What If Maybach Made A Luxurious Coupe Crossover?

/ Comments

The render artist was clearly inspired by the Maybach Vision 6 Concept.

Last month, Mercedes-Maybach unveiled the Ultimate Luxury Concept, and it's safe to say its peculiar looks received a mix reaction. The quirky SUV concept is designed to preview Maybach's upcoming version of the Mercedes GLS, but the design was a weird hybrid incorporating the notchback rear-end of a sedan with the body of an SUV. As a result, it looked like a sedan on stilts, rather than an SUV. This prompted render artists to change the styling and make the Ultimate Luxury Concept look more like a conventional SUV.

In this latest reinterpretation of the opulent SUV, artist Dongwon Lee has envisioned what would happen if Maybach decided to attract younger buyers with a sporty coupe crossover. Blending the bold design of the Maybach Vision 6 Concept with elements from the Mercedes S-Class and GLE Coupe, the resulting three-door crossover is dominated by Maybach's huge grille and features large air intakes in the front bumper. It also has widened fenders, a sloping roofline and large wheels. A huge air intake dominates the side profile, while from the rear we can see a double-bubble roof and split windshield. Adding to the SUV's striking design is a massive diffuser and a double light strip adorning the entire width of the rear.

The artist hasn't produced any images of what the hypothetical crossover would look like inside, but we would imagine it would adopt a 2+2 seat layout. Mercedes-Maybach will eventually launch its first ever SUV to rival the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Let's just hope it looks less like the hideous Ultimate Luxury Concept and more like this artist's creation.
