Maybach Coupe by Xenatech - BBC TopGear
Difficult one this. The Maybach 57S leans towards the tacky, favoured by gentlemen who carry diamond-encrusted canes and wear slightly baggy trousers. But this, well, this might be slightly better…
Using a complicated shaping process called ‘de-disgustification’, Xenatech has taken what originally resembled metal-vomited-onto-a-platter to produce 100 two-door coupes. It also comes in other colours, helpfully.
Xenatech - reportedly with help from Daimler - chopped the roof of the Maybach 57S, widened the track and moved the B and C pillars to accommodate the doors. Power comes courtesy of Mercedes’ 6-litre twin turbo V12 churning out a mighty 612bhp, enough to propel the coupe from 0-62mph in around five seconds.
Ah yes, you’re wondering, how many novelty rap CDs would I have to record to afford one of these fine items? Quite a few, considering it costs just over £550,000.
