Maybach only built rolling chassis, which were all bodied by many independant coachbuilders, but the nearby Karosserie Spohn, in nearby Ravensburg, bodied most of the Zeppelins. Very few were built in this closed limousine style. The 1930 car pictured here started life as a four-seat cabriolet, but was rebodied in 'limosine' style just a few years later. The "7" or "8" in the name refers to the engine size, seven or eight liters.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
