2007 Mercedes-Benz Concept Ocean Drive

It's little surprise that the company that offers the Maybach as a landaulet — a sedan with a hardtop roof over the front seat and a soft top over the rear seat — would offer up another old body style: the convertible sedan. It may be a model from bygone days, but this car's 517-horsepower V-12 ensures modern-era performance. Why wasn't it built? According to Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche, this body style can't meet federal side-impact standards.
