New Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Surfaces Online And Looks Stunning

The luxurious Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept surfaced online ahead of its official debut.

Scheduled to appear at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Mercedes couldn’t contain the enormous, 6-meter-long car anymore.

The German car maker released three teasers on social media, announcing the unveiling of the car at the prestigious event held on the Monterey Peninsula in Monterey County, California.

As expected, it carries a familiar shape, adopting streamlined silhouette, similar to that of other Mercedes concepts, including the 2004 Maybach Excelero, the Vision Grand Turismo, and even the IAA Concept.

It’s unknown (yet) what powers the behemoth, but the pictures show a long, elongated, split hood – reminiscent of the old, bespoke coachbuilds. The entire front fascia is governed by a gaping wide chrome grille with vertical slats, flanked by a pair of slim LED headlights.

The cabin, secluded by two gullwing doors, appears to be a technological sanctuary, sheltering the occupants from the outside world. It features an enormous heads-up display along the width of the windshield, whilst the lack of a transmission tunnel could indicate an electric powertrain.

The high-tech feeling of the cabin is further emphasized by what appears to be a touch sensitive surface, surrounding the two passengers. The surface, possibly made out of touchscreen displays, embeds the seat control functions and the navigation system.

We’ll definitely find out more about this stunning-looking vehicle once Mercedes will officially unveil it.

Thanks to everyone who sent in a tip!

    a bit too droopy for my taste, i still think MB lost its way

    • Bash

      true, they don’t make new MB cars like the old ones…:(

      • Vanquish

        I completely agree thanks to Lexus Mercedes now knows how to put together Luxury cars with Luxury materials that are more reliable……the regular production Mercedes of the past 3 decades were nothing special in anyway other than the 3 pointed star badge they wore

  • Kash

    Gullwings don’t really fit this car, but i doubt they’d make it onto a production version of this and that’s still if this even makes it past the concept form.

    • Bash

      I think this is just a vision,, like the one BMW and rolls did…. just to see and test media/people reaction…

      • Kash

        I don’t expect them to pull a Lexus LC with this, but I think this previews the freedom the Maybach sub-brand will have in the future and I think eventually they will be allowed to build something like this, a car that isn’t based on another model, a purely Maybach car. The same way that AMG built the SLS and GT, and with how exceptionally well the S-Maybachs sold in the first months, I don’t think it’ll be long before we see that happen.

        • Bash

          I agree with you… but lets see..!

  • Craig

    This would be a very cool looking Buick Riviera.

  • Akira

    What’s under the hood of that thing? A V24? There’s enough space…

  • NG212

    The exterior is so gorgeous, dramatic and imposing. It’s the best-looking Maybach or Maybach concept in the modern era.

    The cabin shows that this is very much a Mercedes “Vision” concept. The tech is cool, but should there be a production variant, I’d prefer leather, wood, brushed metal and four seats.

    Still, this is a gutsy piece of kit. Good on you, Merc-May.

    • Astonman

      I agree on the interior. The outside has a retro feel to it but the inside is very modern. It’s like someone took a craftsman style house and designed the interior with a modern flair.

  • Erzhik

    What’s with the giant horizontal brake lights? This has it. Chiron has it. Centenario has it. Is that a new design language for super cars?

  • Nordschleife

    I do think the front 3/4 view is the best angle of this vehicle but it’s a winner in my book. Very wealthy man’s minority report styling.

  • fabri99

    Very good looking indeed, but since it is a Maybach I think it shouldn’t look so similar to other Mercedes concept cars. It’s magnificent and everything, but it isn’t unique.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      Exactly! It’s just a re-skin of the GT Vision!

    • Vanquish

      I completely agree the current Maybach models look COMPLETELY different from other Mercedes model smh…….

      • fabri99

        They should though. BMW is very careful not to make a 7 Series and a RR Ghost even remotely looking alike and so does VW with the A8/Continental. They may have the same platform/engine/chassis whatever, but at least they look different. You can definitely recognize a RR from a BMW and a Bentley from an Audi.

  • Enter Ranting

    It’s got the rear overhang of a garbage truck. The giant grille doesn’t make sense if it turns out to be electric.

  • Christian

    Boat on Wheels?

    • donald seymour

      True story.

      • Christian

        No ending!

  • Tumbi Mtika

    (rubs eyes)
    Wait a second…

    It’s a FUCKING RESKIN!!!

    It’s just a luxurious version of the fucking GT Vision concept!

  • Chad Gordon

    nice Buick grille.

  • EL MATADOR

    Is it real pictures or just someone’s Photoshop?

  • Ermal Morina

    Imo it looks absolutely stunning,jaw dropping…
    Well done Mercedes

  • U8INIT

    My hand before GOD I’m not impressed…

  • TheBelltower

    Who would drive this? Jessica Rabbit? I can’t take this design seriously.

  • MarketAndChurch

    I especially love everything from the b-pillar on back. The rear-end especially… it lightens up what is a rather heavy/large design. I don’t know why more cars haven’t jumped on this look, I hope Jaguar does as the “droopy butt” look is such a classic look that more car makers need to return to.

    I just wish the Maybach ornament was up front instead of the Benz pointed star, but other than that… it’s a great showing from MB.

  • Six_Tymes

    its gorgeous no doubt, but i can tell the design influence from the Bentley 6 and Lexus coupe

    • Merc1

      What Lexus coupe looks like this?

      M

  • IT LOOKS LIKE A RENDER…BY A TEEN.

  • Afi Keita James

    This concent car is absolutely stunning and smooth.

  • MarkoS

    I thought this was going to be something special. Its NOT.

    • LOVE FORCE ONE

      this is made by a slovenian designer – nothing special came from slovenia ever

  • Ary Wisesa

    It’s stunning and sooo imposingly beautiful. The only think I don’t like is only the color of the wheels. I think if the wheels are not painted in red, it could be more imposing. Well, that’s just my opinion anyway. 🙂

  • Astonman

    This my friends is the epitome of a land yacht.

  • Drifter

    Nice, but a bit much maybe. I do love the interior though.

  • Dennis James

    “Set As Desktop Wallpaper”.

  • LOVE FORCE ONE

    the crooks are building the monument to a depression…

  • SgtBeavis

    The grill is a bit plain but I otherwise like it.

  • S3XY

    Ahh. I love pointless unrealistic cars that will never be built.

  • Bob Bright

    Make it into the next Buick Riviara.

  • Poison_Eagle

    Wouldn’t say stunning. Or imaginative. Dash to axle ratio is comical and front end looks like a Ssangyong Chairman with citric acid in its eye. A disproportionate amount of its length is devoted to the engine compartment, despite the fact its electric. The Cruella De Ville proportions are unnecessary for an electric vehicle but don’t ask me, I’m just Poison Eagle.
