A German engineering firm has revealed this £586,000 Maybach 57S-based Xenatec Coupe.

Previously only seen in a series of official sketches, the car has been created for “those who prefer to savour the Maybach experience from the driver's seat”.

The Xenatec Coupe, created with the blessing of Daimler, will be limited to 100 hand-built units. Its underpinnings are the same as the 57S, as is its twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 engine, but substantial changes have been made to its bodywork, which has been redesigned and reengineered.

The doors have been modified to allow for easy access for rear passengers, while the front and rear screens have been steeply raked to provide the coupe profile “without compromising passenger comfort”. A full glass roof is optional.

It features the front-end styling changes of the recently facelifted Maybach range, albeit with new front and rear bumpers and wings.

The car’s rear track has also been widened by 20mm; 20-inch alloys are standard, with 21-inch alloys being optional.

It's not that ugly; it just looks like a really big CLK.

Do you think it is the longest car ever to only have two doors?
