Maybach 57S Cruiserio Coupe

Inspired from the Maybach 57 S, the new XENATEC Coupe, named Cruiserio, will be presented at the Geneva International Auto Salon. The configuration was made by Fredrik Burchhardt and includes a hand painting, some high end technology and a perfect craftsmanship.

The layered painting is creating a shimmering brass tone effect and has a silver strip on the flanks. The hand painted art is a signature of XENATEC available on all Maybach models. The interior of Maybach 57S Cruiserio Coupe is also unique, having an amazing combination of colors and materials. It has natural buffalo hide, dark nappa leather, mid-brown leather and espresso brown leather, gathered together in a perfect equilibrium. The interior has also been hand painted by artists of XENATEC. A warm blackberry color is covering the Alcantara footwalls and the leather that can be found around the seats.

Geneva is host to first public appearance of the XENATEC Coupe based on the Maybach 57 S

For the first time, XENATEC is presenting a customer-specified XENATEC-Coupe (so called: Cruiserio) based on the Maybach 57 S to coincide with the 81st International Auto Salon in Geneva from March 1st through 6th. The presentation of the car, which will take place in a specially constructed pavilion in the gardens of "La Reserve" Hotel on the banks of Lake Geneva, also marks its world premiere.

The coupe was configured by XENATEC designer Fredrik Burchhardt to customer specifications and then built exclusively for him. The paintwork on this one-off is a matte finish applied by hand in several layers to create a shimmering brass tone. The overall paint finish is completed by a delicate silver along the vehicle's flanks. This particular stylistic treatment - a hallmark of all Maybach automobiles - is the final touch to the work of art that is the XENATEC-Coupe and utterly unparalleled worldwide.

To sum up - designed by artists, manufactured for connoisseurs.

The interior is utterly exclusive, created from a stunning combination of buffalo hide in its natural, non-dyed mid-brown and dark nappa leather in espresso brown, all hand-stitched by master craftsmen. The vehicle footwells are lined entirely in soft Alcantara? finished in a warm blackberry tone. The same "blackberry" tone is also used as a contrasting color for the leather piping around the seats. The overall effect is further enhanced by the headliner finished in nappa leather to create a stunning contrast in this uniquely sumptuous feast of color, which is beautifully displayed at all times thanks to the custom-built panorama roof.

To sum up - the highest form of individualization, executed with perfect craftsmanship.
