Maybach’s new Vision
MERCEDES-BENZ presented the 2017 Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet at the recent Pebble Beach in California.
Largely the same car as the 2016 Vision, this year’s version has a soft top, to open the ambient-lit cockpit to the stars.
The company said in a statement this cabrolet defines the ultimate in luxury of the future.
The elegant cabriolet made its debut at the Monterey Car Week, which took take place on the Monterey Peninsula in California between August 15 and 20. The Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is designed as an electric car.
The drive system has an output of 550 kW.
The shallow underfloor battery allows a range of over 500 kilometres, according to the NEDC.
The sleek proportions combine with what Mercedes-Benz termed “a luxurious haute couture interior”.
Gorden Wagener, chief design officer of Daimler AG, said the Vision measured almost six metres in length, adding its classic proportions incorporate art deco design with its extremely long bonnet and flowing lines, and at the same time completely reinterpret these aesthetic principles.
The curved basic body boasts a sporty, stretched design which is characterised by powerful structural elements in conjunction with the sharp feature line.
This side feature line defines the upper vehicle body, from the radiator grille across the entire length of the vehicle through to the rear.
The concept car is said to have a 0-100 km/h acceleration in under five seconds.
The price is, however, only for owners of several oil wells, in the region of R40 million. — Wheels Reporter.
