Maybach 62 S
The Maybach 62 S is primarily designed to be chauffeur-driven and meets the very highest of standards in terms of spaciousness, smoothness and comfort � for a truly relaxing ride � and dynamism for saving that most precious of commodities: time.
The new flagship model in the Maybach range is celebrating its world premiere at the "Auto China 2006" international motor show in Beijing in November � a move which expends its range of high-end luxury saloons.
The centre console is a prime example of great attention to detail: this innovative composition of piano lacquer and carbon elements lends another powerful and energetic highlight to the interior as a further visual emphasis of the car’s impressive performance potential.
A glance at the dimensions alone shows that the Maybach 62 S is in a class of its own when it comes to spaciousness: measuring 6165 mm long, 1980 mm wide and 1573 mm high, it gives passengers all the room they need to relax in comfort in the 2.68 metre long interior.

2007 Maybach 62S

Car & Driver News
As you might expect, the twenty-foot-long 62S boasts the same enhancements that turn the shorter (18.8-foot) 57 into the decidedly sportier 57S—most importantly, the 604-hp, 738-lb-ft, twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-12 found also found in all the Mercedes-Benz "65"-series AMG cars.
Such stability also ensures that every drop of Veuve Cliquot remains in its engraved sterling silver flutes, that is, presuming none spilled during launch (0 to 62 mph requires just 5.2 seconds).
