Future of Luxury - Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet

Meet the stunning Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet

Meet the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet. The stunning convertible stretches some 6 meters in length, this Maybach is grandly proportioned and is certainly not made for tight parking spots.

Powered by a 738-hp fully electric powertrain, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 cabriolet is said to be able to travel more than 320 kilometres on a charge. A quick-charging system can add 100 kilometres of range in five minutes. There are four electric motors, one for each wheel, allowing for all-wheel drive and torque-vectoring functionality. Performance claims include zero to 100 kph in less than four seconds and a top speed of 250 kph.

Finished in a Nautical Blue Metallic colour and fitted with 24-inch wheels featuring 26 spokes and a rose-gold centre lock, the Vision Mercedes- Maybach 6 Cabriolet is an open-top version of the coupe concept that was launched at the 2016 Pebble Beach event. Up front, a grille with 25 vertical slats represents the new face of the brand which we will see in future Maybach models.

The fabric top features rose gold threads, and it opens to reveal an incredibly sophisticated interior with a classic two-spoke steering wheel, futuristic lighting effects, quilted leather inspired by Chesterfield sofas, and open pore wood with aluminium accents. The digital instrumentation incorporates physical needles-elements that Daimler describes as “hyper analogue.” The planked wooden floor represents a maritime theme.

Being an electric car, the 6's incredibly long front end, with its twin centre-hinged hoods, doesn't house a conventional engine. Maybach has decided to put the space to other uses with compartments dedicated to specially fitted luggage, umbrellas, even silverware. It's a playful element in a hyper-luxury-car concept with a serious purpose: to underscore Daimler's commitment both to electric mobility and to the Maybach brand.
