For 2009, the Maybach Landaulet ultra-luxury convertible is released, featuring a retractable soft-top roof cover over the rear-seat passengers, which is power-button controlled from the front-seat controls, thus providing open-air rear seating, while the chauffeur's compartment and controls remain fully enclosed. Thanks to the twin turbochargers and water intercooling system, the 6.0L V12 engine can blast 604 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque, which as paired to the five-speed automatic transmission with overdrive can achieve 0-60 in 5.2 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph. EPA-estimated fuel economy is 10 mph city/16 mph hwy. Maybach Landaulet standard features provide exceptional handling dynamics and directional stability as equipped with the ESP® Electronic Stability Program, ASR acceleration skid control, AIRMATIC Dual Control air suspension and exclusive 11-spoke, 20-inch wheels. Top-of-the-line safety equipment is also standard. Normally seating two in the rear, the Maybach Landaulet offers seating for three in the back as an option.
