If reports are to be believed, the Mercedes-Maybach 6 Concept introduced last weekend previews a Rolls-Royce Wraith rival from the German brand.
However, could the design of the Maybach 6 also influence future high-end luxury models from Mercedes-Benz? Perhaps a Maybach-branded variant of the CLS?
Theophilus Chin has rendered just that in his latest piece of magic be turning the low-slung and insanely long Maybach 6 into a sleek five door with a shorter hood but the same flowing, aerodynamic and sophisticated lines of the concept.
The results are the perfect medium between last year’s IAA Concept and the Maybach 6 and to the uninitiated, the final product looks like a real concept Mercedes has introduced.
Will such a model come to fruition?
Probably not like this but there’s every chance the Maybach name could extend to the CLS range. If it does then there’s a possibility that styling elements from the 6 could trickle their way through to an uber-luxury, sporty sedan.
