German coachbuilder, Xenatec, gets its kicks from making short cars
long, long cars short, and long cars even longer. This is evident in their many zany interpretations, including their transformations for the Audi R8 and the Porsche 911. But their craziest package is yet to come with the Maybach Cruiserio Coupe, developed by Daimler and Saudi-based Auto Kingdom. There will only be 100 units built at a price of $940,000.

"The new Cruiserio coupe demonstrates a vision for design and production which AutoKingdom shares with the two German companies. This vision is the result of intellectual cooperation. The new generation features an advanced and ultra-elegant design by the most experienced and skilled automobile engineers and specialists who have deep knowledge of the demands of owners of luxury cars and their vision for an ultra-luxurious car which surpasses all what they saw in the past and is set to beat what they could see in the future."

The Cruiserio Coupe is powered by a V12 engine with an output of 605 HP and a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 5.0 seconds, while top speed hits the 170 mph mark. Pretty amazing numbers considering we’re talking about a 5.7 meter luxury coupe.

UPDATE 12/29/2010: Well, it didn’t take long for the luxury ride to find its way into dealerships. We recently got word that the very first model of the Xenatec Maybach 57S Coupe is now being put up for sale by AutoKingdom, a luxury car dealer in Saudi Arabia for al ittle less than a million dollars. Incidentally, AutoKingdom is one of only two companies outside of Germany that has been given the rights to sell the limited-run vehicle with the other dealership being Russia’s ArmorTech Group.

This coupe is not really looks good with its exterior detailing, but it looks very decent on its sleek body paint. Anyway, I’m so impressed on its V12 engine, which had an output of 605 hp.

Yeah! It is really the craziest packaged of the Maybach! Imagine, who is going to buy this coupe, which had a cost of $$940,000? Well, I think those lunatic people only would really afford to throw that kind of huge amount!

605 horsepower is quite impressive on this Cruiserio coupe and I bet the price of this one of its market production will be too expensive. As for the looks of this coupe, I must say that it really don’t look like a luxury car but the name itself prove that I’m wrong. smiley

Very bachelor type of car, so formal and very business type car. Well Maybach are good in this specification of car, luxury as always.

Hmm. I think the v12 technology that used in this car produced a less powerful output! Well, as expected this car comes in a higher price tag.

Well, I have to say that it has an impressive speed performance as well as its styling! Aside from that the car has an elegant design and accessories.

Is it only me or this car looks identical with Roll Royce Phantom? However, the power output of this car seems amazing for a luxury car. And its extremely wow since this car cost million in Saudi Arabia.

German cars on the middle east? Well, that’s wow! I think changes and upgrades is necessary to make the consumer get more excited!

In recently event of the year. Just a thought of hand that luxury cars is widely consider for wealthy individuals, And this is one thing that Maybach Cruiserio car is the one that ultra elegant and ultra luxurious car well made.

I really like the maybach for combining the luxury and classic look on this car. Everything is just simply awesome! But i just wonder what does v12 engine technology doing on this car? I don’t think that this luxury car needed a speed.

  (507) posted on 03.24.2011

I think the v12 engine is just a waste when put on this Maybach Coupe. Imagine, it hits 60 mph for 5 seconds. hence, other supercar that uses v8 can do that for only 3 seconds. I think they need to modified it correctly.

it does show the good quality of the their brand. But I rather get the CL65 or new Lambo Aventador for this pricetag.

This look a beautiful design and this is nicer! But I don’t like the rear end of this car and it looks so incomplete because they have cut off the headlights.

This car does look awesome! I have drove it once , and I totally understand the reason behind that enormous pricetag. The quality is absolutely perfect!

No wonder Daimler asked Aston Martin to rebuild Maybach brand, the Britons know how to build luxury cars and sell it even with the most stupid special editions like AM recently does.

  (427) posted on 02.14.2011

I really don’t think they’re going to sell 100 units even for 200,000€ each. It’s just over designed 57 sedan without rear door handles.
