    Well, seeing as Mercedes were hoping to sell 1000 Maybachs per annum and seem unlikely to sell much more than 300 in 2006...I think it's safe to say that sales have been disappointing.

    The S model is a limited run.

    Who knows how many Maybachs are here in California?

    My local car dealers are filled with exotics, bunch of AMGs, some RR Phantoms, some Ferraris, a SLR, bunch of Porsches, blah blah blah............

    The only thing I can't believe is that I saw the same Maybach 62 on separate days, same color combo, same ol' driver.

    I know of at least 3 Maybachs in Poland.
    One has recently been bought by a member of parliament. About a week after that he got expelled from his party for "showing off and improper behaviour".
    Another belongs to an owner of soft drinks factory. Though I'm not sure if he still owns it. Last year he had serious financial problems, so maybe he sold the car.
    I don't know who owns the third car.
    There are also rumours of another Maybach, but noone confirmed seeing it actually. The owner is supposed to be a certain priest - director of a radio station and religious leader of all the catholic extremists in Poland.

    It's not denial. I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

    In 1999 my then girlfriend and I were playing charades with some friends, and I had to mime the song "Horny." At the end, my team won, and my girlfriend conceded "OK Horny Alex, you won," hence "hornyalex1."

    Of course people realise it's just a tarted up C-class and instead bought a C200 diesel, which if you come to think of it, it makes a lot more sense...

    There are at least 20 in Los Angeles, maybe 100, maybe more. However, I see a lot more RR Phantoms on the street.

    If by tarted up you mean given an entirely different engine, a chassis longer wider and stronger than the C-class, more luxury, higher quality materials and absolutly packed with technology. All of this and you can have your interior customised and custom coloured how you want.

    Makes the C-class look like a 2CV in comparison.

    That's between the 62 and 57 Maybach models though.
    All the 57S models were bought before 3/4 of them were built.

    In charisma it scores no better than the C-class in my opinion...

    On the outside the C-class looks much nicer. Not so over the top. On the inside though. I would love if my lounge room was fitted with as much luxury as that car. So I don't see how you can compare a Maybach (nearly $1,000,000) and a C-class (beteen $54,000 - $160,000).

    Does anyone actually own one in Australia though? I have no idea.
