The Maybach 62 Landaulet started as an unusual design study from a marque whose sales to the super-rich have been dwindling. Maybach failed to sell even one of its million dollar plus autos in Australia in 2007, while across North America Maybach dealers suffered dwindling sales as the wealthy preferred to plonk their hard earned down on the far more inspiring Rolls-Royce Phantom and its ilk.

Then we learnt that Maybach were biting the bullet and putting the 62 Landaulet into production. It’s hard to believe that a company struggling with a product range that borders on automotive perfection but fails to stir the loins, would proceed with the production of such an odd-ball machine – but they are.

Now we know the price, and surprise turns to amazement. Buying a 62 Landaulet for your chauffer will set you back a whopping US$1.35 million. That’s the price to buy one in the States, keeping in mind that the standard 62 Maybach costs around $US430,000 in the same market... So you can see our concern.

Maybach are far more positive about their new squillion dollar baby with Hans-Dieter Mulhaupt, the chap in charge of the Maybach program noting: "The Landaulet is for a superrich individual who wants something that is extremely extraordinary and enjoys being driven in a car with acres of sky above them."

Fair enough...
