The Maybach Landaulet study is likely to be unveiled at the Dubai auto show later this month. The convertible is based on the 62 S Saloon.

"The one-off Maybach Landaulet study lets passengers enjoy the open-air via a retractable roof that electro-hydraulically disappears into the rear-parcel shelf in 16 seconds, leaving the reinforced rear windows in place and the chauffeur's compartment completely enclosed," Giz Mag wrote.

"The all white â€" from the wheels to front white indicators and the seychelles white leather appointed interior - luxury Maybach Landaulet is powered by the uprated, twin-turbocharged V12 engine that develops a maximum output of 450 kW/612 hp from a displacement of 5980 cubic centimetres."

The big question is if the ragtop Maybach, which oozes opulence and is designed to be chauffeur driven, will make it into production. Stats for White Hot Luxury Convertible Trending: Older & Average
