Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The Maybach brand is made up of three closely related ultraluxury sedans: the regular Type 57 and the extended-length Type 62 and Landaulet.
The Landaulet uses a rare vehicle body style in which the back half of the car can act as a convertible. Landaulets are supposed to be chauffeur-driven and have enclosed areas for the driver.
It takes nearly five months to construct and deliver Maybachs, which are sold through Mercedes-Benz dealerships.New for 2012 There are no significant changes for 2012.
Exterior The Landaulet's exterior size and sporty look are based on the Type 62 S. Landaulet buyers can customize the exterior paint job to anything they can think of.
The Landaulet features reinforced D-pillars that protect rear passengers when the roof is down. The black soft-top can open and close in less than 20 seconds. The top doesn't inhibit cargo space when down. A slim wind deflector automatically rises at speeds above 40 mph. Exterior features include:
Bi-xenon high-intensity-discharge headlamps with headlight washer jets
Front and rear fog lamps with chrome surrounds
Automatic windshield wipers
Power-closing and power-opening rear roof
Auto-dimming, power, heated side-view mirrors

The Landaulet differs from its siblings in that it has a partition between the passenger and driver compartments. An intercom system allows passengers to communicate with the driver. Rear interior appointments are more luxurious than the driver's compartment. Rear head restraints are also slightly larger in the Landaulet to reduce wind noise when the top is open.

Available Grand Nappa leather upholstery
Wood, aluminum, carbon fiber, stone or gold-plated trim
