There has been a lot of rumors about a coupe version of the legendary Maybach, to take on the new Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe, but as it turns out Daimler is not going to do it.
Nope, it’s going to be a limited edition coachbuilt by German company Xenatec.
And based on the first renderings they’ve released, we have to say it looks much better that the limousine version. They say it’s based on the Maybach 57S and has the same length, but it has a lower profile and has two doors, obviously!
The front of the car is still recognizable as a Maybach, there’s only a few garnished on the lower skirt. But on the side you notice the lower roof line, plus elongated doors and that leads to the back where they’ve done a proper facelift.
The car is also powered by the same engine as the 57S, which means it has a V12 bi-turbo developing 612 hp and over 1000 nm of torque enabling this nearly 3 ton car to accelerate to 60 mph in just 5 seconds.
The Maybach Coupe is limited to 100 units and each is reportedly priced at 650,000 Euro. Xenatec says most of their customers come form Middle East, Asia and America.
