Silhouette of a Mystery Coupe – Maybach
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept promises to be one of the highlights on the lawn at Pebble Beach this year. So far we know it’s a coupe and that it’s 6 meters long, or longer than virtually everything. Now, Mercedes has released another teaser, which reveals more of the concept’s rear end along with its gullwing doors.
Bearing paper-thin headlights, a massive waterfall grille, and a long hood, the front end of the car matches the drama of the side profile. It’s also unlike any Mercedes car we’ve seen, although you can argue the grille takes a suggestion or two from the AMG GT R. We initially didn’t know whether or not Mercedes was debuting a concept or production model, but the new teaser makes it clear this is a concept given its “Vision” name. The Mercedes-Maybach 6 will make its official debut at Pebble Beach on August 18.
If you have trouble remembering the car’s name, note that the “6” references its 6-meter length. The Mercedes-Maybach 6 is expected to be nearly 232 inches long, or even longer than the Mercedes-Maybach S600 sedan, which measures in at 214.6 inches. Also notice the small “Maybach” badge under the three-pointed star.
We wonder if the Maybach coupe will look just as good in the sheetmetal as the Mercedes-Benz Vision Gran Turismo Concept, which debuted two years ago at Pebble. We bet it’ll be a close beauty contest.
