S8 In Action
Warning: It is in German, but the engine sounds aren't. The test driver's skill is pretty awesome too.

Well, I agree to a point... still believe the M5 is a much more finely tuned performance machine, where the Maser makes more of a fashion statement to go with a still-superb performance capability. Saw 2 new M5's at my dealer recently and was very impressed - was not able to drive them, though.
The Caddy does "compete", but has some ground to cover to reach 1st place. Not the biggest fan of the STS design, but would still take one in a NY minute. Kudo's to Caddy for getting in the game in a big way...

The M5 may very well be, but I won't likely get the chance to drive either so....I'll have to take your word on this one.
Oh I agree about the STS-V. Automobile says it can't compete with the Germans, and MT put the CLS55 over the STS-V, but C&D put the STS-V over the CLS55, mainly because of the price and better back seat.

Re: Maybach 62
Wow. Leaves me almost speechless. Last time I saw that much wood and leather was in the Oak Room at the Plaza.
Just had a funny thought: Wouldn't it be a downer if you had to drive your Maybach 62 on the chauffeur's day off, and everybody who saw you would think that you were just the chauffeur? Of course, that should never happen because you would have your fleet of cars to choose from on the chauffeur's day off, from your Ferrari to your 760.
Which raises the question: What other cars does the typical Maybach 62 owner own? Assume a husband, wife, and two teenage kids - one boy and one girl. What's in the garage? I'll start:
Husband: BMW 760Li, Bentley Conti GT, Ferrari Superamerica
Wife: MB S600, MB E500 wagon (for shopping) or maybe a Lincoln Navigator?
Son: BMW X5
Daughter: MB CLK500 (maybe BMW Z4?)

Well when someone can afford a 360K car there is no telling what else they have in their garage(s).
The only Maybach I even remotely would want is the 57S.

Nice! I wonder how many of those there are in the world.

Not a luxury car, but definitely European and definitely High-End.
Pagani Zonda F
A pity this thing isn't sold here, yet.
