Love it or loathe it, there’s no denying that Mercedes’ latest creation will turn heads wherever it goes.The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet was revealed last month at Pebble Beach as part of 2017 Monterey Car Week in California.
Measuring in at 5.7 metres long and 2.1 metres wide, you’d struggle to find a parking space to put it in, let alone a garage. And despite the immensity of it, there’s still only room for just two seats.
The new Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet sports a chrome-finished grille and a set of glimmering 24-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels complimented by a new sloped rear-end design that’s been crafted to look like the deck of a superyacht.
Mercedes says the 740bhp electric powertrain – made up of four compact electric motors powering each wheel – can sail to 100kph in under four seconds but only has a range of 500 km.
Inside, the cabin is lathered in crystal white nappa leather, while the wooden floor is another hint to its yachting inspiration.
Interior pictures also show a minimalist dashboard that contains three air vents and a blue fibre optics wrap-around panel with the sat-nav visuals incorporated into it.
And as a final flurry of extravagance, the double-hinged bonnet opens like a pair of wings and reveals a decked storage unit that holds a variety of items, from dinner plates, flasks and cutlery to a pair of umbrellas and a luggage set.
