Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 revealed at Pebble Beach
After pictures leaked onto the internet earlier this week, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 has been officially revealed at Pebble Beach.
PEBBLE BEACH IN CALIFORNIA is becoming an increasingly important venue for luxury car makers to reveal concepts and limited-edition models. BMW revealed its 2002 Hommage model, and now the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 has broken cover at the event.
“The 2+2-seater is an homage to the glorious age of the aero coupés and consciously carries this tradition forward into the future. The coupé reinterprets classic, emotional design principles in an extreme way, following the Mercedes design philosophy of sensual purity,” Mercedes said in a statement.
Measuring a staggering six metres long, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is intended to be a fully electric car only. The drive system has an output of 550kW. The shallow underfloor-mounted battery allows a range of over 500km.
“Our glamorous coupé, 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.”
