The Essence of Design

Gorden Wagener, head of the Daimler AG project, said that the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 embodied the company’s design philosophy of sensual purity and the pursuit of aerodynamic efficiency. This two-plus-two-seat “design exercise,” powered by four electric motors, is inspired by the glory of the 1930s Aero coupés, built by carmakers like Bugatti, Rolls-Royce, Talbot-Lago and many others.

The stylistic lines are clearly defined. The ones that travel on each side from the radiator grille across the length of the vehicle to the back, define the upper body. The chrome strips visible from its profile contrast with the red paintwork. The elongated rear, called boat-tail, recalls a luxury yacht.

From the interior, passengers will be able to control geographical information through gestures. One of the most significant aspects of the car is its dimesnions: 5.7m long and 2.1m wide. Still, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 performs like a true sports car, reaching 0-62 mph in less than four seconds.
