See if you can follow this logic: Mercedes-Benz creates an ultra-luxury brand called Maybach to compete with the likes of Rolls-Royce and Bentley. The company really doesn't do much with the brand aside from introducing a number of special editions, showing off the Exelero concept, and having Jay-Z and Kayne West cut one up in a music in a music video. After ten years, Mercedes decides to kill of the brand due to lackluster sales. In its place will be a super S-Class wearing the Maybach nameplate?! According to Autoweek, this could happen.
The new super S-Class could be wearing the Maybach nameplate when it is shown sometime this year. The model will be stretched out a foot and feature such amenities like reclining rear seats and folding tables.
Still, bringing back a nameplate that failed... is that a good idea? Why not use something like Pullman or Grosser? We'll be keeping an eye on this.
