1resuthi5jabb__450×300.jpgPerhaps hoping to forestall the inevitable (read: Gunnar Heinrich's "Whither Maybach" editorial), the double-M luxury marque has announced a new Landaulet model.  It's aimed squarely at those of us rich enough to want a car that demonstrates the cavernous class divide between ourselves and our chauffeurs. Set to retail at a cool €900k, the Landaulet is based on the 612 horsepower Maybach 62S. It's Unique Selling Point (other than monumental depreciation): a retractable soft top that allows passengers to enjoy a pleasant breeze through their perfectly-coiffed hair. To ensure that the owners of expensive hairpieces need not suffer undue humiliation, Maybach has equipped its Landaulet with an automatic wind diffuser which deploys at about 45 mph. Is the Landaulet worth the nearly half-million premium over a standard 62S? Of course not… and Maybach is a little disappointed that you would even ask such a vulgar question.
