After the debut of the hard top version a year ago, Mercedes-Benz returned with the new version of its concept vehicle, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet.
Unveiling during this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Eleganc once again, the car “defines the ultimate in luxury of the future,” the brand says in a press release. And, pays homage to the “automotive haute couture” of hand-finished, exclusive cabriolets. It’s the first open-top Maybach for decades.
The two-seater measures at 20 feet in length, while incorporating proportions of art deco design with its extremely long hood and flowing lines. Its done in a dark blue paintjob called “nautical blue metallic”, which is complemented by chrome highlights. Its Mercedes-Maybach radiator grille is also a strong highlight, with fine, vertical struts accentuates the front end — inspired by a pinstriped suit. 24-inch light-alloy wheels feature a center lock, which is painted rose gold.
Inside continues the flowing design, with a luxurious 360° open-air lounge, featuring crystal white nappa leather for a stark contrast to the dark paint finish. The custom-made fabric top with interwoven rose gold threads has been perfectly coordinated with the look of the vehicle.
If you’re wondering, it’s an an electric car, meaning its emission-free. Thanks to its four compact permanent magnet synchronous electric motors, it features all-wheel drive, with the flat battery sitting in the underbody. The drive system has an output of 750 hp, allowing it to zoom from 0-60 mph in under four seconds and top out at an electronically governed at 155 mph. The range is over 200 miles on a full battery charge.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is limited to just 300 examples worldwide.
