Maybach 57 S Coupe by Xenated debuts in Geneva, but not at the show

The new Maybach 57 S-based coupe is going to make its first public appearance at Geneva, but as strange as it may sound, the location will not be the Palexpo center, where the Geneva Motor Show will be held, but a pavilion in the gardens of "La Reserve" hotel, located on the banks of Lake Geneva. The company has not confirmed yet whether this decision is somehow related with Maybach being present at the show. The displayed car will be a customer-specified model, which was configured by Fredrik Burchardt, the Xenatec designer, and was built exclusively for him. A special effect is created by the car's two-tone paintwork with its matte finish applied by hand in special layers. A thin gray line separates the main colors, just like Maybach limousines, while the finest craftsmanship defines the interior, with upholstery made of mid-brown buffalo hide combined with dark nappa leather, all hand-stitched. Nappa leather was used for the finish of the headliner, while the owner specified Alcantara lining for the footwells. The same 6.0-liter V12 engine from the Maybach 57 S delivers 612HP, 1,000 Nm of torque and provides a top speed of 275 km/h, with an average fuel consumption of 16.4 lt/100km. It is expensive and it looks expensive, featuring a starting price of EUR675,000, before taxes.
