PEB­BLE BEACH DOU­BLE ACT

Herald Sun - Motoring - - INSIDE LINE -

The world’s ritzi­est car show, at Peb­ble Beach in Cal­i­for­nia, al­ways brings some­thing spe­cial. This year’s stand­outs are a rad­i­cal V12 su­per­car, penned by the man who de­signed the Fer­rari Enzo, and a six-me­tre Ger­man coupe. Ex-Pin­in­fa­rina de­signer Ken Okuyama hints that his winged beauty — dubbed the Kode57 — could en­ter lim­ited pro­duc­tion. The Vi­sion Mercedes May­bach 6, be­low right, a fully elec­tric con­cept car with 550kW, has a fast-charge sys­tem that shows Daim­ler is still com­mit­ted to May­bach head­lin­ers, de­spite killing it as a stand­alone lux­ury brand.
