Mercedes teases Maybach 6 again

6 of the best: The latest look at Mercedes’ mighty Maybach concept is yet to reveal anything conservative about the near-six metre long show car.

Second low-lit shot hints at Mercedes-Maybach 6 front end

15 Aug 2016

MERCEDES-MAYBACH is building the anticipation around its massive coupe concept ahead of its first public outing at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance next week, with a second teaser shot which, this time, offers a peep at its nose.

The single front elevation follows a dimly-lit profile image that was revealed last week, slowly piecing together the near six-metre long coupe, ahead of a full unadulterated look in the United States on August 18.

Like the first image, the German car-maker turned to social media to release the shot with no further detail accompanying the picture.

Officially, the car’s full name is the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 and the latest instalment in the hype campaign reveals its expansive 25-bar chrome-look grille bookended by slender triple headlights and another angle of its vast bonnet.

The closer view also details the car’s Shrek-ear door mirrors and muscular front bumper as well as confirmation that it will wear both the three-pointed star Merc badge and the Maybach moniker.

Maybach is yet to talk about the potential for a production model that might evolve from the mighty concept, which would double the current range alongside the S-Class based S600 luxury large sedan.

Rivals to the huge coupe are thin on the ground but the Rolls-Royce Wraith would be a direct luxury contender.

Powertrain possibilities could range anywhere from a hybrid, plug-in version or more performance-focused petrol derived from something in the hand-built AMG catalogue.

It is understood that the 6 nameplate refers to the Maybach’s imposing length which, at 5453mm extends almost to six metres.
