Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Debuts at Monterey Car Week
Every August classic car fans from around the world converge on Pebble Beach in California for a high profile beauty contest.
This gathering is the perfect place to premiere the exclusive Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, a sensational luxury-class coupé. The 2+2-seater is a homage to the glorious age of the aero coupés and consciously carries this tradition forward into the future.
This year’s event, which came to a close yesterday, saw the stunning car debut in front of a captive audience of car lovers.
The coupé reinterprets classic, emotional design principles in an extreme way, following the Mercedes design philosophy of sensual purity.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, which measures almost six metres in length, is designed as an electric car. The drive system has an output of 550 kW (750 hp). The shallow underfloor battery allows a range of over 500 kilometres according to the NEDC (over 200 miles according to EPA).
"Our glamorous coupé, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, represents the ultimate in contemporary luxury. It is hot and cool," states Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG.
"With its intelligent appeal and reduced, technoid look, it perfectly embodies our design philosophy of sensual purity and our pursuit of aerodynamic efficiency."
Monterey Car Week took place on the Monterey Peninsula between 16 and 21 August.
