Body dEsign and finish Like the coupe, the convertible concept is long, measuring 18.7 feet in length along with being 6.9 feet wide and 4.4 feet tall. But this time, instead of a flashy red, the German automaker decided to go with a nautical blue metallic paint and chrome accents. On all four corners are newly designed 24-inch wheels with a rose gold center lock. hautE couturE intErior As a convertible, the Vision 6 Cabriolet has a 360-degree open-air lounge thanks to a light wing that flows in a curve across the door trim and the centre tunnel into the seat landscape. The cabin has contrasting crystal white Nappa leather with interwoven rose gold threads and an open-pore wood floor with inlaid aluminum. BElls and whistlEs The cabin boasts touch-only controls and an intelligent navigation linked to an appointment calendar, as well as a concierge function that makes it possible to speak to the program without having to use predefined voice commands. There’s also biometric sensors that record the state of mind and health status of the passengers.
Designed as an electric car, the ultra-luxurious convertible has 750 horsepower, says MercedesMaybach, with a range of more than 500 kilometres on the generous New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). The performance is good for a zero-to-100 time of four seconds, while its top speed is electronically restricted to 250 km/h.
