It's the last year for this brand that is a division of Mercedes-Benz. As Lexus is to Toyota, Maybach is to Mercedes-Benz.

The 57 S is designed for an owner wishing to be chauffeured in a gas guzzler. Two reclining, overstuffed leather captain's chairs separated by a console with minirefrigerator provide the rear-seat, first-class accommodations. A full range of uber-luxurious features ensure total creature comfort.

Getting to 60 miles per hour from a standstill requires slightly more than five seconds, thanks to the 620-horsepower, 6-liter, turbocharged V-12 engine.
