Spectacular Spy Shots of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Maybach in China, showing a white example without much camouflage. The Maybach E-Class is the luxurious and stretched variant of the upcoming 2017 W-213 E-Class sedan.
The Maybach will be extended by about 20 centimeters. It seems to have a larger door than the regular E and it will have a partially enclosed third-rear window, just like the S-Class Maybach.

A Hongqi L5 sedan and a Maybach 62 dressed as a wedding car, seen on the parking lot of a hotel in the great city of Shanghai. Both are great cars with loads of power and loads of presence, but you can have only one. Which one? Time to compare!

Last month the Mercedes-Maybach brand was launched in China, the first country in the world to get the new luxurious S-class based limousines. There was considerable surprise when Mercedes-Maybach not only launched the S600 but also the S400 4Matic, powered by a 333hp twin-turbocharged 3.0 liter V6. However, so far we had only seen photos of the S600. That changes today with a fresh from the boat Mercedes-Maybach S400, in white!

A big black Maybach 62S, seen in the great city of Shenzhen in Guangdong Province by reader Daniel P-F, thank you for the pictures! Wealthy Chinese car buyers have never understood why Mercedes-Benz decided to kill the Maybach brand. They loved it, and were willing to pay shiploads of money to own one.

A big all-black Maybach 62, seen in the underground parking lot of the Kerry Center in the great city of Shanghai by reader Chiprdan, thank you for the picture! The mighty 62 is 6.2 meters long and powered by a 5.5 liter twin turbo V12, good for 550hp and 900nm. The 62 and 62S are still available in China, but the 57 is no more.
The 62 on pics has yellow license plates, normal cars got blue, because it is so long it qualifies as a truck in most Chinese cities. Yellow in Zhengzhou, yellow in Beijing, but strangely, the lucky ones come in blue.
Price for the 62 starts at 6.18 million yuan or 1.007 million USD. Production of the Maybach range will come to a complete stop later this year. The brand will be missed in China where it was popular from the very beginning. Its replacement, a stretched S called ‘Pullman’, will likely face hard times in China where status is all-important. No rich man, want to be seen in an airport limousine…
