    Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet: 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.

    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.

    Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet: The open-pore wood floor with inlaid aluminium underscores the lounge sensation and the connection to yachting. Above the 360° luxury lounge, the display strip links doors, dashboard and the rear area. All display elements are integrated into the continuous glass trim part.

Mercedes-Maybach have unveiled their new 6 Cabriolet in time for Monterey Car Week and a showcase presentation at the Pebble Beach Concours. The new concept meshes elements of nautical bodywork with the excesses of a true luxury two-seater open-top.

The concept makes the most of its 5.7-metre length and 2 metre width, with a large grille that is flanked by slim LED hedlights. The crouched profile is topped off by the absolute minimum of a windshield.

The Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is all electric with the battery pack sitting in the floorpan. Four compact permanent magnet synchronous motors drive the wheels giving the concept all-wheel drive capability. The motors give an output of 550kW or 750 HP, a 0-100km/h figure of under 4 seconds and a 500 kilometres range under NEDC norms. Recharge is quick and effective, with the ability to supercharge – five minutes will give you 100 kilometres of range.

The highlight of the driver experience is the provision of an intelligent assistant akin to Siri that is called the Concierge. Sensors also track the passenger’s health.

The interiors have been carved out like a cockpit, with a display that wraps around the occupants, with driver controls linked to the analogue twin dials. Both occupants get heads-up displays for information.
