The Powertrain of the All-New Maybach - Comfort and Driving Performance on the Highest Level 2003-01-0597

One of the world's most noble and high quality automobile brands is being revived: Maybach
Aestetics, poise, perfection and technical brilliance founded the reputation of the magnificient Maybach sedans and convertibles, whose “Zeppelin” flagship, with a length of around 5.50 metres, was once the most prestigious German passenger car on the road - “an automobile which fulfills every last desire with refined elegance and power”, as the luxury automobile brand's brochure stated in 1934.
DaimlerChrysler now feels obliged to live up to these high standards. As cornerstones of this vehicle concept, focus was placed on the topics of design, comfort, spatial availability, safety, exclusiveness and extra-ordinary performance. A major role was given to the powertrain in order to meet outstanding driving comfort and agility.
