According to an unnamed Maybach leader who shared with the site car and driverThe company is going to add new models to its lineup in two series called Myth and Legend. Production of these cars is confirmed to be limited (even unique). The price of this car, located on the current lineup of Maybach, is very expensive.
According to the leader of Mercedes-Benz Group, they want to turn this Maybach into a customized super luxury car brand. This approach is similar to Bentley’s Mulliner or Rolls-Royce’s coachbuilds. This is also the direction BMW is aiming for with its Alpina sub-brand.
In future coachbuild projects like Myth/Legend will have their own body frame and possibly their own independent chassis, as long as the customer account can afford it.
The ideas proposed by Maybach are quite diverse and can be expanded “infinitely” depending on the needs of the user. Some mentions include a 2+2 gullwing-door sports car like the famous 300SL (possibly with a convertible). There can also be a 4-door coupe with 4 seats without side pillars. Or a supercar with a modern design like the Vision One-Eleven Concept, which is a descendant of the Mercedes-AMG One supercar that uses F1 technology.
Not stopping only at sports cars, projects from other segments are also within reach such as a sports SUV based on the EQG platform, the coupéized G-Class with multi-function roof or the EQS wagon version…
After being acquired by Mercedes-Benz in 1960, Maybach didn’t really have much success with the German brand.
The brand was discontinued in 2012 before Mercedes-Benz changed its mind about reviving it in 2015. However, in recent times Maybach has made great progress in sales and profits due to the general market trend.
