Do you remember the spectacular Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept, presented in 2016 at the Pebble Beach Elegance Competition? A year later, he returned to California, but in a form better suited to the local climate: that of a convertible.
You find your Mercedes S Class Cabriolet too small, but you want to remain true to the brand? With its 5,70 m length, the concept Vision 6 Convertible answers perfectly to this problem. The only problem is that it is a unique copy, designed for the Pebble Beach Elegance Contest that takes place this weekend in California. This cabriolet of disproportion comes to take the succession of a study of coupé , which had been presented at the same event last year. We find the same endless hood, the same wide grille and the same thin optical.Everything is played at the level of the pavilion, suppressed to allow the two passengers to enjoy a large bowl of air. Only a canvas top will now protect them from the elements.
No Engine under the hood (s)
By opening the two hoods like gull wings, do not expect to find a monumental V12: you will only find cutlery, luggage and various carefully arranged items. To move, this concept Mercedes-Maybach Vision 6 prefers to use an electric motor, strong 550 kW (750 hp). Sufficient to claim a 0 to 100 km / h buckled in 4 seconds and a top speed of 250 km / h, while the autonomy would reach 500 km. A fast charge would also allow to recover 100 km of additional radius of action in barely 5 mn.But no need to prepare your pen to sign the order form of this Mercedes-Maybach Vision 6: no outlet in series is a priori planned. You will therefore be satisfied with the modest 5.03 m long of your S-Class Cabriolet.The lighting of the cockpit is of the kind very neat. © Mercedes
