WTF Car? Awards: Maybach Landaulet

Posted by The Insider at 11:40 am on Friday January 23, 2009

Winner of the Money Can’t Buy You Taste Award…

Like all the air in a vacuum, the vulgarity available to car manufacturers had seemingly been consumed by the Maybach.

Vast, ugly, grotesquely expensive and appointed like a Saudi speakeasy without the towering Russian hookers (they’re still an option mind), it was the height of everything that’s wrong with money.

Until Mercedes came up with Maybach Landaulet.

This even-more-limited edition of the tacky tycoon’s limo de jour has a convertible roof for the passenger compartment but not for the driver, presumably so the staff know their place come rain or shine. As if to underline the point, the rear is done in white leather, while the chauffeur’s hole is all black.

A car with its very own caste system? Made by Germans? Stop there…

Agree with this? Wade in below. We’ll add up the total number of comments on each of the WTF Car? Award posts to work out the overall winner, so type carefully.

    how vulgar is this car let me count the ways

    come on the germans own rolls royce and are able to make art. However when they are allowed to roam free they bung as much stuff as they can into it. It is pathetic they should know after the first version tho go subtle, calm and beutiful but they don’t listen to critiscm so what hope is there for them. Maybe we need WW3 now so they will listen

    Oh. Dear. Again, it looks like a nasty product of a tasteless tuning company, but it was the main company themselves that did this! What on Earth is going on?!

    I hope pidgeons deface the passenger compartment of every one of these, however you pronounce its stupid, French-ish name.

    Bad Mercedes! BAD!!

    the perfect car for any goverment or publacist that wants to get there VIP snipered. theres only two people who would need this car, the pope (but not very safe seen as he has a bullet proof phone box on wheels atm). and 2 jeremy so when he gets put in charge off transport in this country he can stand in the back directing idiot drivers to the “weigh bridge” (ie idiot driver culling post). This can range from driving in an idiot like manor or just buying a stupid car , city rover for example. im sure maybach could fit it with a cock-o-meter. and maybe a pop up machine gun wen the roof is down! now were talking! stupid car but great potentcial!

    no we dnt hate this car just cause it isnt british we dnt just like the rolls royce and bentley cos they have british heritage we like them cos there nicer cars (in our oppinion) than the maybach. yes its gud for buisness men to do work in but u cut the roof off it and ur papers fly away or your laptop gets wet. only time it would be useful would be in some were hot and sunny but most people go to these places to get away from work not to work while been driven passed them. they go to south off france to enjoy the sun and relax they go to claifornia holiday and visit friends then go to new york or go to london or berlin to work were most off the time its cold and its raining. point proven this car stupid and pointless! convertables are a car off pleasure not a car of work. we no longer have dictators and presidents that hand out the roof off cars and limo’s because its not safe nor practical therefore this car has no other use than saying i have a bigger wallet than you in your normal maybach! stare at me! give it a year and ull see it on cribs or on a rap video with pidlly doo dah or 13p (creditcrunch messing with exchangerates).

    I’m guessing not a single one of us writing here have driven one of these or had the ‘distinction’ of being driven around in one. I’m also guessing the makers never thought exterior looks were the key selling point. So judgements on how bad the experience of ownership are seem quite funny. Hands up, how many would decline a free day with the Landaulet and a chauffer?

    Sorry,but i keep remembering idiotic things on the Phantom for those of u that says the mayback has too much of things u dont need:the RR Phantom has an UMBRELLA that shoots out when u open the suicide-doors!And a humidor for cigars!The maybach altso have this,but if u light up something that smells like its been pulled from “the young ones” Nigel`s ASS in a 400.000 dollar car,well,u deserve to be shot! Last,but not least,my dad drives a Mercedes SLR 300 McLaren.My mom drives a SL 350,me,i drive a Boxter S,and the “family-car” is an ML 63 AMG.Yes,i come from a wealthy family,and CAN afford pretty much any car i fancy.Thats why u lot,with ur toyotas and maybe a used Lexus i.s 200,or a bimmer from the 90`s,tuned and styled to the borderline rediculous doesnt apply to me.I`m sure a maybach 62 Landaulet will make its way to my neigborhood in the forseeable future,while u lot will never come whitin 500 yards from one.It`s good to be rich,and enyone who says it isnt,well,theyre eiter broke or stupid!

I`ll give u the new Jag XKR,but that is really an aston.I like the baby-aston V8.And unlike you,i have aktually driven the cars you only dream about.Do you think i`we never driven my dad`s McMerc? And another thing,is every other brit an illiterate,or do you write like “tat” because u really wish u was a gangsta from Compton,L.A instead of a peasant from Hackney,London?

    autofiliac, stop criticising everyone else, a boxter produced today would probably get this award! your spelling is none to perfect: ‘aktually’ ‘u’. there are very few peasants in Hackney anymore. just ‘cos your daddy loans you a ‘fast’ car, doesn’t mean you can rubbish anyone with less money than you.
    the Maybach is a truely appalling waste of money, but those with that much, under our political system, can drive anything they want into a tree. how long do you think it’ll take from Theo Paphitis to get this one?

