Following on from last year’s concept, Mercedes-Maybach has unveiled its latest iteration of the Mercedes-Maybach 6 Concept, this time as a cabriolet.
Described as an “automotive haute couture”, the glamorous cabriolet sports a design that invokes classic proportions with a modern twist, featuring a long bonnet, short windscreen and massive 24-inch centre locking alloy wheels.
Finished in a striking nautical blue metallic paint, the car’s giant grille is said to be inspired by pinstriped suits, while the “boat tail” rear end with a strip of narrow taillights draws inspiration from luxury yachts. Meanwhile, the car’s fabric top is made of interwoven rose gold threads.
The head-turning style continues inside the cabin with crystal white nappa leather upholstery, rose gold trim and wood flooring with inlaid aluminium accents.
The driver is greeted by a retro instrument cluster, two head-up displays, a flowing “display strip”, floating air vents and a transparent centre tunnel with blue fibre optic components.
The car is also super high-tech, with biometric sensors that monitor the status of the passengers and a concierge function which enables users to talk to the car like a person.
Designed as an electric car, the concept is powered by four compact permanent magnet synchronous electric motors producing 550kW (750hp), making it an all-wheel drive.
The flat battery sits in the underbody and provides a range of over 500km. while enabling the car to dash from 0-100km/h in under 4.0 seconds, en route to an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h. There’s also a quick-charge function which provides an additional range of around 100km in just five minutes.
