The Maybach Vision 6 was unveiled late 2017 in California, a perfect setting for the all-electric, super cool concept. There aren’t any actual size specifications due to the fact it’s a concept and Mercedes-Maybach are adamant it’s not going into production any time soon, but it’s definitely a contender for a slot in the world’s biggest cars.
The one big (literally) measurement to take away – it’s just short of 20 feet in length. Or in other words, around the same as the extended wheelbase version of the Rolls-Royce Phantom (239”). And it seats just two people.
Mercedes-Maybach made the Vision 6 soft top as a ‘vision of the future vehicles it could be producing in the year 2035 and beyond’, meaning that there’s no pricing and no chance of buying one – it really is a one-off.
The lumpy bit under the hood is an all-electric motor that will deliver around 750 horsepower, have a 0 – 60 mph time of under four seconds, and a range of 200 miles. Maybach also says that thanks to their new ‘super’ charger system, you’ll be able to charge it enough for a 60 mile trip in just 5 minutes.
Frankly, given that it’s a concept, none of the tech works and the powertrain isn’t actually a production-ready model which means they can say anything they want about the capabilities; it will fly to the moon and back on one ten-minute charge. Really? Really.
Unlike a number of concept vehicles, the Vision 6 Cabriolet has had some serious time and money put into it – the floor is wooden and inlaid with an aluminum trim, the fabric top has been interwoven with gold threads, and the rear of the car is designed to remind you of a luxury yacht.
As for the rest of the styling – an extended hood announces its presence way before it should. It’s a beautifully designed affair that opens up either side, a little like the cars of yesteryear – there’ll certainly be no clearance issues here.
Despite being gargantuan, the Maybach would have to be one of the better-looking ‘options’ when it comes to the biggest cars in the world.
