2009 Maybach 57 Zeppelin and 62 Zeppelin revealed - Maybach - Zeppelin

At a time when most people are just trying to make ends meet, Maybach will launch a new model at the top of the high-end luxury sedan segment. Limited to only 100 units, the Maybach 57 Zeppelin and Maybach 62 Zeppelin will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

Maybach claims "the name 'Zeppelin' has an incomparable ring to it in the realm of high-end luxury cars." However, most would instead think of "Led Zeppelin" the 70s rock band from England or even the famous Hindenburg Zeppelin that went down in a ball of flames and ended the use of the airships in 1937.

Nevertheless, Maybach celebrates the Zeppelin name by plastering it all over the vehicle. It can be found on the hood emblem, trunk, front center console, partition screen (available as an option on the 62 Zeppelin), standard silver champagne flutes, door sill panels, as well as on the key ring.

Maybach insists the Zeppelin is more than just a fancy trim package. The sedan's the 6.0 liter V-12 biturbo power plant comes from the 57S and 62S and delivers 640 hp,  up 28 hp from the standard model.  Outside, there is an available two-tone special paint finish, dark red taillights, 20-inch "Chrome Shadow" wheels, and streamlined exterior mirrors that produce less wind noise.
