Autotrader Find: 2004 Maybach 57 For $35,000

If you’re searching for a cheap ultra-luxury car, you might be considering old Rolls-Royce Phantoms, but when it comes to cheapness, used Phantoms are no match for old Maybach models. This 2004 Maybach Type 57 is proof of that, as it’s listed for just $35,000.

Yes, that’s right: 35 grand, or Toyota Camry money, for the ultimate luxury Mercedes-Benz. Although these cars look like S-Class models from the same period, they shared virtually nothing with the S-Class and featured a distinct design and a larger, more luxurious interior.

This particular example has traveled just 75,000 miles from new, which is a huge figure for one of these. Most Maybach models were saved for occasional use, just like Rolls-Royces. The ad notes that the original sticker price of this car was around $320,000, meaning it has lost basically 90 percent of its value from new — and now it’s the cheapest Maybach for sale in the United States.

If you’re interested, this Maybach 57 is offered by Saldutti Car Corner in Pennsylvania, and it appears to be in decent condition, showing the typical wear you’d expect from a 15-year-old Mercedes-Benz. You may be scared off by the idea of owning an older Maybach, but there’s no doubt that you’re unlikely to find another one with this pricing anytime soon. Find a Maybach 57 for sale

  1. I’d love to meet the person who goes in to buy a used 2017 C Class sedan, sees this thing and just says, “eff it” and drives off! Then shows off to his wife who proceeds to drive it back to return it and falls in love.
