The Vultures are Circling Over the Maybach Division of Mercedes-Benz

Things were bad for the Maybach brand “bach” in the day, back when there was talk of shutting the whole operation down and Mercedes reduced the number of American dealerships down to 42 or so (with a huge loss for all concerned). But now, news comes that those 42 “studios” (it’s not just a car but a work of art, get it?) had sales of just nine new cars for all of America last month.

What’s that, you ain’t never saw a Maybach? Well take a look, even the short one is huge. Of course the long one is bigger still, but Scottish crooner Rod Stewart can’t fit three passengers in his without all sorts of trouble. (If only his “Relationship Manager” could have contacted the “Center of Excellence“!)

The way things are going, there won’t be a new generation of Maybach to come out so the whole shebang is going to fizzle out in a short while unless another bailout is in the offing. That’s unlikely, so drunk Beyonce (she of halo halo halo) will have to find a new place to hide out from the paparazzi, and Maybach Babe 2 will have to find a new backdrop:

Of course, you can always turn to eBay to get an Exelero model, sort of.

See you in Hell, Maybach!
