We got our first ‘real-life’ look at the Maybach 62 S Landaulet concept at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show last week. And if you are one of those that can afford a Maybach you may be excited to learn that Daimler AG has decided to make the 62S Landaulet concept a reality.
Speaking with German newspaper, Stuttgarter Zeitung, Klaus Mair, head of Mercedes-Benz Cars marketing, said that the car is now set to go into serial production.
“The car on display was already sold last night,” he was quoted as saying. “The Landaulet will expand the Maybach product line and draw a lot of attention to the brand,” he added.
Wonder who bought that? Anyway, Mair did not say how many units Mercedes-Benz Cars will built but said it will cost around 800,000 euros ($1.19 million) and up. The Maybach 62 S Landaulet is powered by a 6.0L V12 engine with twin turbochargers that produces 612 horsepower.
