Maybach is poised to facelift its line-up, according to reports.

Design images of what are reported to be the facelifted car have leaked on to the internet, with reports suggesting it could be launched at the Beijing motor show in April.

Changes are said to be cosmetic, and include an updated front bumper, new grille and bonnet design, and LED lights.

However, Merc boss Dieter Zetsche has yet to confirm that a next-generation car is being planned, adding to rumours that the brand is being axed.

"The contribution of Maybach is not significant or relevant but there are only two players in this market and we are one of them. But there are no plans in the long run," he told Autocar last December.

Even more vulgar than a RR Ghost. Proof that there is no correlation between wealth and taste!

The maybach is a wonderful car to be driven in but why would anyone take one over a phantom?

Or a LWB S-Class for that matter?

16 March 2010

Too little too late.

The S-class is already a fantastic car for much less money.

It is interesting that you endorse the fact that the NHS cosmetic reconstruction left your wife looking fantastic in a bikini, but are critical of those who have a problem with the way that they look notwithstanding that they haven't been disfigured by cancer.The mental issues are largely similar

Just wanted to thank you for such a great concert at The King Center! I had told my husband that the only way i would go to a show on a week night is if Wilson Phillips was playing.He bought front row seats for us....and it was truly a night i will never forget. Thanks, Sandy

This helps, to a degree, but it would be Niev
