It's more than capable.
The 2021 Mercedes-Maybach S was recently revealed, and we can't say that we're anything but impressed. It's a truly magnificent ode to ultimate opulence, and there's almost nothing on the planet that can compete. We've recently considered the possibility that Maybach may produce a rival to the Rolls-Royce Wraith and there's even a new SUV potentially in the works, but what about a wagon? Well, we've never thought about such a thing, but now that Oscar V, a concept artist with a penchant for creating realistic renders, has demonstrated what it might look like, we're a little bit intrigued by the idea. This could be the ultimate luxury road trip companion.
In the past, we've seen Oscar V take a stab at reinventing modern takes on the Ford Torino and the classic IROC-Z, but as the above post shows, he's pretty handy at making European machines look different too. What we love about this render is its simplicity, retaining original styling cues like the wheels, grilles, and two-tone color scheme. However, we must admit that we'd love to see what the rear could look like if this ever became a real thing. After all, the most important part of a wagon is the back, but even without seeing how it would look, the concept could have some beneficial merits that we'd love to explore.
For one thing, there's the obvious benefit of increased cargo space, but we doubt the uber-wealthy care much for practicality. We'd like to see the interior altered in a way that sits the rear seats even further back, thus allowing one to lay almost completely flat, as you would in a business class chair on a jet. This could also allow passengers to enjoy a large rear screen that could make the cabin feel like a home theater. Whatever the final configuration, this looks like a great way for Maybach to expand its product range. Alas, its blue-collar associations make the idea of a Maybach wagon nothing more than a fantasy.
