A new ultraluxury player is in town and AutoKingdom, a dealer in Saudi Arabia is the first to offer the Xenatech Maybach 57S Coupe to buyers who have the means to fork out the $943,000 for such a car. Designed by Burch Fred Hardt, the new coupe, called the Cruiserio, “demonstrates a vision for design and production which AutoKingdom shares with the two German companies. This vision is the result of intellectual cooperation,” said Waleed Abdullah Al-Hokair, Chariman of AutoKingdom. The Coupe shares the same platform as the sedan, but it is wider and lower. Depending on the customer, the car is shod with 20- or 21-inch rims and benefits from the Maybach facelift. Like standard Maybach offerings, the Xenatec coupe offers a complete four-year unlimited mileage warranty and a four-year service & repair package.
At the heart of the Cruiserio is a 6.0 liter V12 unit that delivers 612 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. The engine provides the power to accelerate the car to 100 km/h in 5 seconds, and brings it to a top speed of 275 kilometers per hour.
Only 100 units of the car will be produced, which guarantees a very high degree of exclusivity in today’s world of mass-produced cars. Current orders already account for the next 9-12 months of production for this exclusive ultraluxury coupe.
