Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet: Design Video & Photo Gallery


During Monterey Car Week the German purveyor of performance luxury released the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet to a group of media and owners at their Pebble Beach Villa on Poppy Lane last night. The glamorous cabriolet and electric car commingles intelligent beauty with classic, aesthetic proportions to produce 750 hp (550 kW) for a 200-mile range. Measuring almost 20 feet the luxury yacht sits on 24” light-alloy wheels and accelerates from 0-60 mph in under four seconds.

The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is a car which, with its sensual, emotionally appealing design and innovative technical concept solutions, defines the ultimate in luxury of the future. At the same time the two-seater model pays homage to the glorious “automotive haute couture” of hand-finished, exclusive cabriolets.

The strong contrast between the dark blue paintwork in “nautical blue metallic” and the chrome highlights increases the fascinating relationship between the clearly defined areas with organically shaped fenders and the chrome trim elements, which sit at the top on the edge of the fender as well as in the middle of the trunk lid, where they also incorporate the vertical tail lamps. This benefits the interpretation of the Mercedes-Maybach radiator grille, which with its fine, vertical struts accentuates the front end. The grille was inspired by a pinstriped suit. The radiator grille rests on two aerodynamically shaped supports on the outer right and left of the bumper.

The extended, round “boat tail” format of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet’s rear recalls a luxury yacht, and narrow tail lamps which emphasize the width of the vehicle are integrated in its outer edges. Further distinctive features at the rear include the diffuser with aluminum frame and the air outlets behind the wheel arches.
