This is the Maybach coupe, a £560,000 limited edition production by German based enginering specialist Xenatec.
The Bentley Brooklands and Roll-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe rival, which will ride on the same underpinnings and be powered by the same engine as the Maybach 57S, is planned to be built in a limited run of 100 cars at the company’s workshop in Weinsberg, Germany.
The project has the blessing of Maybach parent company, Daimler, which has carefully followed the car’s development and will supply built up 57S chassis from its nearby Sindelfingen based manufacturing headquarters.
Depicted here in a series of official sketches issued by Xenatec, the Maybach coupe is set to receive a bespoke body that, while retaining its sedan sibling’s 5730mm length, has been widened considerably to 2180mm and lowered to around 1480mm.
Secrecy surrounds the originator of the new car’s design, although Daimler does not deny its in-house styling department, headed by Gorden Wagener, has had a hand in its contemporary appearance.
