You remember the Xenatec Maybach project, don't you? Who could forget: the German coachbuilder set out, with Daimler's approval, to turn the Maybach 57 S limousine into a two-door coupe. Now they've received additional funding (to the tune of €70 million) from a Saudi firm called AutoKingdom, and the finished product is entering production.
Dubbed the Cruiserio, the special Maybach made its debut at Daimler headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany. The coupe retains most of the parts of the saloon, including its 600+ horsepower twin-turbocharged V12 engine, but modifies much of the bodywork and swaps four doors for two larger ones.
Only 100 examples will be made with a €675,000 ($894k) price tag. But with a waiting list extending 9-12 months, if you want this particular example, it's available via JamesList from the Saudi capital of Riyadh for # € 715,000 (approximately $940k).
