German based engineering specialist Xenatec has previewed a limited production Maybach Coupe. This project will have some connection with the Daimler Group but will be built by Xenatec in Heilbronn, Germany.
The Maybach 57 S chassis will be provided by Daimler and the coupe will house four seats. To make it a two-door, modifications to the A, B and C pillars, doors, fenders, front and rear section are needed. Compared to the limo, the coupe’s B pillar will be moved 20 inches rearwards for easier access to the back seats. The car’s width has been increased by about 20 cm to fit extended wheel arches. Other changes seen are the new front and rear apron, tail lights and exhaust pipes.
The coupe will be powered by a twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12 engine as in the Maybach 57 S. With 612 bhp and 999 Nm of torque, this giant coupe should breach 100 km/h in just 5.0 seconds on to a top speed of 275 km/h.
Xenatec is said to be considering a sportier version of this car if there’s demand for it. The car will be sold in Asia, Middle East, US and Russia and it will come with a 4-year warranty that will be honoured by Maybach authorised dealers. Only 100 will be produced and prices are expected to start from 650,000 euros.
