REVOLUTIONARY MERCEDES MAYBACH 6 REVEALED.
REVELATION OF LUXURY
At this year’s gathering of the most magnificent classic cars at Pebble Beach in California, Mercedes-Benz is once again set to present a highlight: 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.
DESIGNED AS AN ELECTRIC CAR
All new Mercedes maybach has a pure electric powertrain delivering a sturdy 760hp via four compact electric motors – a layout similar to that used by the short-lived Mercedes-Benz SLS Electric Drive supercar.
The motors supply power on each wheel independently, making the 6 Cabriolet four-wheel-drive. Computer simulations point to a 0-100kph time of less than 4.0sec, while top speed is electronically limited to 248kph.
Electricity is stored in a lithium ion battery mounted within the floorplan. Mercedes claims a range of more than 497km on the European test cycle. A quick charge function, running at up to 350kW, is said to provide an additional range of up to 100km from just five minutes of charging.
This car has one of the most powerful trail and will produce power just like a supercar. Ohh!!!”This is the supercar”.
This car or called as the “Future car” clearly defined contours and organically formed wings stand in contrast to the sharply drawn, extended feature line on each side which defines the upper vehicle body from the radiator grille across the entire length of the vehicle to the rear. There is also a striking contrast between the Maybach red paintwork and the chrome strips which sit above the wheel arches and in the centre of the bonnet and boot lid. A reinterpretation of the Mercedes-Maybach radiator grille with its fine, vertical struts accentuates the front end. The extended, round “boat tail” format of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6’s rear recalls a luxury yacht
At 5700mm in length, 2100mm in width and 1340mm in height, the 6 Cabriolet is a considerable 671mm longer, 201mm wider but 71mm lower than the S-Class Cabriolet.
Distinguished by its bold grille, long sweeping bonnet, extreme rearward seating position, towering 24 inch wheels, extended boat tail-style rear end and two-tone design scheme, the 6 Cabriolet resurrects both the stretched proportions and aesthetic principles common of luxury cars throughout the 1940s and 1950s.
The 6 Cabriolet has a luxurious interior lined with quilted white Nappa leather, a flowing, full-width dashboard featuring the latest in touch-sensitive controls and digital displays featuring traditional analogue needles. The custom-made retractable fabric roof incorporates interwoven threads of gold.
The dramatic styling and elaborate details are claimed to provide hints to how Maybach versions of Mercedes models will look in future years in order to give them with a more individual and distinctive appearance.
