NEW FOR 2010:

– New 57 Zeppelin and 62 Zeppelin models
– New Landaulet model

For 2010, the Maybach lineup includes new models: a Landaulet soft-top, and new 57 Zeppelin and 62 Zeppelin models, which are based on the 57S and 62S models, but with more powerful engines, with only 100 planned for production.

The premier nameplate in the Mercedes-Benz stable, the Maybach 57 and 62 models are named for their lengths of 5.7 and 6.2 metres, respectively. The 57 and 62 models use a 5.5-litre V12 engine with twin turbochargers. The 57S and 62S models use a turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 engine and a stiffer performance suspension. The Zeppelin models also use the turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 engine but tuned for additional power. All use a five-speed automatic transmission.

Each Maybach is built to customer specifications, with appointments including a leather-covered dashboard, rear seat refrigerator, remote-activated memory seats, television receiver, heated and ventilated seats with massage function, folding rear-seat tables, rear window curtains, two telephones, and individual front and rear automatic climate control systems.

The Landaulet includes a seven-layer black cloth roof.

The Zeppelin models add exclusive Chrome Shadow 20-inch wheels, dark red taillights, special tailpipe trim, a Zeppelin-specific hood ornament, Taiga Black and Rocky Mountains Brown paint scheme, Zeppelin trunk and engine badges, champagne flutes, fragrance dispenser, drawer with glass fragrance bottles, and an available "One of 100" lettering on specified interior trim.
