I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

Rolling on 23-inch wheels with enough chrome to blind the sun, the Maybach puts luxury at the forefront.

That's not to say it's the most luxurious car you can buy, that award goes to something more along the lines of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.

Still, if you'd like a reclining rear seat that is also capable of heating, cooling and massaging, the Maybach might be your jam.

And yes, it can be had with a champagne cooler in the rear seat.

The adaptive cruise control can slow the car down based information gathered from the in-dash navigation.

The steering assist helps drivers get down the road and can even change lanes automatically provided the coast is clear.
