Premiere of Prototype at Pebble Beach, Maybach Steals the Show
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 captivated car enthusiasts at the annual Californian-based Concours d’Elegance. Delivering on both power and performance, this concept coupe amazingly achieves speeds similar to those seen on a sporty Mercedes-Benz SLS-Class. This exquisite, emission-free design cannot be faulted with its awesome appearance and abundance of fantastic features.
On August 16, the prestige Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 proudly made its first public appearance at the Monterey Peninsula Car Week. Providing the perfect prototype platform, the premiere proceeded to the picturesque and popular Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance. This stunning show car literally stole the show! Mercedes-Benz are renowned for producing high performance cars of the finest quality and this is extremely evident in the new Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6. From the very first glance, this coupe screams style, speed and sophistication. Cleverly created to capture certain classic design features, this sleek concept car comes complete with both traditional and modern-day comforts.
Measuring a massive 18 ft long and also much wider than most cars on the road, the exterior makes a mighty statement. The beautiful bodywork is specially shaped for optimum aerodynamic efficiency and the oversized 24 inch wheels from Concept IAA (Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile) also serve this purpose, while looking sensational. The rich red paintwork perfectly complements the chrome and aluminium trim. LED headlights provide the perfect finishing touch, ensuring this car remains eye-catching during daylight and darkness, even from a distance. Despite its large, luxurious frame, the all-wheel drive Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 reaches 0 to 60 mph in under 4.0 seconds while producing a hefty 750hp. This electric concept car unbelievably boasts a top speed of 155 mph, displaying power more commonly associated with a range of sport models. Using four electric motors, each powering one of the wheels, it produces zero emissions with a battery distance of more than 200 miles.
Luxury leather interior and wooden trim enhance the overall experience, ensuring quality and comfort for the driver and passengers. Futuristic-style body sensors monitor factors such as body temperature, heart-rate and light intensity, automatically adjusting seat position, temperature and lighting in response. To further impress, there is a touch control option providing each individual access to their personal data. The on-board computer really has the wow-factor. The data is displayed digitally on the windscreen and can be controlled with a variety of signals or sounds from anyone inside. To top it all off, tailor-made suitcases come with the car, compactly and cleverly stored inside the spacious compartments, with possible future additions to the custom-made accessory range.
This really is taking luxury to a whole new level! If you have already fallen in love with the almighty Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 then you may want to consider having a look at the current models available. Your choice includes the Mercedes-Maybach S 500 and the Mercedes-Maybach S 600 Guard, both from the 2015 line-up, or the top-of-the-range Mercedes- Maybach S 600 Pullman launched earlier this year. Whatever you choose, you are guaranteed the ultimate driving experience.
