The Maybach 57 and 62 were the first automobile models of the Maybach brand since the brand’s revival by DaimlerChrysler. They are derived from the Mercedes-Benz Maybach concept car presented at the 1997 Tokyo Motorshow (which was based on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan). DaimlerChrysler attempted to buy the Rolls-Royce/Bentley marque when Vickers offered the company up for sale. When this attempt failed (they were outbid by BMW and Volkswagen respectively) they introduced the Maybach as a direct challenger in 2002. Both models are variants of the same ultra-luxurious automobile.
The 'Moby' is a concept by WooJin Chung which is an electricity powered vehicle. It is based on the idea to decrease the volume of the vehicle so that it is convenient in small alleys and for storage. The innovative part about this is that it separates into two to make it even more smaller. It displaces its back part with a docking system, which can be altered by different types of optional parts like a high capacity battery or another passenger seat. If you compare it to standard four wheelers, it takes up half their size in parking lots. It feels more like riding a motorcycle than driving a car however. It has big circular entrances that allow more convenient and flexible use of the seating area rather than doors. The name Moby is because the vehicle resemble Moby Dick, the whale.
Mike Vetter and his Florida-based company, 'The Car Factory' have come up with this rather strange and alien like customized car called the Extra-Terrestrial Vehicle or EVT. It looks like it's right off the set of a sci-fi movie. Under this futuristic looking car, there lies the heart of a normal little Chevrolet Aveo. However, if you don't want an Aveo, you can also opt for a Porsche Boxster donor car. I don't want to think that anyone would want to strip down their Porsche to make it look like it's from Star Trek, but people have weird ideas. The EVT is perfect for geeks who can afford it. It's available on eBay at the moment for $86,000 and mind you, this is with the Aveo.
The 2010 Fisker Karma is a new gas/electric hybrid luxury car. The Karma is a 4-door, rear-wheel-drive sedan built in Finland and distributed by U.S.-based Fisker Automotive, Inc. It pairs a battery-powered electric motor with a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder for 403 hp total. Unlike most hybrids, Karma uses plug-in technology the company calls Q DRIVE. It can run up to 50 miles solely on electric power. After that, the gasoline engine turns on a generator, which charges the car's lithium-ion battery pack to provide power to the electric motor. Since the electric motors drive the wheels directly, no transmission is needed
