1 of 8 Mercedes-Maybach 57S Coupes is up for sale, previously owned by Muammar Gaddafi

A rare Maybach 57S Coupe built for Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi is up for sale through Dutch dealer Autoleitner, with an asking price of $1.16 million.

First spotted by Motor1, the two-door Maybach is one of eight produced by coachbuilder Xenatec. When the Maybach brand was first revived in 2002, the factory only offered a single four-door sedan model in standard-wheelbase 57 and long-wheelbase 62 guises, plus sportier S versions of both. Maybach did build the gothic Exelero coupe concept, but that never went into production.
