously doubt that we’ll have the opportunity to ever test drive one of these exquisite automobiles, Dave Schembri of Mercedes-Benz USA claims that there will be six demo units available for customers to schedule test drives. Supposedly, these demo models will be located in Chicago, Jacksonville (FL), Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Washington. He further states, “We will find a way to ship a car to wherever the customer is or wherever they want to do it.”

Now, where did I put the checkbook?

 

A Quick Note From Our Founder –

Over the past few years I’ve taken a very special interest in helping people reduce the amount of inflammation in their bodies. Please take a moment to read Thomas DeLauer’s incredible story and how he was able to completely rid his body of dangerous inflammation.

Thank you!

Proline Expert Thomas DeLauer’s 7-Day
Anti-Inflammatory Reboot

Inflammation is holding us back in so many ways, and no one is really explaining it to us. All we know is that it’s “bad,” but no one wants to tell us about how it’s keeping us from losing weight and how it’s making us feel like garbage. Mainly because the food lobbyists don’t want us to dip into their profits when we find out that inflammation is caused by most of the so-called healthy foods that we are eating now!

IMPORTANT: My results are not typical. As with any weight loss program, your results may vary greatly.

When I was 275lbs and struggling with my weight, the last thing that I thought about was inflammation causing my problems… I had always resorted to the basics… simple calories in vs. calories out to lose weight, BUT that was NOT the case here. There was something bigger at play because I was literally doing everything that I was ‘supposed’ to do.

Meanwhile, my wife was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease that effected her thyroid (hashimoto’s) and later, Lyme disease. It was the serendipitous timing of this that made me realize that inflammation might be playing a larger role then I had thought. I’m sure many of you have heard of these diseases, and the scary thing is that they can be affecting you and you might not even know it!

To make a very long story short, I began learning about inflammation, using my resources within the healthcare industry to dive into some heavy research on how inflammation works and how it could be holding my wife and I (and others) from living the lives that we wanted to live. Like so many others, it’s easy to not even realize you’re being held back.

I found that inflammation can cause all kinds of issues in the digestive tract making it so that you’re not absorbing nutrients. This was a HUGE step, because I WAS eating healthy, but I couldn’t lose weight at all! So when I realized that there were specific “health foods” that I was eating that were causing this to happen, it all made sense….

If you’re not absorbing nutrients, then you body goes into starvation mode and that means that you will store fat! It’s a simple survival mechanism! This was the code that needed to be cracked! I needed to find a way to reduce the activity of the COX-1 enzyme and the production of prostaglandins (a fancy way of saying ‘how inflammation is caused”)

But the difficulty was finding a way to rid my body of the inflammation so that I could begin absorbing nutrients again. And back then, this was a long drawn out process, simply because the science wasn’t really there at the time. Most of us don’t really have the time or the energy to devote to experimenting with different foods to find what works for them.

Well, I did reduce my inflammation, and I was able to get back on track and ultimately become on author on this very topic, but it took a lot of time.

So over the past six months, using my experiences and my research I have developed a way to reduce inflammation within the body and to help the body absorb nutrients again, all with a WHOLE FOODS approach. As someone that has been in the healthcare industry before, I wanted to make sure this was a down-to-earth way to reduce inflammation.

Anyhow, it has been awesome to see how many people have been having success and not just reducing inflammation, but truly losing weight and kick starting their new lives feeling utterly amazing!

I want to invite you to take a look at the full protocol and the actual program and steps that you need to take right here

Just seeing some of the pain being lifted from people and seeing them realize what had been causing them so much grief before…
