Edmunds Senior Writer Mark Takahashi gets behind the wheel of one of the finest ultra-premium luxury sedans: the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Maybach. He shares his observations on how it drives and stacks up against its few rivals. But his pretentious alter ego contends that the only thing that matters is how opulent the rear seats are.

Q: How much does the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Maybach sedan cost?
A: Prices start around $170,000 for the S 560. The S 650 is almost $200,000.

Q: What's the difference between the S 560 and the S 650?
A: About $30 grand, duh. Seriously, though, the S 560 has a 463-hp turbocharged V8 and all-wheel drive. The S 650 gets a 621-hp turbocharged V12 and is rear-wheel-drive only.

Q: Why would you buy the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Maybach over a "regular" S-Class?
A: Because you can. Prestige is the name of the game here.

Q: What does the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Maybach compete with?
A: The Bentley Flying Spur, the Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II and the Bentley Mulsanne.

Q: Is Mr. Takahashi as insufferable in person as he is here?
