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!
