MALIBU, Calif., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The editors of luxury lifestyle
authority Robb Report today announced the selection of the opulently appointed
Maybach 62 as the consummate automotive gift for the upcoming holiday season.
Accordingly, Daimler-Chrysler's new "super luxury sedan," which is priced at
approximately $350,000, will adorn the cover of Robb Report's 19th annual
"Ultimate Gift Guide."
Scheduled to reach newsstands on November 21, "Ultimate Gift Guide"
answers the question of what to give when cost is no object. This eagerly
awaited special issue offers 21 items developed exclusively for Robb Report
readers. Representing a total value of more than $200 million, these gifts
include an $80 million luxury submarine and Formula 1 Champion Michael
Schumacher's Ferrari F1-2000 race car (valued at $1.6 million), as well as
specially designed international excursions.
One of the most extraordinary luxury sedans ever built, Maybach earned
international acclaim for its exceptional styling and luxurious accommodations
during its prominence in the 1920's and 30's.
Named for its length of 6.2 meters, the Maybach 62 is powered by a
5.5-liter, 550-hp, V-12 engine which generates a zero-to-62 mph speed of
5.4 seconds. This exceptional performance is matched by distinctive styling
that melds historic lines with contemporary elegance. Boasting interior
roominess rivaling that of first-class air travel, the Maybach 62 is equipped
with an unparalleled list of appointments.
"Given the significance of Maybach's return and the impact that it is
making in the luxury automotive industry, it is ideally suited as our ultimate
holiday gift," explained Brett Anderson, Robb Report's Senior Vice President,
"We are extremely pleased that Robb Report has bestowed this special
accolade on the new Maybach. This distinction as the ultimate gift is a
fitting symbol for the upcoming launch of our new super-luxury sedan, not to
mention the rebirth of the legendary Maybach brand," said Wayne Killen, brand
manager for the Maybach.
