Maybach SW35

by Bob Hagin

The auto world has been ever-changing, especially so in age of multinational business transactions. week to week, we’re not of who owns what, who’s in or what’s going to be built. The automotive tidbits are examples of changing and challenging world and they all came to light in the six weeks:

RED FACES AT MERCEDES It was supposed to be a press display of the new Mercedes-Benz A-class mini-compact a of months ago, but it turned out to be a disaster. The German company had a group of Swedish auto to a fancy ride-and-drive press which included typical emergency driving situations to show off the stability of the product. It well until Robert a writer for the Swedish magazine Varld, went through a test known in Europe as the Avoidance Test. The maneuver a panic turn in a fully-loaded across two lanes at 35 MPH, to simulate a moose/auto confrontation on the In this case, the hypothetical won and Collin’s Mercedes landed on its The problem was traced mainly to designed (by Mercedes) Goodyear equipment tires (too but Mercedes has also undertaken a million chassis rework on the plus a recall of cars sold in Europe. In a retest, the car the moose test with colors, and one of the drivers chosen for the was, of course, Robert

MAZDA RX-7 AND ITS ROTARY UP IN THE AIR — With all the head-rolling and going on at Mazda since took complete control of the the one question that’s been sports car enthusiasts is the fate of RX-7. The quick little with its unorthodox Felix rotary twin engine has a favorite with performance since its appearance in ’79 and has near-icon status. Sports have become a minuscule of the world auto market and in a interview, outgoing Mazda Henry Wallace stated . the next (Mazda) sports car be secondary to our RV (road vehicle) as we try to get our resources devoted to where the is. Wallace went on to say that . a lot of our and sales people joined the because of the Wankel and the RX-7. so is apparently a corporate emotional involved in its demise.

ROLLS-ROYCE MAY GET A GERMAN ACCENT The sun continues to set on the British Empire or at least on its automotive industry. a British company whose business is building military and hardware, has owned Rolls-Royce 1980 and wants to off it as a money Several companies are engaged in a war, but it’s come to BMW and Volkswagen. BMW seems to be in the lead it is already the engine supplier for the next-generation Rolls and Bentley Bentley being Rolls’ less-expensive clone. The folks at seem a little testy the idea that it’s a with BMW ( . we want to dispel the said a Vickers spokesperson) but the may already be done as you read BMW owns Rover, the British that makes the upscale Land Rover line of vehicles, and seems bent on as much British prestige as The price tag for the 93-year old Rolls-Royce is reported to be between $420 and $870 million.

MAYBACH MAKES A TRIUMPHANT — As introduced at the Tokyo show in October, the new Maybach V12 is competition to the vaulted Rolls-Royce and a to that company’s new owner, by many to be German arch-rival With all the bells and whistles of a jet (wet bar, champagne TV, digital video, three phone lines, etc.), a worthy contender for the vaulted of Best Car in the World, a claim made by Rolls. Unless a very old German or a student of history, you’re probably with the Maybach name the last car to carry that was the custom-built SW35, last circa 1939. Daimler acquired Maybach’s assets and in 1960 and so the Maybach is really an fancy and expensive Mercedes, from the ground up. Maybach is historically famous for making the used in the Zeppelin lighter-than-air that bombed England World War I.

PORSCHE MOVES TO ATLANTA I never did understand exactly why the headquarters for Porsche was located in but I’ve heard it had something to do a marketing plan devised in the ’80s. It would have home-town dealers simply with the cars being directly to the buyer from two points, one of which was to be Reno. program didn’t work but the poo-bahs of Porsche decided to put in The Biggest Little City in the Now Porsche may well be planning to get in on the hot vehicle business but unfortunately is not a hub of heavy industry. So the word on the is that Porsche is moving its legions (most of them, to Atlanta. But a Porsche SUV? came up with one, as did and now Cadillac has one in the works. Perhaps should reconsider its decision to Rolls-Royce and go into the off-road

When we do our next six-week 1997 will be history. be a year closer to the coming of the millenia and I plan to update the world well past time. By then, who knows will happen? Maybe the players in the car business will be Electric and the utility companies.
