2011 Geneva Motor Show Preview: Xenatech Maybach 57S Cruiserio Coupe

The Xenatech Maybach 57S Cruiserio Coupe will make its world premiere at a special pavilion in the gardens of "La Reserve" Hotel on the banks of Lake Geneva at the same time as the start of the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The debut of this very expensive, well-crafted vehicle comes almost three months after the delivery of the first unit to a dealer in Saudi Arabia.

What makes this vehicle special is that it is the first new Maybach in a long time (even if it was custom built for an undisclosed customer) and also because of the fact that German coachbuilder Xenatech has an outstanding reputation.

The 57S is powered by a 6.0l V12 twin-turbo engine that boasts an output of 612hp and 737 lb-ft of maximum torque. The vehicle can reach a top speed of 171 mph/275 km/h and can sprint from zero to 60mph in 5 seconds.

Maybach gave its approval to Xenatech to build the Cruiserio, which also comes with the Maybach complete four-year unlimited mileage warranty and a four-year service & repair package.

And being a Maybach, the model is filled with high-end features and luxury accents. For example, its interior features buffalo hide in natural color and dark nappa leather. It also has a custom-built panorama roof. The Cruiserio has a price tag of GBP586,000 (EUR676,690 or $927,811).
