    Probably 528. Just got done reading the article, that's one amazing car, and amazingly expensive too!

    How much you wanna bet that the owners of those $300,000 Maybach's are still using MAG lights? [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

    They could have just used about 30-40 Luxeon Stars, or about 10 5-Watters.

    The 5W LS isn't available in red, unfortunately.

    I once built a lighting fixture as a prototype using 525 Red/Orange "Spiders"; it was **INCREDIBLY** bright, but only took about 75w

    It was able to cast a wonderfull beam on the stage, but the company didn't think it being a usefull product, so it was trashed

    Trashed? As in dismantled or as in destroyed? If it's dismantled... say.... I believe you could somehow share the booty? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Default 528 LEDs!

    From Popular Science, January 2003, pg. 17:

    LEDs are nothing new in tailights, but Mercedes managed to pack 528 (corrected) of them ino the Maybach's rear. Just for fun, brake at night and watch the car behind you alight like it's on fire.

    I was laid off in Jan; I don't know what they did with the prototype

    I once sent an email asking for the prototype; didn't hear anything back

    Unfort; they didn't think LEDs had any use for lighting, not going to say what I think of upper management.
