Some Set of Wheels.

Maybach logo.jpgLast night as I was driving home in the Big, Fat, Black, Capitalist Car, I found myself behind a beautiful, big, fat capitalist car, the make of which I was unable to identify. It sported curtains on the inside of the rear window that could be pulled together for passenger privacy. I could also see that it was two-toned, silver and blue. I got close enough to see the logo (see above image), but I didn’t recognize the logo either.

The car pulled into the right lane, which enabled me to pass it and get a side view. It was truly a magnificent looking sleek, big, fat, capitalist car with elegant lines. The logo also appeared as a hood ornament.

Later, I searched Google for automobile logos, and I learned that the logo belongs to Maybach (the double M’s originally stood for Maybach Motors).

Turns out that Maybach cars, manufactured in Germany, are the Mercedes Luxury Cars. The car has a twelve cylinder engine that produces 550 horsepower. Its interior contains any one of three varieties of real wood.

The buyer of a Maybach has “two million design options”, which essentially renders each Maybach automobile custom made. That is why the company manufactures only four to five cars per day and no more than 1,000 cars per year. Maybach refers to its dealerships as “salons”.

Here are numerous pictures of the exterior of the two models (I saw the big one on the road).

Here are pictures of the interior, including the reclining rear seats.

You might be asking, ‘Yo, Jimbo. What would one of these Maybachs set you back?”

I was wondering that myself, and I learned that the suggested manufacturer’s retail price is a mere $382,500. I guess that’s before you start adding on options such as dual televisions, computers, refrigerator and who knows what else.

I guess that if you can pay almost $400K for a car, it doesn’t matter that it gets 12 miles per gallon.

If I ever get around to winning the lottery, I’m buying one. I figure it would look great with my hair.


  1. Fridge? recliner? I could LIVE in the damned thing. It’s bigger than my apartment.

  3. It would go great with the hair! Didn’t realize that they were still extant, but knew them from some truly great “classic” cars. Agree that if I win the lottery, I would look at getting one as I think I just had a cargasm.

  4. THANK YOU!!!! I saw one of those when I was living in the Chicago burbs. I was thinking ultra Mercedes when I saw it but the logo certainly isn’t the well known Mercedes brand. I KNEW it was an expensive car – but the only identifying feature was the logo – it has no other markings.

    Obviously where I went searching for the logo I couldn’t find the thing and so I despaired. I’m not an artist – nor do I have artistic software, so I couldn’t recreate it to put on my blog and ask the world. All I had to do was wait and let you find it for me. When the logo popped up as the page was loading – I thought – OMG, there it is!

    Quite the impressive car just watching it drive past isn’t it! Very sleek, simply oozing money, but not ostentatious. And even though I have yet to see your farookin’ great hair, I just know they would go together beautifully. *grin*

  5. Well damn son. Maybe you can even get your farookin’ hair done at the salon while they’re lightenin’ your lottery winnin’ load. Hell, while you’re in there, just get ’em to chrome your dome. Can’t be but ’bout another half mil or so… Hell, on second thought, get it gold plated. Chrome might be mistaken for grey…

  6. ‘Neck,
    Chrome (or gold) plate this magnificent mane? Surely you jest.

  7. That is one honkin’ gorgeous car.

    Hell, with a car like that, you don’t even need farookin’ beautiful hair. You can be bald as a billiard cue, have a small or non-existent penis, and you’ll still get all the bims.

    I’m gonna save my nickels and dimes. I figure I’ll be able to buy one of those babies by the time June, 2043 rolls around.

  8. Hi Jimbo,

    Looking at the “base price” of that beast reminds me of the Commodore when asked how much his yacht cost:

    “If you have to ask ‘how much’, you can’t afford it.”

    That being said…. I want one or two!
