Never before has a car promised such an impressive combination of supercar looks and performance paired with unrivalled luxury. This is Xentac’s vision of the ultimate Maybach 57S. Already given the go-ahead by the Daimler owned company, it appears Maybach has no problem handing over the reigns to the specialist German engineering firm who will make the necessary changes to turn the four-door limo into a two-door sports coupe.
Developed in close cooperation with Maybach, the complicated modification process will mean that the A-, B- and C-columns all need to be redesigned. The biggest changes being made to the B-column which needs to be moved back by 200mm. Other big differences will include the sharper raked roofline, restyled front and rear ends, and body that has had to be widened. The overall wheelbase of the car will remain the same though, measuring a lengthy 3.39m. Newly designed 20- or even 21-inch alloy wheels will also be available.
Under the bonnet the coupe will remain to get its power from the Mercedes sourced 6.0-litre bi-turbocharged V12. Delivering 617bhp, 0-62mph will take only 5.0 seconds, with a top speed of close to 170mph.
Xentac are planning on producing only 100 versions of the 57S built and expect a hefty price tag of around £575,000 to accompany.
