Here’s a Better Look At the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Pebble Beach Concept
Turns out this fashionable coupe packs gullwing doors.
The automotive spectacular that is the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is nearly here, and automakers are getting more aggressive about teasing the cool concept cars they have in store—including Mercedes-Benz and its Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept. We can tell because the German automaker has thrown up a video showing a bit more of the car's exterior and capturing its gullwing doors in action.
We first saw the concept coupe when Mercedes-Benz teased it in a photo uploaded to Instagram last week, with a caption that read "Hot & cool - almost 6 meters of ultimate luxury," which lead us to believe the car was almost 20 feet long. Since then, however, Mercedes has dropped two more teasers on the popular social medium: a front view that shows off the car's aggressive headlights and broad grille, and a quick video revealing quite a bit more.
From the video, we can see that the Maybach has the gullwing doors made famous on cars like the 300SL, swoopy design lines that flow along the nearly-20-foot-long body, and a vertically-slotted grille with a Maybach logo on top.
But few cars can make it all the way it their debut without someone revealing the pictures early, and it seems the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept is no exception. After Mercedes-Benz posted its official teaser video to Instagram, Auto Express posted what appears to be leaked official images of the ultra-long concept coupe. If you're the sort who likes to read all the spoilers before you see a movie, you can find those pictures here.
