Mercedes-Maybach 6 Concept revealed

Mercedes-Benz has taken the sheets off what appears to be a spaceship like form, called the 6 Concept, under the Mercedes-Maybach luxury sub-brand. This design features a massive toothy grille, slit-like headlamps, gullwing doors and streamlined bodywork. An extremely long hood and boat-tail like rear give it the appeal of a Hot Wheels-specified dinky toy.

This design hints at Mercedes-Maybach’s future models. The number in the name is a direct link to the length of the car, but at 5.6 meters, it still isn’t precise. The rather unconventional 24-inch wheels look identical to the ones used on the 2015’s Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile Concept’s.
Inside, the cockpit appears to be more of a lounge, as the premium materials used suggest: polished elm flooring, rose gold accents on the dashboard and leather seats. The car features a windscreen that displays data and geographical information across the entire transparent windshield. And that’s not all; autonomous driving is a part of the package as well.

Beneath all the extravagant metal you see, lies a 738hp electric powertrain with an 80-kilowatt-hour battery placed in the floor, powering the wheels via an all-wheel-drive system. 0-100kph is dealt with in under 4 seconds, with a total range of 200 miles. Thanks to the high-speed DC charging unit, the Maybach 6 will do 62 miles with just 5 minutes of charge.

Expect an early 2017 production car unveiling. And when available to buy, it will take on the likes of the Rolls Royce Wraith and Bentley Continental GT. 00_0_mercedes-maybach-6
