Autotrader Find: 2005 Maybach 57 for $39,998

If you’re looking for a cheap ultra-luxury car, look no further. This 2005 Maybach is the cheapest I’ve ever seen listed for sale on Autotrader at just $39,998 — that’s about a tenth of its original price from just 14 years ago.

This price tag is especially crazy considering what the car offers: pure, smooth, relaxed and quiet luxury. It’s amazing just how comfortable and opulent this car really is, even though casual observers might mistake it for a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. And while its values never hit a floor as they did for the Rolls-Royce Phantom, it offers that same level of luxury.

So why is this one so cheap? The primary reason is the mileage, as this particular Maybach has been driven a lot — 90,000 miles, to be exact — which is quite a high figure for one of these. It’s also a fairly early production base model, rather than an extended-length “62” version or a faster “S” model. Still, it has all the luxury you could want.

And if you want it, this one is about the same price as a Toyota Avalon. It’s offered by the Car Bar in Orlando, and the Carfax report shows that it was sold new in Illinois before it moved to New York and eventually to Florida. And although it’s had several owners, it’s also seen its share of Mercedes-Benz dealerships along the way. Find a Maybach 57 for sale

  1. I could see being driven in one of these, but how do they actually drive?  Someone being chauffeured will never buy this, so not sure if there’s a lot of desirability to me.  I’d rather buy a Bentley Arnage or the like for that kind of cash in that class of automobile.

    • It’s a 57, no the 62 so it’s pretty much just a ’98-’05 S Class that was super-decked without a long wheelbase. It’s not crazy to drive one of these if you like a 7 Series or an S Class as a daily driver. Same size.
