What is that er, piece of art.
To be honest, we didn’t have the words to even begin to describe such opulence. So we borrowed the text from Mercedes. Fair enough? Read on. . .
The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is a car which, with its sensual, emotionally appealing design and innovative technical concept solutions, defines the ultimate in luxury of the future. At the same time the two-seater model pays homage to the glorious automotive haute couture of hand-finished, exclusive cabriolets.
The glamorous cabriolet reinterprets classic, emotional design principles in an extravagant way and combines intelligent beauty with classic, aesthetic proportions and a reduced, technoid appearance – a perfect embodiment of the design philosophy of Sensual Purity.
Top open, the Vision 6 Cabriolet resembles that right sized opulent speedboat you’d see on the French riviera, with its long sweeping tail. Its rich blue exterior paint, appropriately called Nautical Blue Metallic.
The strong contrast between the dark blue paintwork in “nautical blue metallic” and the chrome highlights increases the fascinating relationship between the clearly defined areas with organically shaped wings and the chrome trim elements.
This benefits the interpretation of this land yacht’s radiator, with a pinstriped suit inspired grille, which with its fine, vertical struts accentuates the front end.
The extended, round “boat tail” recalls a luxury yacht, and narrow tail lights which emphasise the width of the vehicle are integrated in its outer edges. Crystal white high-quality nappa leather creates an exciting contrast to the dark paint finish.
The custom-made fabric top with interwoven rose gold threads has been perfectly coordinated with the look of the vehicle.
All white interiors, re-invented seats and fabrics are, simply put, out-of-the-world.

Okay, the last one was a joke.
Does it drive?
Nope. She moves. 🙂
Mercedes have not said anything about their production plans for this luxury liner but we hope someday, they put a few of these on the road.
