As all You may know, a few months ago on 21st of August, there was a very special classic cars contest on Pebble Beach in California where audience could evaluate an exclusive 2+2 seater luxury-class coupe Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6. If You haven’t been there and haven’t heard anything about it, then let’s recall and take a look on a magnificent Red Beauty where, classic traditions intertwined with futuristic technologies and design.
First thing that draws attention are impressive dimensions of this glamorous ground vessel. This wonderful work of art, created by Daimler AG crew in Mercedes-Benz design philosophy, is 6 meters length (length/width/height: 5700/2100/1328 millimeters) . Though all the contours and lines are formed so thoughtful that this glamorous coupe simply smells pure contemporary luxury. Extraordinary look gives compatibility of red polished paint with radiator grille, chrome strips and other details.
Even that The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is designed as an electric car, doesn’t prevent to act like a typical sports car on the road. It features all-wheel drive, which gives an output of the drive system equal 550 kW (750 PS). The shallow underfloor battery has a usable capacity of approx. 80 kWh, that allows over 500 kilometers according to the NEDC (over 200 miles according to EPA), with a charging capacity of 350 kW. Another impressive performance characteristics of a typical sports car is four electric motors producing 750hp, which gives acceleration from 0‑100 km/h in under 4 seconds and top speed electronically governed at 250 km/h.
One more thing, that can fascinate You is extremely futuristic luxurious interior in lounge style. The front windscreen across its full width, serves as a transparent display that shows all useful driving-related information. Control of this information can be performed using gestures. The sitting surface forms a horizontal, which transitions into the vertical of the doors and finally becomes the underside of the dashboard wing. In the doors and dashboard the traditional wood trim softens the appearance of the digital control and display interfaces. As a contrast to the digital world of the displays, elm is used in the floor area, creating a refined yachting look.
