Anyone want a Maybach Coupe?


Maybach doesn’t exactly scream the word coupe. In fact, they barely even whisper it. The only coupe ever designed and produced by Maybach was the Exelero back in 2005 and that production ceased after one unit. The coupe was commissioned by Fulda Tyres to test a new generation of wider tires and then it just ceased to exist. And although the Exelero died even before it moved on to see the world, Group Xenatec has decided that the coupe would no longer be dead in the water. In fact, starting in July, Group Xenatec will roll out the first Maybach coupe to their customers. Now, who is Group Xenatec? That is a very good question. Group Xenatec is a group who specializes in developing special vehicles, be it only one vehicle or a small series of a special vehicle. They handle sedans, sports cars, and heavy trucks. Their next "project" will be a Maybach Coupe.

The Maybach Coupe will be developed in close cooperation with Daimler and will be limited to only 100 units. The design will be based off the Maybach 57S , but, obviously with some modifications. The coupe models will feature modified A-, B-and C-pillars, doors and front fenders and rear sections. The cars will sit on 20" alloy wheels with new design (21" will come as an option). The coupe will obviously be a two door model, but it will be able to seat 4.

Under the hood there will be a 612 hp and 1,000 Nm strong six-liter twin turbo V12 engine as found in the Maybach 57S. The sprint from 0 to 62 mph will be made in 5 seconds and top speed will go up to 170 mph.

The Maybach Coupe will be priced at around € 650,000 and will be destined to customers in Middle and Far East, the USA, and Russia.

I don’t think I can afford it. It’s too expensive.

Lovely looking car but it looks heavy and quite longer than the regular luxury coupe.

Long and hood and swoopy roofline - good stuff. And, this look will get less common with the push for smaller displacements.

Huh? maybach coupe? Isn’t that the maybach is a luxury car? Making a 2 door out of a luxury car would ruine it’s comfort and luxury because getting at the back would be hard because you have to fold the front seats first.

I think 100 might be wishful thinking especially given that the brand is being discontinued. Of course at this price point and being such a
low volume, anything is possible. Perhaps some multi-billionaire will decide to buy all 100 to give out as party favors! smiley
