Maybach Cruiserio Coupe

If you’re in Geneva for the 2011 Motor Show (you lucky bastard), don’t look for the Xenatec Maybach Cruiserio Coupe on the show floor. Auto show introductions, after all, are for common vehicles, much like your doctor or (God forbid) your plumber would drive. Cars for the elite and fat of wallet should be debuted in a more exclusive setting, away from the chaos of the unwashed masses, and the the Xenatec Cruiserio Coupe certainly falls into this category. If you want a first hand look, head on over to the gardens of the “La Réserve” hotel and look for the specially constructed pavilion; that’s where you’ll find the Cruiserio, in a setting more befitting of the cars stature.

The coupe is currently a one-off, designed by Xenatec’s Fredrik Burchhardt for a customer with exquisite taste and a very, very large bank balance. The exterior features a matte brass and silver finish, specially applied to enhance the car’s flanks. Inside, the Cruiserio gets natural buffalo hide leather, trimmed with dark brown nappa leather, all hand-stitched by craftsmen. The footwells are trimmed in dark Alcantara, but the headliner is pure nappa leather; you’ll appreciate this when you’re not gazing skyward through the coupe’s panoramic roof. There’s no word on increased horsepower, so I’m guessing that this customer’s budget was spent on updating the interior and exterior of a conventional Maybach 57 S. Besides, the Maybach 57 S’ 604 horsepower and 738 ft lb of torque are probably sufficient to get you the racquet club in time for your squash game.

The Cuiserio is currently one of one, but Xenatec is more than willing to build additional copies based on your own specifications. They aren’t mentioning a price, but if that’s even a question, you’re probably not the type of client that Xenatec does business with anyway.

  1. I guess this car was not meant for me; I always need to know the price. I guess I’ll have to join the common people at the L.A car show. Even the Geneva one is too expensive for me.
