Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabrioet: Looking Back At One Of The World’s Most Luxurious Cars
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 was a concept car that was unveiled by German car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz, under its Maybach division at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. But since we couldn’t get over this absolute perfection of a car, we decided to take a look back at it and appreciate it in all its glory.
Where do we start? Those sleek headlamps that almost hypnotize you? That futuristic interior? Or that vintage-modern hybrid car design? Let’s just start with how it runs.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is actually an electric car with a total output of 740 bhp. The shallow under-floor battery enables the cabriolet to have a range of 500 kilometres according to NEDC (New European Driving Cycle).
Car & Bike reported Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Daimler AG saying, “The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet takes modern luxury into the realms of the ultimate in luxury, and is the perfect embodiment of our design strategy. Breathtaking proportions combined with a luxurious “haute couture” interior help to create the ultimate experience.”
If size matters to you, you’ll be glad to know this car is almost 6 metres long. It makes use of an elegant art deco design which perfectly showcases its long bonnet and minimalistic design theme. The sharp, thin headlamps look absolutely beautiful in tandem with the lovely chrome radiator grille with vertical fins. Bringing together the whole design, are those beautiful 24-inch alloys with a centre lock, painted in rose gold. The Vision 6 Cabriolet measures 5,700 mm in length, 2,100 in width, 1,340 mm in height.
The interior of the car matches the futuristic design aesthetic of the exterior. Following a minimalist theme, the interior gets crystal white nappa leather along with a dark paint finish. The fabric top is woven with rose gold threads. Further use of rose gold is seen on the trim elements in the cabin. The seats get quilted Mercedes-Benz star, which are backlit in Blue. Another fascinating fact is that all the display elements are integrated into the glass trim. You wouldn’t be able to see a single button anywhere inside the cabin of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet. It also gets the latest generation of bio-metric sensors which can record the state of mind and health of the passengers. The car also offers something which is called the ‘Concierge Function’, which enables the driver to communicate with the car like he would to a normal person. Talk about futuristic.
