In the past we’ve heard several times that Mayback wasn’t really doing well, and that biggest competitor Rolls-Royce is doing fantastic. Just when we first mentioned that, Maybach came with their Landaulet. Apparently business started to go well again and that’s confirmed again by the introduction of the Maybach 57 & 62 Zeppelin. The real fans of Maybach will remember this version from back in 1928, when the first Maybach Zeppelins were produced.
Both the 57 and 62 Zeppelin have a 6.0 V12 Twin Turbo engine in the nose producing 640 bhp together with 1000 Nm of torque that is good for the strongest engine in the Maybach range.
The special Maybach will be finished with several Zeppelin-badges, dark chromed 20 inch wheels, deep red back lights and a special exhaust system. The interior gets California Beige leather going together with black paint. As nice extra you get a set of special champagne glases, just in case you should need them!
The Zeppelin will be built in a limited edition of 100 cars and will first be shown at the International Motor Show of Geneva, starting in about 3 weeks. Prices start from € 406,000.
Will it crash and burn the same way as hindenburg?
