Daimler-owned Maybach has unveiled the Zeppelin 57 and 62 flagship luxury sedans at the Geneva Motor Show. Essentially based on the aging W140 S-Class chassis, both models are now powered by the Mercedes/AMG 6.0 litre V12 biturbo power plant that is capable of 640HP, which has an extra 28HP, and 1000Nm of torque. 0 – 100 km/h sprint figure for the 57 is rated at 4.9 seconds, while the 62 model achieves it in 5.1 seconds. The 57’s top speed is electronically limited to 275 km/h while the latter is set to 250 km/h.
The slightly dull looking Zeppelin features a two tone body colour finish and 20 inch wheels in a Chrome Shadow finish while the interior is finished in the highest quality California beige leather and high-gloss piano lacquer trim. It also comes with a perfume atomizer which is located in an internally illuminated Plexiglass sphere on the rear centre console. You can select two different fragrances (one light and refreshing, the other woodier, richer and heavier), both of which are specially developed with Givaudan.
Orders can be placed now and buyers can expect deliveries by September this year. Pricing wise, the Maybach Zeppelin 57 costs 406,000 Euros while the Maybach Zeppelin 62 carries a price tag of 473,200 Euros. Continue reading to view an image gallery of the Maybach Zeppelin.
