The Fight between Rolls Royce and Maybach

If you could ever see the craziest and the most extraordinary car fight, that would probably be this one. You do not happen to see the fight between Rolls Royce and Maybach every day. You do not happen to see Rolls Royce every day neither. If before the marquee Rolls Royce was something that in our childhood meant a total expensive style, then it is interesting to see, what this car has become now and what other cars can compete with it.

So let’s start with price. Be ready for something really up-scale. The price for both Rolls Royce Phantom and Maybach 57 from year 2012, starts from $380,000. So right from the price get ready that this car will not be just like the other ones. Now let’s get into the heart of those two dragons. Rolls Royce is equipped with the great and powerful 6.7L 453hp V12, while Maybach has a great engine too, but in comparison with Phantom the volume of 5.5L 543hp V12 may seem to be not that fair, however the horsepower distribution seems to be on the Maybach side. The Phantom also got four valves, while the 57th model of Maybach got 3. Of course, we should look at the fuel economy, as those two bloody bastards seem to eat quite a lot, they both are capable of only 10-11 mpg in the city and around 16-18 on the highway…
