Mercedes-Maybach has braced up for the Concours d’Elegance 2016 with a brand new concept called the Maybach 6 Coupe. The concept is simple – the luxuries of a limousine bundled into the sportiness of a coupe. The internet though, got the better of Mercedes-Maybach and we have got some exclusive images of the concept coupe.
The number 6 in the name is there for a reason. If not evident from the picture above, the Maybach Coupe will be 6-metres long. To put things in perspective, it is longer than the Roll-Royce Phantom and just shy of the extended wheelbase Phantom.
The fascia is daunting with the wide vertically slatted chrome grille with Maybach inscribed on it and the chrome dipped lip on the racy air dam. The thin LED headlamps and the prominent creases on the hood add muscle to it.
As you move on to the side, the profile is defined by the shoulder line that extends from the grille to the tail in a single swooping stroke. The tear-drop cabin starts almost halfway into the length of the car blending into the classic coupe lines.
It gets the trademark gullwing doors that open upwards. The scooped out sides between the flared wheel arches gives the 6 Coupe its sensuous curves. The wing mirror glasses are replaced with cameras and emerge like winglets from the car’s profile.
The tail sweeps up into the rear overhang like it did in the classic roadsters. The seven-spoke alloys look massive and fill up the wheel wells to the brim. The central crease runs all the way to the boot and splits the rear windshield like the Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic coupe.
The interiors of the 6 Coupe are more like an ultra-luxury speedboat cabin with the seats dipped in an exquisite leather-lined tub. The cabin is spread out with touch-panels, HUDs, digital screens and TFT displays that would probably put a spaceship cockpit to shame.
The two-seater concept will be displayed for connoisseurs at Pebble Beach from August 21 later this month. We have an interesting update from Cadillac as well which might rival the Maybach 6 Coupe, but looking at this one, it would be an uphill task for the Amercians.
