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 fabulous automotive haute couture of hand-finished, exclusive cabriolets. The glamorous cabriolet reinterprets classic, emotional design principles in an extravagant way and combines exceptional beauty with classic, perfect proportions and a reduced, technoid appearance – an exemplary embodiment of the design philosophy of Sensual Purity.
The combined breathtaking proportions with a luxurious haute couture interior help to create the ultimate experience,” explains Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Daimler AG. Measuring almost six meters in length, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet incorporates the classic proportions of art deco design with its extremely long bonnet and puristic, flowing lines, and at the same time completely reinterprets these aesthetic principles.
The contrast between the dark blue paintwork in “nautical blue metallic” and the chrome highlights increases the fascinating relationship between the defined areas with organically shaped wings and the chrome trim elements.
The extended, round “boat tail” format of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet’s rear recalls a luxury yacht and tail lights which emphasize the width of the vehicle integrated into its outer edges.
360° open-air luxury lounge
The generous, flowing design idiom brings exterior and interior together in a holistic design. The flow of the areas from the rear into the interior gives rise to a typical yacht feeling. A light wing flows in a curve across the door trim and the center tunnel into the seating landscape, creating a 360° open-air luxury lounge. Above the 360° luxury lounge, the display strip links doors, dashboard and the rear area. All display elements integrated into the continuous glass trim part. By way of contrast, classic round dials positioned prominently.
Luxury experience of the highest order
In addition to the flowing contours, the material composition produces a luxury experience of the highest order. The brand’s hallmark authentic materials and colors are used, such as rose gold on the trim elements, or the surfaces which come into contact with the skin, featuring a rich, quilted crystal white Nappa leather finish. In this luxury technique, familiar with other things from Chesterfield furniture, the leather is put into folds in a diamond pattern and secured to the frame with buttons.
The futuristic interpretation of traditional seat upholstery
In the case of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet, this traditional seat upholstery boasts a futuristic interpretation: each button of the quilting depicts a delicate Mercedes star, backlit in blue. The open-pore wood floor with inlaid aluminum underscores the lounge sensation and the connection to yachting. Another highlight comes courtesy of the transparent center tunnel, which visualizes the drive system’s electrical energy flow for the passengers using blue fiber optics. n
