Mercedes has unveiled a new electric concept car at Pebble Beach in California, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet comes with an electric motor with 550 kW which is about 750 horsepower.
Measuring almost six metres in length, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet incorporates the classic proportions of art deco design with its extremely long bonnet and puristic, flowing lines, and at the same time completely reinterprets these aesthetic principles. The curved basic body boasts a sporty, stretched design which is characterised by powerful structural elements in conjunction with the sharp feature line. This side feature line defines the upper vehicle body, from the radiator grille across the entire length of the vehicle through to the rear.
The strong contrast between the dark blue paintwork in “nautical blue metallic” and the chrome highlights increases the fascinating relationship between the clearly defined areas with organically shaped wings and the chrome trim elements, which sit at the top on the edge of the wing as well as in the middle on the boot lid, where they also incorporate the vertical brake lights. This benefits the interpretation of the Mercedes-Maybach radiator grille, which with its fine, vertical struts accentuates the front end. The grille was inspired by a pinstriped suit. The radiator grille rests on two aerodynamically shaped supports on the outer right and left of the bumper.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet will have a 0 to 62 miles per hour time of less than four seconds and a limited top speed of 155 miles per hour. You can find out more details about this new electric concept car over at Mercedes at the link below.
