Throughout the world, Germans are known for two things: beer and cars. A sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz, Maybach personifies the true spirit of this automotive frenzy nation. Today, even though it breathes through Mercedes Benz, it’s still known to have one of the highest standards in car design, performance, and aesthetics.
It all began in 1909 when Wilhelm Maybach started his own company along with his son. Wilhelm Maybach was earlier the technical director for Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft. At the time of its establishment, he named his company, Luftfahrzeug Motorenbau GmbH. At first, the company built aircraft engines and later on they shifted to manufacturing diesel and petrol engines followed by the production of rail cars.
The beginning of Maybach's car production is traced to 1919 when the Maybach Motorenbau GmbH (the name was changed later), produced its first car. What started as an experiment turned out to be a huge success and Maybach rolled out a number of lux cars in the next 20 years.
During the second world war, Maybach designed and developed engines for Nazi German tanks, which were dreaded all around. They also aborted the development of cars for the next 2 decades and were focussed on the repair work of tanks.
Following 1960 the company name was again changed to MTU Friedrichshafen, but not long after, Daimler-Benz bought the company. This was a sort of revival of the Maybach brand under the ambit of Mercedes. The best part was that all the model Mercedes Maybach models were hand-built.
Following these years, the name Maybach was also connected with Rolls Royce. This gave the brand another level of recognition and exposure in the development of luxury cars all throughout.
Come 1997, the real work was presented when Daimler showcased a lux concept car at the Tokyo Motor Show of 1997. The concept was realized and out came Maybach 57 and Maybach 62. The year 2005 brought Maybach 57S which had a 6.0L V12 bi-turbo engine, to begin with.
The following years were filled with unexpected results as Maybach did not get the response it was looking for from the market. Opposed to the target of 2000 sales only 157 Maybachs were sold in the market, at the same time 2711 Rolls Royce were running on the roads that year. There were some announcements to cease its operations, but in 2015, Daimler announced reprieval with Mercedes-Maybach S600 at the LA car show.
