Here Are The Best Photos Of the New Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6
Check out rarely-seen pics of the ultra-luxury concept stunner.
Although they were stingy with images of the actual car, we rounded up some photos of the electric-powered concept in the metal, rather than the widely-revealed computer renderings you might have seen elsewhere.
The Vision 6 has got impressive power, vaulting from 6 to 62 mph in less than 4.0 seconds (that’s a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds or better) and to a limited top speed of 155 mph.
A direct current fast-charge system can theoretically re-power the battery pack for 62 miles more driving range in just five minutes, as long as you can find one of the mythical DC quick chargers.
Visible details of the concept include the use of Mercedes now-signature gullwing doors, plus the inclusion of other Pebble Beach-worthy styling cues, such as the ’63 ‘Vette’s split rear window and the ’36 Auburn Speedster’s boat tail trunk.
“With its intelligent appeal and reduced, technoid look, it perfectly embodies our design philosophy of sensual purity and our pursuit of aerodynamic efficiency,” says Gorden Wagener, head of design for Daimler AG.
Check out the cool details like the red-tinted clear shield over the spokes of the concept’s gigantic 24-inch wheels.
On the dashboard, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 (can we come up with a shortened nickname for this thing?) goes retro, with “hyper-analogue” instruments that have needles and circular, crystal-look displays.
They’re backed up by a head-up display on the windshield that projects driving-related data and geographical information across its full width, providing augmented reality.
These scan the passengers and monitor, for example, their vital functions. As a result, comfort features such as seat climate or the massage function, for example, can be activated or the seat settings adjusted to the passenger.
Look for Mercedes to provide us still more details and photos when the car rolls out at the Paris Motor Show next month. This crimson missile should make Teslafans forget about their comparatively dull electric sedans.
