The most expensive car that Mercedes makes is called a Maybach. It comes in at about $375,000 but you can get a more expensive version if you need to. It turns out that even with the massive increases in income and wealth for the most wealthy of citizens, the Maybach is not selling all that well.

Where Tax Cuts for the Wealthy Go to Buy
The Mercedes-Benz car maker resuscitated the Maybach brand nearly a decade ago in the hopes of profiting from a renaissance in super-luxury sedans. But almost from the start, the über-luxury division's sales have faltered, dwindling to fewer than 200 Maybachs sold world-wide last year.
The solution is obviously more tax cuts for the wealthy, in the hope that such a policy would save the Maybach. Republicans are said to be considering this as part of their deficit reduction plans for the new deficit reduction panel.
