Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6

 

Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6.

I Have Seen The Future.

The abundance of breathtaking automobile restoration and masterful design on display at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this year was astounding. I was nearly knocked over by the Vision Mercedes-Mayback 6, a slash of deep ruby red parked on the famed concept lawn where the future seems to be on display. In the words of Mercedes-Benz “the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, a concept sensational luxury-class 2 plus 2 coupe pays homage to the glorious age of the aero coupes and consciously carries this tradition forward into the future. The coupe reinterprets classic, emotional design principles in an extreme way, following the Mercedes design philosophy of sensual purity.” The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is large side, measuring an aggressive 18-feet long. This electric car it will go from 0-62 mph in less than four seconds and the battery the range will be just over 200 miles according to the EPA.

From its elongated hood to is low roof line this Mercedes futuristic style is a technological reinterpretation of classic, aesthetic principles.

“Our sensational coupe, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, represents the ultimate in contemporary luxury. It is hot and cool,” states Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG. “With its intelligent appeal and reduced, technoid look, it perfectly embodies our design philosophy of sensual purity and our pursuit of aerodynamic efficiency.”

Mercedes-Maybach stands for the ultimate in exclusivity and individuality. The  Mercedes-Maybach S600 is available now and the Mercedes-Maybach S550 4MATIC, which blend the perfection of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class with the exclusivity of Maybach is coming to the US fall 2016. Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6.
