The incredible Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 recently made its debut at Pebble Beach, California and devoted classic car fans gathered to experience the finest of classic automobiles.
Where else would serve as the ideal venue to showcase this luxury-class coupé. This 2+2 seater’s design hearkens to a bygone era of magnificent aero coupés yet purposefully transports it into the future. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 boasts impressive dimensions (length/width/height: 5700/2100/1328 millimetres) and is the first luxury coupé in the series of visionary design show cars from Mercedes-Benz.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, which is designed as an electric car, features all-wheel drive due to its four compact permanent magnet synchronous electric motors, with the unique drive system allowing typical sports car performance. (acceleration from 0‑100 km/h in under four seconds)
Driving-related data and geographical information are shown across the full width of the panoramic front windscreen, and its transparent display can be controlled and adjusted by the occupants using gestures. The dashboard wing curves across the door trim into the seating landscape, creating a stunning 360° lounge.
The sitting surface forms a horizontal, which transitions into the vertical of the doors and finally becomes the underside of the dashboard wing. In the doors and dashboard, the traditional wood trim softens the appearance of the digital control and display interfaces. As a contrast to the digital world of the displays, elm is used in the floor area, creating a refined yachting look.
Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG states. “With its intelligent appeal and reduced, technoid look, it perfectly embodies our design philosophy of sensual purity and our pursuit of aerodynamic efficiency.”
