Friday saw the unveiling of the Vision 6 Cabriolet concept at the 2017 Monterey Car Week in Monterey, California by Mercedes-Maybach.
The stunning cabriolet is the ultimate embodiment of the Mercedes’ Sensual Purity design philosophy. Its execution brings together classic automotive design element with a sleek futuristic aesthetic.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet takes modern luxury to a whole new level and is the perfect embodiment of the brand’s design strategy. Its luxurious “haute couture” interior complements the stunning proportions to create the ultimate experience.
The all-electric drop top continues Mercedes’ move towards alternative propulsion. The Maybach was introduced shortly after the company’s AMG division unveiled the new hypercar’s 1,000 horsepower Formula One-derived hybrid drivetrain.
Hand-finished to perfection, the Vision 6 Cabriolet is likened to a boat on wheels with its nearly six metres in length, generous proportions reminiscent of classic Art Deco design, and long bonnet and plenty of puristic, flowing lines.
The rear is especially eye-catching with its shape in the vein of a boat tail of a luxury yacht. Dark blue exterior called Nautical Blue Metallic furthers the allure and newly-designed 24-inch light-alloy wheels feature a centre lock finished in rose gold – this is a shade found on all electric vehicle studies from the automaker.
The interior has been conceptualised to merge with the exterior. There is a 360° open-air luxury lounge experience being offered. The cabin is dressed with lavish, quilted crystal white nappa leather for ultimate comfort.
Open-pore wood flooring, complete with inlaid aluminium, is reminiscent of yachting again, and rose gold makes its way on to trim elements. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet’s comes with custom-made fabric top adorned with rose gold, in the interwoven tread stitch on the unit.
A shallow underfloor battery gives the car a range of over 500 km, and there’s a quick-charge function for the car – with a charging capacity of up to 350 kW with DC charging based on the CCS standard. Enough power can be charged in just five minutes to achieve an additional range of around 100 km.
Price is yet to be announced.
