This company was bought by Dailmer A.G. in the nineties and since than it is trzing to become competitive with Rolls Royce and Bentley in the luxurious limousine class. First Mercedes-Maybach model came out in 1997 and it was presented on Tokyo Motor Show. After 15 years of production and attempts to make this brand competitive with two mentioned luxury brands, Maybach drop the race and production of its models was discontinued.
