Xenatec spices up the Maybach 57 S

Given the fact Mercedes-Benz is far from being interested in developing the lineup of its Maybach ultra-luxury brand, the Stuttgart-based constructor has partnered with Xenatec, a Germany-established company which produces special purpose vehicles, to create a special version of the 57 S model.

Prepare to be amazed:the car will be a coupe. The exterior design will be completely reshaped in what the A, B and C pillars are concerned;this will most certainly offer the new Maybach a slim, dynamic and upscale silhouette. The car will retain its overall length and wheelbase, but its styling will be further enhanced by the addition of new front and rear bumpers, which feature revamped air intakes and respectively, modified diffuser and exhaust pipes. The standard "shoes" of the coupe will measure 20 inches, with the possibility of opting for 21-inches ones instead.

The new 57 S Coupe will be powered by a 6.0 liters biturbo V12 engine, capable of delivering a staggering output of 630 BHP. With the help of it, the car will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5 seconds, whereas the top speed is expected to reach around 275-280 km/h.

The new Maybach model will be built in a limited edition of just 100 examples, each one priced at a highly prohibitive 650,000 euros tag. From our point of view, the new 57 S Coupe is tipped for being officially unveiled at the Mondial de l'Automobile in Paris, with a release of preliminary data and photos somewhere after mid-2010, in full summer time.
