Compared with the likes of Bentley and Rolls-Royce, Maybach hasn't exactly been a runaway success. But those few fans of the über-Benz brand may be familiar with a company by the name of Xenatec.
This past May, Xenatec announced a partnership with Maybach to convert their four-door limousine into a two-door coupe, and the results have now been revealed. In order to carry out the conversion, Xenatec hired Fredrink Burchhardt, the same designer who penned the Maybach Exelero coupe. Together they chopped down the roof, replaced four doors with two, modified the bodywork, raked the windshields, and modified the interior. The same 612-horsepower twin-turbo V12 carries over from the top-spec Maybach, and buyers can specify a glass roof, 20 or 21-inch wheels and even armor plating.
Only 100 examples will be made, each built to order and fetching 675,000 euros apiece.
