The most unexpected news for the day goes to the luxury car brand, Maybach.
Just recently Daimler AG announced that they will be discontinuing Maybachs due to low sales and lack of profits. Some may blame this on the state of economy, but all the big time celebrities feature these cars in their videos and are even seen getting out of these vehicles at events. Most recently Jay-Z and Kanye featured a unique Maybach in their latest video ‘Otis’.
But back to the facts, just last year the luxury brand sold 200 fewer cars than previous years. The starting price for Maybachs is $375,250.
The new plan to make up for the lost profits comes from Daimler Chief Executive, Dieter Zetsche. He plans on expanding the three series Mercedes-Benz S-Class model to six in 2013.

“We came to the strong conclusion that the sales chances for the Mercedes brand are much more stronger than those for Maybach.” – Dieter Zetsche
