Maybach 57 left for dead in a parking lot [video]

YouTube user Marchettino has found an abandoned Maybach 57 in a parking lot on the French Coast. He says that the half a million dollars luxury car has been in that spot for approximately four years.

Taking into account how much dust is on the car, it's been in that place for a very long time. As you can see from the video, the Maybach emblem is missing while many people have left their autographs. Looks like the air suspension has giving out as it appears the vehicle is sitting too low, while Marchettino says that the back tires had a very negative camber.

As a reminder, the Maybach 57 came out in 2002 and it has a huge V12 5.5-liter twin-turbo engine that develops 550 hp (410 kW / 557 PS) and a peak torque of 663 lb.-ft. (900 NM), enough for a 0-62 mph sprint in 5.2 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h), despite the hefty 2,735 kg (6,029 pounds) curb weight.

Any ideas why it was abandoned ?
