After the retirement of the Mercedes-AMG SLS a while back, Mercedes has remained barren of any iconic car with gullwing doors – but that might change if the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept morphs into a production version.
The German automaker has decided to entice us even further in anticipation to the first appearance in Pebble Beach on 18th August 2016, when the entire design of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept will be revealed. For now, the teaser showed a humongous coupe flaunting even more of its metal skin – the very sloping roofline, the rounded rear fascia or the pair of stylish taillights. Apparently the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is both a step into the future design directions of the Maybach-branded versions, but also a step into the history as it breaths 1930s streamlined inspiration. We could catch a glimpse of what appear to be equally impressive huge wheels finished in red to match the body paint.
At about six meters (19.7 feet) long, the coupe is most likely just as imposing and aiming to surpass the Exelero one-off from 12 years ago, but with an even more appealing design skills set. We have no official clue whether this is a preview for an upcoming model – perhaps an ultra-luxurious coupe sitting in the range above the S-Class Coupe and directed at the Rolls-Royce and Bentley crowd.
