Not to be a Debbie downer here, but this A8 protects against IED's but a military HumVee can't do it for troops? Ironic.

Then they will use RPGs. It is not saying anything about that :)
Kyle McCullough Aug 12, 2012
That's fast! Especially for something as heavy as an armored car
Jimmy Atkinson Aug 12, 2012
Actually, those look pretty thick for run flats. All the run flats I've dealt with (mechanic) are very low profile so they can have a strong sidewall, which is what makes a run flat possible
Gazel Hebbert Aug 12, 2012
How can you tell they're run flats? Serious question btw
Sankar Shanmugam Aug 12, 2012
Run flats are standard on bmws now
Adithya Chandrasekhar Aug 12, 2012
Only thing that gives it away are the run flats
Christian De Prisco Aug 13, 2012
Nope is not the latest
Bennie Andthe Jets Aug 12, 2012
So no actual pictures of the car?
Shaun Conroy Aug 12, 2012

Chris Gaines Aug 12, 2012

Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Aug 12, 2012

Amazing amounts of greed.
Swarun Kulasekaran Aug 13, 2012
In those countries they cut ur hand off if u are caught stealing. This was a while back but I think it's still in partial play today. No one is scared of getting their shit stolen in saudi
Reese Fenske Aug 12, 2012

Jose Miguel Fernandez Aug 12, 2012

I imagine hitting something twice with something as inaccurate as an rpg would be quite difficult.
Thibault Leroy Aug 12, 2012
Yeah its cool for it to be heavily armored and all but i mean two RPG hits in the same place will probably get you
Bennie Andthe Jets Aug 12, 2012
With that weak power to weight ratio, you'd be an easy target for anyone in a car, or truck, or just someone walking briskly...
Extremis Colson Aug 13, 2012

Well, that's Jacques Rogge, president of the International Olympic Committee. I guess that IOC really pays him well!

As long as she swallows. Bitch better not stain the seats OR the carpet.
Mark Ridenour Aug 12, 2012
Nah, he'll just get a BJ.
Cameron Dean Aug 12, 2012
He'll more than likely try to have sex with her when they get in.
Artin Ohanian Aug 13, 2012
This car is just plain gorgeous. Such quality!! I love Maybachs of new & old!
Extremis Colson Aug 13, 2012
Damn I could sleep in this!!!!
Austin Oxner Aug 12, 2012
Why could Maybach not make a good looking car?! If the car looked half as good as the interior, nothing could touch it. And it would be almost worth the price.
Colin Dzendolet Aug 12, 2012
I'm surprised it doesn't have a toilet lol
John Serely Aug 12, 2012
Wow, maybach certainly got the interior right
Timothy Hooker Aug 12, 2012
everything looks great...except what appears to be a little toilet under the middle tv
