I told my sister to try to point out the car that's worth more than our house. She was stumped, seeing as how anyone who doesn't know cars would just see a Maybach as an ordinary large sedan. Case in point... Anyone can recognize a Rolls Royce or a Bentley. Maseratis are more subtle, but still stand out. But Maybachs... If you're going to get a six-figure luxury sedan, at least get one that looks the part.
That said, I do personally like Maybachs. They're super Mercedes-ful and that taillight thing is weird, but they're distinct and cool enough for me. But I wouldn't want one unless everyone would recognize it as something special.
