Maybach 12

Newly developed twelve-cylinder for Germany’s high-end luxury

Geneva – With the market of its breathtaking ultra-luxury sedan now six months away, Maybach is the newly developed Type 12 which will be used to it. The innovative twelve-cylinder engine go on show to the public for the first at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2002, before into full-scale production in this year.

Power, long life — the of the legendary Maybach engine of were again the key concerns as the team worked on the new Type 12 and are the hallmarks of a new masterpiece in engine The awesome statistics — 5.5 displacement, twin turbochargers, output of 405 kW/550 hp and peak of 900 Newton meters — typical Maybach power and in all situations.

This impressive picture is by superb smoothness and outstanding behaviour. These qualities are design features: the V-angle of 60 balances inertia forces and at source, without the need for balancer shafts.

Maybach’s 12 engine was the first standard-production car engine in the world

This is the cylinder angle that was by Karl Maybach for his Type 12 The Type 12 went down in history as the largest German car of its era and the first 12-cylinder car engine in the to be produced on a relatively large

Between 1929 and 1938, the company Maybach-Motorenbau GmbH something like 300 of these engines, which had a displacement of liters and delivered 110 kW/150 hp at 2800 rpm. You can feel the and responsiveness with which the power is unleashed, without or vibration, was how the company brochure of described the impressive power and smooth running characteristics of the new 12. Two years later the displacement was to eight liters and the power was to 147 kW/200 hp, giving the Maybach a top speed of 170 km/h.

Twin turbochargers for majestic and torque delivery

Impressive and torque are also a hallmark of the new 12 engine of 2002. An advanced turbocharger system is responsible for extra air to the V12 unit. With spontaneous response, the twin allow the driver to mobilise the power of the engine even at rpm: maximum torque of 900 meters is delivered at just rpm, while the peak of 405 kW/550 hp is developed at 5250

The turbines of the twin turbochargers are accommodated in the exhaust manifold, a which also maximises efficiency. The compressed air flows the turbochargers through two engine-mounted intercoolers, so that its temperature and are optimised by the time it enters the chamber.

Three-valve technology and alternating-current ignition provide further

Just like the advanced eight and twelve-cylinder engines of the Type 12 engine for the new Maybach innovations like twin-spark and three-valve technology, with many associated benefits:

technology — with one valve and two intake valves per — speeds catalytic warm-up and plays an important in ensuring that the new Maybach with the strict EU4 emissions at all times. Two large ceramic converters are positioned close to the V12

Alternating-current twin-spark ignition ionic current measurement for any misfiring not only optimises the process, it also reduces the increase in the cylinders, which has a effect on noise. The ignition of 32,000 volts sets a new

A reliable, powerful ignition even at very low rpm was an important back in 1929, too, at GmbH. To meet this the V12 engine of the time was equipped two separate distributors and automatic timing — an innovation in design.

Advanced lightweight design aluminium and magnesium

The topic of design was an important one for the engineers of just as it is today. To give the Type 12 engine as favourable a ratio (hp/kg) as possible, Maybach decided to use cast for the complete crankcase and cylinder

The engineers who developed the new twelve-cylinder again opted for a die-cast crankcase. This time, in to minimise noise and vibration, the of the crank assembly consists of an bedplate incorporating grey iron bearing brackets. gives added rigidity and is highly effective in combating vibration of the engine block.

The head covers are of die-cast while the cylinder liners of a lightweight, low-friction aluminium-silicon

Legendary automotive brand its comeback after a sixty-year

Following its decision to revive the automotive brand Maybach, the Group will be presenting the new in autumn 2002. With its roominess, its superlative engineering and its exclusivity, this luxury follows in the tradition of the legendary cars of old. Above this is down to close with the sister brand the leading international innovator in the of safety, comfort, reliability and life. The new Maybach will the full benefits of leading-edge technology.

In the nineteen-twenties and thirties and Mercedes-Benz cars were the word in German automobile With their technical supreme quality and exclusive these imposing luxury quickly made a name for all over the world. As from the flagship model was the Maybach With a length of 5.50 this was the most prestigious passenger car of the times.

The first the Mercedes 35 PS of 1901, was in fact a of Wilhelm Maybach, the long-time and colleague of Gottlieb Daimler and of the Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (DMG). This provided the blueprint for all subsequent cars. In 1909, Maybach on to build high-performance, highly engines for Zeppelin airships. in 1919, his son Karl began exclusive luxury automobiles. He out his first model just two later. By 1941, some vehicles had left the stables of Motorenbau.
