This is the ultimate luxury coupe that we're never going to get.
It's likely that you're already well-versed in all the ins and outs of the new Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept car. Teasers revealing the vehicle's considerable size have been circulating around the web for some time now, and the car in all its glory was leaked a few days before its official unveiling. But the Mercedes-Maybach 6 is still an incredible piece of kit and the automaker has just released details regarding its engine and official measurements. So yes, we're going to talk about it one more time.
The sheer size of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is justification enough to wax lyrically about this impressive concept car. At 18.7 feet long and 6.9 feet wide (for reference, a Mercedes-Maybach S600 is about a foot shorter and just as broad), the Mercbach has considerable presence even through a desktop monitor. So one can only imagine how imposing this crimson concept car would be in the metal (more on that below). But it's not just about those elegant exterior details and the huge chrome grille. Underneath the sleek bodywork is an all-electric powertrain with 750 hp that can allegedly haul this huge grand tourer from 0 to 60 mph in under four seconds. Aside from the engine the incredibly futuristic wrap-around interior is a particular highlight.
What makes the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 even more intriguing is that, while the car itself will likely never spawn a production car, the technology it's showcasing is guaranteed to crop up in a future Merc model in the not too distant future. Of course they'll all be toned down considerably, but you can certainly expect aspects of the car's heads-up display features, autonomous drive systems, electric powertrain and overall design cues inside and out will be featured in Mercedes road cars at some point. Or, as Autocar is claiming, a new all-electric concept car that's set to be unveiled at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. Either way, keep a close eye on Mercedes-Benz for the time being.
While we're still waiting to see the concept car this weekend at Pebble Beach we do have this video courtesy of YouTuber Ruptly TV of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6's unveiling. Check it out and let us know if this car looks as good in the metal as it does in renderings.
