I have a nice apartment in Shanghai, but certainly not as luxurious as the expat compounds that I used to live in while working for DaimlerChrysler. So to my surprise I noted a Maybach that was parked right in front of the entrance to my apartment building. Did one of my neighbours win the lottery?

  1. Finally they delivered your bonus for your years working with Daimler 😉

  2. WTF is a Maybach? I’m not a car nut, but I would’ve thought I’d at least heard of them before.

  3. @Derek – it’s a car brand produced by DaimlerChrysler. The car is one of the most luxurious in the world, and priced accordingly. This was only the second time I saw one in China, so they are not very common!

  4. I have only seen one in Holland before and one in Beijing. Don’t know how many they actually produce in 1 year.
    Whats the price of this car in China, around 8.000.000 rmb?

  5. @milesdavis: that could be, there is at least one guy who bought his mistress an apartment in this building and who drives a Ferrari. He does not want to pay the underground garage parking fee (or wants to show off), so always parks his Ferrari in front of the building as well.

  6. @David: as expensive as a Maybach can get, it is still cheaper than you expected – around 6.800.000rmb for a Maybach 62 🙂

    @Marc: This looks like a Maybach 62 bought in a grey market to me … due to the orange reflector at the side of the door as well as the wheel rim :p
