ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

If you've got $81,000 and not a penny more begging to be traded for a luxury sedan, you'll have to be an unusually shrewd negotiator to take home a brand new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The cheapest S450 Mercedes will sell you today lists for around $92,500. It's a fine machine with its 362-horsepower twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine, but it's no match for the 523-hp, ultra luxo-laden Mercedes-Maybach S600 you could buy for a cool $11,500 less. It's a car that our own Doug DeMuro already called "crazy," and he would know cray-cray.

All you have to do is forgo the new-car smell, and be satisfied with 44,000 miles already added to the odometer. A used Mercedes-Maybach is an absolute steal, a car that has lost more than half its original value over the course of just three model years.

Mercedes-Maybach S600 interior

That's right, a 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 costs about $81,000, while a brand new one is $200,000. This one is for sale as a certified pre-owned Mercedes-Benz, meaning it's covered by a bumper-to-bumper warranty good for five years and unlimited mileage from the original purchase date. Similar deals aren't hard to find on Autotrader. Imagine wafting your way between gas stations (it was rated at just 16 miles per gallon in combined driving, after all) in one of the car's four massaging seats with the 24-speaker Burmester 360-degree audio system blaring -- all while knowing that whatever may break is going to be fixed for free by Mercedes-Benz.

Of course, there's a reason used Maybachs are (relatively) cheap. They are massively complicated cars, the kind where basic maintenance items such as tires (about $1,800 for a set of original-equipment Goodyear runflats) may raise eyebrows at every opportunity.

Armed with that knowledge, the Mercedes-Maybach S600 can still be a smart buy. Few luxury cars offer as much for the money.

It stretches about eight inches longer than a standard S-Class, with every inch of that aimed at making the back seat an even more plush spot. The rear seats recline, feature a hot-stone massage, and have leg rests that deploy outward. Just insist that the Robbe & Berking silver-plated champagne flutes standard on every Maybach are conveyed with the sale. Find a Mercedes-Maybach on Autotrader
