Xenatec Maybach 57S Coupe: full details, photos and specs

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 12, 2010

Xenatec officially revealed today its brand new coupe based on the Maybach 57 S limousine. As you may know already, Maybach is one of the finest cars ever built, but the new Xenatec Coupe promises to bring it to another level of customization. Priced at €675,000 excluding taxes, the new car will be built in a very limited number and only by hand in Germany, for discerning clients worldwide.

The car has been designed by Fredrik Burchhardt, creator of the dramatic Exelero (a joint Fulda Tyre Company/Maybach project in 2004-2005) and already surpassed the highest expectations. The new Xenatec Coupe brings major improvements to the interior and the bodywork, but none to the drivetrain.

Comparing it to the Maybach 57 S limousine, the new car received major changes to the immensely strong bodywork, which has been completely redesigned and engineered.

The new car features new doors allowing for easy access to the rear passenger compartment, as well as new windscreen and rear screen which are more steeply raked for a sporty silhouette. Xenatec also offers an optional full glass roof.

The car features completely new front and rear bumpers, as well as new side panels and front and rear fenders. The rear track has been increased by 20 mm. The design is completed by the 20-inch wheels but customers can also buy the optional 21-inch wheels.

Under the hood, the car is powered by an impressive V12 engine capable to deliver 621 hp (612 PS/463 kW) and 100 Nm of torque or 737 lb-ft. This engine pushes the car to a top speed of 275 km/h (172 mph) and delivers a fuel consumption of 9.6 mpg in the city (24.6 l/100 km) and 21.4 mpg on the highway (11.8 l/100 km). CO2 emissions delivered by the engine are 390 g/km.

Press Release

Maybach Xenatec Coupé

Xenatec is pleased to announce the launch of the Maybach Xenatec Coupé built by the Karosserie Manufaktur Weinsberg - a division of Xenatec Group - in cooperation with Maybach.

Created in 2002, the Maybach is undoubtedly one of the finest cars ever built. A powerful combination of state of the art technology, superior driving performance and opulent use of the finest materials places the Maybach in a league of its own.

Based upon the Maybach 57S limousine, this dynamic interpretation of driver-oriented luxury sets new standards in terms of exclusivity - a very limited number of the Xenatec Coupé will be built by hand in Germany for discerning clients worldwide, and will be offered at an ex-works price of € 675,000 excluding taxes.

The Maybach Xenatec Coupé was designed by Fredrik Burchhardt, creator of the dramatic Exelero (a joint Fulda Tyre Company/Maybach project in 2004-2005), to surpass the highest expectations - fulfilling the needs of those who prefer to savour the Maybach experience from the driver's seat, enjoying the thrill of being at the helm of a high-performance flagship for the discerning connoisseur. A technical masterpiece offering uncompromised comfort together with ample space and superior agility.

The evolution from limousine to coupé has involved major changes to bodywork and interior, but none to the drivetrain - and to the already impressive performance - of the Maybach 57S upon which the Xenatec Coupé is based.

Compared to the Maybach 57S limousine, major changes have been also made to the immensely strong bodywork, which has been completely redesigned and engineered and features new doors allowing for easy access to the rear passenger compartment.

The windscreen and rear screen are more steeply raked for a sporty silhouette, lowering the roofline without compromising passenger comfort. A full glass roof can be fitted if desired, as can almost all other options available for the Maybach 57S.

The doors and side panels as well as the front and rear fenders are new, as are the front and rear bumpers. Rear track is increased by 20 mm, and the standard 20-inch wheels allow for a marvellously supple ride whilst the optional 21-inch wheels sharpen handling to sports car levels - bringing the Maybach experience to the driver's seat.

Every single car will be built to individual customer specification and handcrafted in Germany. The opportunities for personalisation, even extending to armouring the car, are almost boundless.
