2016 Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Concept

Revealed at the 2016 Pebble Beach in California, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is a two-door, 2+2 passenger coupe that spans over 18 feet long. The exterior design clearly defined contours and organically formed fenders 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. Below this, the main body has a bulging, muscular look, extending across the entire flank. There is also a striking contrast between the Maybach red paintwork and the chrome strips which sit above the wheel arches and in the center of the hood and trunk lid. The company claims that the grille was inspired by a pinstripe suit.

Powering this massive coupe are four electric motors that can produce a combined 738 horsepower. Mercedes says that will be enough to get the car to 62mph from a standstill in under 4 seconds. The motors are backed by an 80 kWh battery that the company says can propel the car up to 200 miles. Perhaps more interesting than its range is the fact that the Mercedes-Maybach 6 can pick up a charge worth 62 miles in just 5 minutes, assuming you've got the right charger. The car can be charged either by being plugged in, or wirelessly with an inductive charging system.

Inside, the dashboard wing curves across the door trim into the seat landscape, creating a 360° lounge. It does retain analog gauges as a link to the past, but augments them with wrap-around glass trim that doubles as a display and touch-sensitive interface. The windshield seems to be pulled from Mission Impossible with its ability to display information. Sensors in the seats are designed to read the condition of the passengers and even their outfits to custom tailor everything from lighting to massage features. ( &
