The rather large Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Concept debuted at the 2016 Monterey Car Week.

Measuring a massive 18.5-inches long and nearly seven-feet wide, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Concept is a 2+2 coupe that possibly previews a future model for the ultra-luxury brand. Designed to be an electric car, the concept boasts 738 horsepower and over 200 miles of all-electric range thanks to four compact synchronous motors, one at each wheel. Battery capacity comes in at 80 kWh and all said and done, Mercedes-Maybach says the concept goes from zero-to-62 mph in under four seconds. More importantly however, the concept’s electric drive system is in development for production cars.

The exterior of the concept continues its bold styling with massive 24-inch wheels, split-rear window and boat tail rear end. The narrow lights give it a sleek overall design, while the side mirrors aren’t actually mirrors, cameras located on the fenders relay information to the driver.

Inside, Mercedes went to the future, creating a large windshield that serves as a head-up/augmented reality display that can be controlled by gestures. There are even body sensors on the driver’s seat that monitor the driver’s vital functions.

    And that’s what will allow me to afford the car in the article? I don’t think so. This article targets the penultimate level of conspicuous consumption. Translation? A six figure MONTHLY income. That said, “Happy Peddling!”

    I can’t believe I’m exercising my stunning abilities in written self-expression in such a tawdry playground…

    I LOVE the look of this car, it’s so art deco! You don’t see swoopy, curvaceous, elegant design like this anymore.
