Ryan in the back of a Maybach

Ryan in the back of a Maybach. Maybachs are designed for owners who have a driver and ride in the back. Therefore as a kid who rides in the back, Ryan went nuts seeing how there was so much room that he could stick his legs all the way out and not hit anything, have a refrigerator between the rear seats (option 308, $1,100), as well as pull-out tray tables for snacks from the center rear console, full heating, cooling and electric seat adjustments for the rear seats and cooled cup holders (option 299, Executive Rear Seat Package PLUS, $1,950).

Ryan and the Maybach

Ryan and the Maybach, his new favorite car. He hasn't stopped talking about it ever since. Our salesman Jim (760) 815-6033 said he could give us $20,000 off, so my wife, always on the lookout for a deal, became interested. Dad laughs; it costs as much as the median US home, has 12 cylinders and is almost 18 feet long (214.7")!
