Just when you thought the brand couldn’t go any further the stratoshphere, Stuttgart goes and a new 100-strong limited edition. The new Zeppelin versions of the 57 and 62 limo an old badge from the 1930s, as as the airship pioneered by Count von Zeppelin at the turn of the twentieth

The 2009-spec Maybach 57 and 62 Zeppelins an opinion-dividing contrasting paint interior tricks galore – and a ‘world first sophisticated atomiser’. That claim a lot about Maybach, no?

Zeppelin ballooning power outputs

are huge lardy limos, so has tuned up the 6.0-litre twin-turbo in the 57 and 62 to develop an extra 28bhp, now 631bhp and 737lb ft of oceanic New 20-inch wheels help the thrust to the tarmac, but there are few mechanical changes.

And what of that duo-tone Mercedes calls the contrasting shoulderline Rocky Mountains Brown (sounds like to us; we had to check that wasn’t an Fool’s joke!) which alongside the Taiga black of the rest of the bodywork. Naturally, can deviate from these tones and spec the Zeppelin in the of their choosing.

Other visual distinguishing include smaller, more door mirrors that are to reduce wind rustle, and Zeppelin lettering below the Maybach badge. Inside, the is furnished in sheik-spec with carpets, diamond-quilted seat partition screen in the 62 and Zepp-inscribed flutes.

CAR finds it hard to do other than laugh at the £3500 perfume atomiser; can apparently drop in a vial of preferred fragrance, which is pumped gently into the at the touch of a button – by Jeeves up or via a thumbwheel at the back until nostrils can take no more. specialist Givaudan has even two scents for the Zeppelin – ‘one and refreshing, the other slightly and woodier’. It won’t be the first the Maybach’s got up our nose.

The Maybach Zeppelin goes on in March 2009, first kick off in September and German start at £365,000 for the 57 and £425,000 for the 62. And before VAT.
