Mercedes has just unveiled will probably be the biggest reveal of this year’s Monterey car week and not just because of how significant it is but it is literally huge. The vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 the 2+2 coupe, and the concept’s most defining feature is its enormous size. It’s 18 and a half feet long and nearly seven feet wide and it’s actually design is an electric car. Mercedes claims it has a probably impossible 730 horsepower and more than 200 miles of range. It also claimed 0 to 62 mile an hour acceleration time of under four seconds this all sounds crazy but Mercedes says that this electric drive system is actually in development for real production cars.
The concept also has a quick charging feature that can get an extra 62 miles of range in just five minutes. I can already feel jay-z reaching for his wallet, robbers and oil barons will love the coups classic look and it’s exaggerated long hood, it’s going doors, it’s boat tail rear end and that really low roofline. It looks like something a super villain would drive. a few other interesting design cues are the massive red and partially transparent 24-inch rims and that amazing split rear window. The concept also has no side mirrors the job is done by cameras that will relay information to the driver. So this Mercedes-Maybach coupe is super luxurious and I might seem a little bit crazy but luckily a lot of the tech underneath the sheet metal. Will somehow Rickle-down two cars that real people like you and me who aren’t super villains can actually buy one day.
