Xenatec Maybach Cruiserio coupe to be produced for Saudi Arabia


For the first time live, the first Maybach 57S Coupe, called the Cruiserio, made its debut at Daimler headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany. The coupe is now up for sale in Saudi Arabia.

The venture is actually being underwritten by a €70 million ($93M) investment from AutoKingdom of Saudi Arabia. During the period of three years, Xenatec and AutoKingdom anticipate making 100 units.

The Cruiserio is created by Xenatec, which was designed by Burch Fred Hardt. The design is based on the Maybach 57S coupe that features a sporty, conservative appearance.

Much of the mechanical features remain the same on the Cruiserio. It is powered by the same 6.0-liter V12 engine with 603 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. This allows the coupe to accelerate from 0-62 mph in five seconds, and with a top speed of 171 mph. Xenatec claims the coupe has an average fuel consumption of 14.2 mpg US.

Production of the Xenatec Cruiserio is limited to only 100 units. It will have a starting price at €675,000 ($892,455). Check out the video below of the Xenatec Maybach Cruiserio coupe cruising around town in Montecarlo.