They can`t seem to shake the “man with hat” rep.Jezza loves Ferrari,the F 430 scuderia,specially.And the U.S-made Ford GT?I believe he owns one?Or did.Hamster is a Porsche-fanatic,and May?Well,he`s a vinetaster in a Fiat panda.My point beeing:For the TG crew to like a foreign car,it must be the ABSOLUTE best they have to offer!”Don`t like the Audi RS4!It`s to front heavy” The only way for Audi to shut him up,was to stick him in an R8!”No!Don`t like the 911,it`s a beetle.An upsidedown bathtub!” So Porsche brought out the Carrera GT!THAT shut him up!But when he drives a Vanquish,he has a silly grin plastered across his face.Ferrari 575 does the same job,but jezza wants a Vanquish,with a flappy-paddle gearbox that won`t shift down!Ferraris flappy shifts in 60 milliseconds.Both up,and DOWN!Make me understand this idiotic patriotism.Steve Coogan altso would choose the Vanquish!Why?WHY?The Corvette Z06 leaves the Vanquish for dead on a track….

    Here we go again Autofiliac. watch a dvd called clarkson: the good the bad and the ugly. its all about how crap the american car industry is and the fact that the Ford GT has an english design and i think it says english chassis as well, along with other important parts taken from europe and asia. and old men drive corvettes in america, i’d like to see how many more girls you could pull in a vanquish, plus the corvette is faster so you can drive off without anyone noticing you are driving it!

    and dont go on about patriotism when you bunch of plebs have your flag on a pole outside of your house. you are a hypocrit and you are poisoning these forums for proper people to have their views without being quashed on. so if you wouldnt mind clicking that obese american flag on the top and ranting about it to your fellow yankees. and im sorry everyone about this it seems you need to shut an american up to get them to F**k off

    In comment 56 though, you have made a point that ever so slightly made this whole flamewar seem a tad silly: it is all about personal opinions. The whole business of motoring jounalism is based largely on opinion. Ok there are some unanimous ones, for instance in over 130 comments on the Ssangyong Rodius, not one person has denied that it’s uglier than a bulldog with its face pressed against a window.

    But we all have our tastes – or if you like this Maybach we’ve all been “voting for”, no taste – and we shouldn’t get this wound up and personal about what we each think, but next time you have a disagreement to make, try to tone it down a little.

    Oh, and every car is a pimp car in the US, because, in the US, nothing is sacred except the American flag.

    dear autof..agreed danmark isn´t my fav. place on the planet either and I´m not danish,(pers. info) so far there have been 2 attacks on nationality on these blogs and they were both rooted from scandinavia, one from someone called Lars.. was danish, the other one is you and it´s simply distastefull.. I understand you wanting to provoke converstaion/reaction try to think of other ways to do it and make this blog a better place is my advice.
    Cars if you need to know.. for the past 15 years I´ve briefly owned an alfa 156 and otherwise have been commited to bmw, at the moment I own a 330ci it´s 5 years old and I love it, my wife drives an mg tf, my father drives a rangerover and my MUM has a boxter..
    I´ve met a lot of norwegians and have been to norway a couple of times both on holiday and on business it´s a beautiful country and the ppl are nice in a norwegian way.. th cars are expensive and everyone drinks home brew for the same reason but I guess your social security system has it´s price, SO sorry for stepping on your toes, pls don´t step on mine or any other persons for that matter and lets get on with talking about cars in a civilized manner if you don´t mind..
    best of luck:D

    They should’ve just got a Mercedes S-Class & cut the roof off. It would be a lot better than that stupid Maybach.

    I vote for this because at this price you can’t expect to get away with such crappyness. I would not like the people who buy this car.

    Perfect for the affluent Saudi teen that is the son of an oil baron. He can grope the willing British girls in the open air, whilst cruising Dubai’s streets. Think of all the Tata Nanos that could be made from one of these.

    “It would be nice if you (The Insider) didn’t stick that stupid WTF banner on top of the car so we could actually see it !!!!”

    The current incarnation of the nostalgic Maybach name represents all that is good and to a great extent all that went wrong with the marque since its rebirth in 1997. It is a sad fact when companies such as Mercedes Benz – who have huge R&D and design budgets, decide to re-launch such a prestigious name based on run of the mill design themes that have stifled the original intent of the much fabled Maybach name. No doubt the current crop of Maybachs and even the much loathed Maybach Landaulet are marvels in their own right but they fail to deliver the all important Wow factor and instead have garnered sneers. Cars in this rarefied category run a very fine line between being cherished through the ages and being labelled as over the top ostentatious White Elephants – so I guess Mercedes Benz will have be much more imaginative that chopping the top of a Maybach 62 and painting it White which only makes matters worse. I have faith that Mercedes Benz could pull it off given a second chance – every one learns from their mistakes… or do they?

    This car shows the enormous gaping black hole between money and taste and gets my vote over the ridiculous BMW X6 (ditto) but only just!!
