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 – 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.
