Maybach Motorenbau is a defunct German car manufacturer that today exists as a sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz. The company was founded in 1909 by Wilhelm Maybach and his son, originally a subsidiary of Luftschiffbau Zeppelin GmbH and was itself known as Luftfahrzeug-Motorenbau GmbH until 1912.
In 1960, Maybach was acquired by Daimler-Benz. The brand returned as a standalone ultra-luxury car brand in the late 20th century, sharing significant components with Mercedes-Benz. After slow sales, the Maybach name returned once again as a sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz, which is owned by Daimler AG. Daimler currently produces an ultra-luxury edition of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class under the Mercedes-Maybach brand.

Maybach becomes one of the luxury cars of Mercedes Benz in early 2000. The double Ms in Maybach logo are actually the abbreviation of Maybach Motorenbau and it also exposes the symbol of swastika as stated in Dr. Rex Curry’s note.
Dr. Rex Curry in his note states that the logo of Maybach is imitated by Volkwagen. The swastika symbol in Maybach is apparently used as double letter S which means socialism formed by national socialist workers party in German. The same symbol exists on other cars, such as Audi, Wanderer, DKW and Horch. You may read the detail explanation more on the website of Dr. Rex Curry. By getting to know more of Maybach logo, you will also study more on German history about Nazi and socialism which is said to be represented also by the luxury of Maybach logo.
