The Landaulet 2009 first debuted as a concept variant at the Dubai auto show last year, and earlier on this year Maybach made the announcement of the production model. The Landaulet convertiblelike four-door will go on sale in America starting December at a cost of $1.35 million!

"The Landaulet is for a superrich individual who wants something that is extremely extraordinary and enjoys being driven in a car with acres of sky above them," said Hans-Dieter Multhaupt, the vice president of the program management for Maybach.

The Landaulet unit is designed as some chauffeur-driven limousine. The partial soft convertible top above the rear-seat passengers opens up from the B-pillar back so the passengers on the rear seat can be now seen and enjoy the weather, the sunshine.

The rear doors and side windows of the Maybach remain intact. The compartment of the driver is covered by nonremovable hard top. Multhaupt affirmed many of the Maybach Landaulet units "will be fitted with a glass panel that separates the driver and the passenger, like the cars of the past".
