The Six ripped the Five and the Maybach taped it
Six is a reference to the Mercedes s600, while 5 is a reference to the s500. Maybach is also made by Mercedes. This line can have two meanings:
1. Luxury cars are competing with each other, even in the same company, and they are being videotaped by each other, but for no apparent reason
2. The six metaphorically ripped the five, which can be a five dollar bill, and the Maybach “taped” it back together, or brought it back. When the Maybach was reintroduced into the Mercedes line in the early 2000s, the Mercedes brand image of high luxury cars was restored.
