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.Read more Read less
The Maybach Landaulet brings back a body style not seen since the earliest decades of the automotive age, one intended to be driven by a chauffeur. The front cabin is closed off from the rear passenger compartment by a glass partition, and the cloth top above the passengers can open. The roof over the driver is fixed. The engine is Maybach's most powerful, as the car is based on the sportier, long-wheelbase 62 S. The interior is the best Maybach has to offer, which is quite a lot, from leather over everything to separate Bluetooth connections for front and rear compartments.
The ultimate in chauffeured driving; one-of-a-kind revival of a classic body style; Mercedes-Benz' most powerful engine in Maybach's most luxurious car
While you do get a lot for your money, $1,380,000 is still a lot of money. Nearly every conceivable automotive wish is fulfilled in the built-to-order Landaulet as part of the standard equipment, including a Bose surround-sound system and ambient lighting. The value of riding in complete, chauffeur-driven comfort behind tinted glass or curtains -- your choice -- may be incalculable.
