Even though there is an all-new Mercedes Maybach available for you to buy today, the original, which was actually a financial disaster for the company, still looks more impressive, sort of more authoritative. The ultimate version of this generation of the luxury limo is the Maybach 62 S and it has been the subject of an upgrade program by Japanese tuner Office-K.
In many ways the Maybach 62 S is the perfect car for OFK to work on. Just like the tuner, the car has some eccentricities that some people find cool and interesting while others shun as vulgar and revolting. Just look at the wheels they have put on this Maybach. Not even Flavor Flav would approve of them for this car.
Speaking of the wheels, they are Forgiato NIDDO-M 22-inch rims with a special finish that complements the pearl white paint job the Maybach has been treat to. The car needed a respray because of the custom body kit Office-K has installed on it – a body kit that, again, is not really suitable for the character of the car.
Other highlights of Office-K Maybach 62 S include updated 2010 model door mirrors, lowered suspension (although why would you want to lower a car designed to deliver a plush and comfortable ride is beyond us), and custom headlights.
