It all started back in 1921.
For many, the name “Maybach” came around when the 57 and 62 models were unveiled in the late 1990s. These luxurious sedans were incredibly popular and were mentioned quite often in pop culture. However, Maybach has actually been around for 100 years as of 2021. It all started back in 1921 when Wilhelm Maybach, the technical director of Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft, and his son Karl Maybach, unveiled the 22/70 HP W 3. The W 3 was the first German car to have four wheels,, featured a planetary gearbox mated to a six=-cylinder engine, and had an interior replete with wood and leather. It was and still is a true luxury car. Now, in 2021, Maybach has become Mercedes-Maybach but the luxury is still there.
“Mercedes-Maybach is the pinnacle of automotive excellence at Mercedes-Benz” says Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Mercedes Benz AG responsible for Marketing and Sales. “As we celebrate 100 years of Maybach’s unique heritage at the forefront of luxury experience, we remain passionate about driving the brand forward to set the highest standards in style, comfort and outstanding craftsmanship.”
