Thanks to its ample dimensions (length/width/height: 5,700/2,100/1,328 millimetres) the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 represents a luxurious tribute to the glorious era of aero-coupés – yet it is anything but a retro-style vehicle. Its extremely long bonnet, the low roof line and the greenhouse offset towards the rear are a successful, new interpretation of classic, aesthetic principles. Clearly designed surfaces and organically shaped wings are in contrast to accurate, elongated characteristic lines. "Maybach Red" paintwork and striking chrome panels perfectly emphasise the sensual, clear design language.
Technology and the interior provide innovations with an eye on the distant future. The windscreen operates as a transparent display on which data relevant to driving and geographical information can be displayed across its entire width. Displays and operating elements have been integrated into a round, digital strip that swings across the door panel into the seats to create a 360° lounge.
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is driven by four compact, permanent-magnet, synchronous electric motors. 750 hp (550 kW) generate a performance typical for sports cars and an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds as well as an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.
