Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman Guard used by Vladimir Putin is for sale online

Second-hand or used cars are usually appreciated because of their lower prices. Some used-car buyers hit the jackpot when they chance upon a car that has been well maintained and managed – and with less than 10,000 km on the odometer sold at a low price.

However, there are used cars that even go beyond their book value simply because they were formerly owned by famous celebrities – like athletes, actors or actresses, singers, talk show hosts, local heroes or even politicians. Fans and collectors would surely line up to get such vehicles even at a price higher than their book values.

But what if that car used to ferry the current top man of the Russian Federation in his first term as the second president of the country? As the private seller (a certain Sergei Urov) claims, this GUARD Mercedes-Benz S600 Pullman used to be one of the rides of current Russia President of Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. And this limousine-type vehicle is being sold at mobile.de -- which tags itself as the largest online vehicle market in Germany – for a whopping $1.3 million, which could be around ten times than the normal worth of a car of this type.

After years of poor sales and massive losses, Daimler has finally decided to drop the Maybach super luxury brand in two years. Starting in 2013, the car will be replaced with the more expensive Mercedes-Benz S-Class flagship saloon. In an interview with German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, CEO Dieter Zetsche said that internally, extensive talks were held on which approach would have the most potential in the luxury segment.

He explained that the company then concluded that there would be no sense in developing a successor model for the present Maybach. Daimler has set a target for Maybach to have volumes of 1,000 cars annually. However, Maybach’s slump continued in 2010 with sales of just 200 cars.

“We’ve come to the conclusion that it is better to cut our losses with Maybach than to continue into an uncertain future with a brand that has failed to live up to original sales expectations," the insider said. "Plans are already in place to fill the void left by the axing of the Maybach 57 and 62 with the next-generation S-class, which will be offered in three wheelbase variations and six different body styles, including a top-of-the-range S600 Pullman.”
