Precisely a month back we told you that Maybach was on the verge of closing down due to gloomy sales and dropping demand. But brushing that news aside, Daimler today revealed the Maybach Landaulet, an open-top version of its Maybach 62 S. Now this fresh bolt from the blue information will put smiles back on the faces of those who swear by this brand. The Maybach 62 Landaulet is directly inspired by the 1939 Maybach SW 42 Landaulet. Only 20 of them will be made to raise the bar of its exclusivity. The Landaulet version features a folding roof for passengers, so you can drop the top like a convertible, detailed out gold specked granite inserts, all black leather front cabin, while the rear passenger cabin is all white. The side walls remain and have been reinforced with an integral tubular steel structure. As these measures have not altered the silhouette of the luxury saloon, the complete interior with its reclining seats remains unchanged. When closed the black soft-top of the Landaulet rests on the frame formed by the roof bows, and is wind and weather-proof. And all these stylish roof businesses takes place in just 16 seconds!

The Maybach Landaulet study is powered by the uprated V12 engine that Maybach engineers developed for the Maybach 57 S and Maybach 62 S. Thanks to twin turbochargers and water intercooling, the V12 develops a maximum output of 612 hp and 738 pound-feet of torque.
