Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet showcased at the IAA 2017 – Live
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Among the many new concepts and production models Mercedes unveiled at the IAA 2017, sits the long Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet.
The open top iteration of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Coupe debuted at the 2017 Pebble Beach in Monterey, California. It pays homage to the “automotive haute couture” of hand-finished, exclusive cabriolets from the 20th century. The chrome highlights and a “nautical blue metallic” paintwork atop a clean exterior design contribute to a regal impression. In case you’re wondering, it’s almost 6 meters long and has 24-inch rims in each corner. Quite usual for design study concepts.
To contrast with the blue exterior, the cabin is draped in white high-quality Nappa leather and rose gold trim on the dashboard. The soft top is custom-made fabric with interwoven rose gold threads.
The concept has four compact synchronous electric motors powering all four wheels all-wheel drive, with a total output of 750 hp. It is capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h in under four seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km/h. The underfloor battery powering its motors allows a range of over 500 kilometres.
