Mercedes Reintroducing the Maybach' Somebody Call Rick Ross!! test 1-1

Back in 2002, Mercedes relaunched the Maybach brand to compete with Rolls Royce and Bentley at the top of the market.

And you get to watch as he beats the livin' hell out of a Giallo Modena yellow 458. Turn your speakers up so you can hear that V8 wail.
