Even though the Maybach Exelero coupe received a lot of attention from consumers and the media, the Mercedes-Benz uber-luxury brand never put it into production (or even limited production). In fact, the Exelero was a one-off model commissioned by Fulda Tyres. Fulda used the car as a reference vehicle to test a new generation of wide tires. The Exelero even popped up in Jay-Z’s video for his song Lost One.
While Maybach won’t be doing a coupe anytime soon (or never, depending on whether they stick around or not), German-based engineering specialist Xenatec will. The firm is building 100 examples of a Maybach 57S coupe at £560,000 ($807,265 USD) a piece.
Daimler is all-go for the project and will be supplying 57 chassis from its Sindelfingen based manufacturing headquarters.
Power will come from the same 6.0L twin-turbo V12 making 612-hp and 737 lb-ft of torque.
