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.

Vehicle Overview Maybach has two versions of its extended-length Type 62 model: the Type 62 and an even-quicker Type 62 S.
Most Type 62s are custom-built to buyers' specifications. It takes nearly five months to construct and deliver Maybachs, which are sold through Mercedes-Benz dealerships. The Type 62 competes with the extended-length Rolls-Royce Phantom VI and Bentley Arnage RL.
Changes for 2009 There are no significant changes for the 2009 Maybach Type 62.
Exterior Seventeen body colors are available, and two-tone paint schemes can be specified. The Type 62 is 242.7 inches long overall, has a 150.7-inch wheelbase and is 78 inches wide, making the Type 62 the longest sedan in its class.
The Type 62 S gets a modified front end, 20-inch wheels and an exclusive black, silver or white paint job. An optional panoramic glass rear roof is electrotransparent and capable of altering the amount of light that enters the cabin.
Interior The Type 62 comes standard in a four-occupant configuration, though the car can be built to hold five. Trunk space is a whopping 21.4 cubic feet, which is the best in its class.
Buyers can mix options with an immense standard-equipment list in numerous combinations to suit specific tastes. Buyers can choose from six Grand Nappa leather colors and three types of wood. Many custom options are available, including replacing the wood trim with granite. Gold — real gold, not some plastic knockoff — is also available as an interior trim.
An available Business Package includes wireless internet and an onboard color printer. The Type 62 S offers piano lacquer and carbon fiber trim with exclusive black or white leather. Integrated leather piping comes in black or silver.
