Talk about things that can wipe the smile off somebody’s face, not being able to start your $200,000 car on the first try has to be right up there.
Of course, when you’re having to go through all of that while everybody is watching, filming and taking pictures, can be even more nerve-wrecking. The rapper’s facial expression changed the second he realized something was wrong and his 6.0-liter V12-powered super-luxury saloon wasn’t cooperating.
The 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 starts off from $189,350 in the US, but that’s before you add anything extra like wheels, wooden trim, the $6,400 Burmester Surround Sound system, or the $4,950 Magic Sky Control system.
Something sounded terribly wrong with the car as Yeezy was trying to depart his office in Calabasas, California, and it wasn’t until the second try that the V12 fired up, sounding reasonably healthy.
Maybe its time for the “World’s No.1 superstar” (as the guy behind the camera puts it) to bring his car into the shop and have that little hiccup checked out, otherwise he might have to go through another of these embarrassing moments.
Then again, Kanye does have a history of violence regarding Maybachs.
