    May-bach...May like the month, and bach like Johann Sebastian Bach (kind of rhymes with ark). If you're buying one, you owe me a ride

    if i can affordable to get a Maybach, I promise to borrow you a month right after i get the car....

    actually, I pronounce "May-Bahk"..exactly what you said before, but someone told me it's wrong and should be "my-back"...and another guys told me it should be "my-bock".....

    then .....in a lunch conversation...i've heard 3 versions......

    It's a German car. Time to learn some German. Maybe the teacher is included?

    all three are wrong.

    it should be pronounced more like My- bach (difficult to pronounce, its a strange "h" sound )

    Think of another way Mr. Schwarzenegger would refer to his behind.
