This Maybach Study Would Take The Firm’s Design To New Heights

Last month, Daimler said that Maybach could eventually start to produce its own vehicles. This concept, created by designer Dahye Jeong from South Korea offers an interesting take on what a future bespoke Maybach model could look like.

Dubbed the Maybach Opera and taking inspiration from the sophistication of opera houses around the world, the concept combines remarkably sleek exterior surfaces with radical design elements never before seen from Daimler.

Dominating the nose of the Maybach Opera is an elongated hood that seems to stretch into eternity. Seamlessly incorporated into the hood are six individual streaks of light on each side that stretch over the hood and front wheel arches in place of traditional headlights. It makes for a very interesting look. Another noteworthy feature of the front fascia is that there’s no traditional front grille and instead just a pair of curvy air intakes.

Curiously, the concept makes do without any doors. Instead, the entire glass roof canopy simply lifts off the bodywork, allowing occupants to enter and exit through an opening at the roof, similar to a luxury boat. Complementing the intriguing canopy design are taillight streaks similar to those that act as headlights.

While speaking about the possibility of Maybach once again building its own vehicles, Daimler chief Dieter Zetsche didn’t offer any specifics as to what kind of vehicles we can expect. However, two likely candidates for future Maybach models are the Vision Maybach Ultimate Luxury crossover and Vision Maybach 6 coupe and cabriolet. A vehicle as bold as this concept is highly unlikely.

    “This Maybach Study Would Take The Firm’s Design To New Heights”

    What would take this “FIRM” to new heights would be to make it into a (completely) full fledged company as it was (prior to 2011) and to stop limiting it a ‘trim-level’ for Mercedes Benz vehicles. I believe that is step #1.

    (and yes I know they’ve said Maybach ‘could’ start making it’s own models, but IT needs to be separate from Mercedes Benz… and MB ‘could’ but it’s not a definitive ‘yes, they will’).

      I think this was just a study by some guy on the internet, not Mercedes itself.

    What the f is this supposed to be?

    I’m looking at this as more of a feature showcase than a model to be made (there isn’t enough water in the world to run THIS down). And, so far, the features seem nice.
