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 vehicle which, with its sensual, emotionally appealing design and innovative technical concept solutions, defines the ultimate in luxury of the future.
To be unveiled at this year's Monterey Car Week and Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance - two events that feature some of the world's rarest and most expensive classic cars - the concept gives us a taste of what we could expect from Mercedes' top-of-the-range cars in the future.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is limited to just 300 examples worldwide. The rear is meant to look like the boat tail of a yacht, with white nappa leather that contrasts with a dark paint finish described as "nautical blue metallic". The real eye-catcher, however, is the transparent center tunnel filled with blue fiber optics that's created to visualize the car's electrical energy flow. This custom-made retractable fabric roof incorporates interwoven threads of gold.
The latest generation of biometric sensors record the state of mind and health status of the passengers. The hood, which traditionally houses the engine in conventional luxury cars, now serves as a luggage compartment specifically designed for this Maybach 6. A flat battery sits in the underbody and the four electric motors generate a total 750 hp. The drive system has an output of 750 hp, allowing it to zoom from 0-60 miles per hour in under four seconds and top out at an electronically governed at 155 miles per hour.
The quick-charge function is also visionary: as a result of DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. The auto is a one-of-one example of Mercedes' vision for the cars it'll make in 2035 and beyond. Using this new charger, the super Mercedes has been developed where the vehicle can have around 60 miles with just a charging of five easy minutes. At the same time, these show cars are looking far into the future. Audi, BMW, and Porsche have also introduced their advanced electric concepts in the past year. However, it's the design which makes it stand out with the full sized open top, the true Mercedes Maybach type unlike the S variants, that the company has designed in years.
