Daimler revived the Zeppelin name with the introduction of the Maybach Zeppelin at the Geneva Motor Show on March 3rd earlier this year. This is also coincides with the last time WCF had anything worthy to report on Daimler's Luxury brand. Therefore an opportunity to see this batch of new photos was hardly going to be passed.
Based on the Maybach 57 S and 62 S the Zeppelin maintains the same 6.0-liter V12 biturbo engine producing 640hp (471kW) and 1,000Nm of torque. This represents an power boost of 28hp compared to the regular models.
Subtle upgrades help differentiate this special model. These include a set of twenty-inch wheels finished in chrome, dark red tail lights, a special two-tone paint finish, streamlined exterior mirrors and "Zeppelin" lettering on the grille emblem and silver champaign flutes are some of the car's distinguishing features.
Production is limited to just 100 units with pricing starting at €406,000 for the 57 Zeppelin and €473,200 for the longer 62 model.
