Mercedes Shows Off Silhouette of Maybach Coupe

Hubba hubba

Followers of Mercedes-Benz on Instagram, you are not hallucinating. Yes, the folks over at Benz did indeed just tease a truly tantalizing silhouette of what is surely some sort of Maybach coupe. Chances are good that whatever it is, we'll know more at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

A big, long, sexy, exorbitantly exorbitant Maybach coupe. It even has a gorgeously slim greenhouse with a fancy Maybach badge on the fastback roof and a three-pointed star hood ornament, as well as seemingly huge fender vents with a big chrome strake running through it.

The teaser pic hints the shadowy two-door is "almost 6 meters of ultimate luxury." That's nearly 232 inches of high-end German metal. For reference, the yacht-like Mercedes-Maybach S600 sedan is 214.6 inches long, with a wheelbase of 132.5 inches. Yao Ming would likely call it "suitable" for his frame.

It's not clear at this point whether this still-secret Maybach coupe is a concept or a production car. All we can say, before we've even seen it, is that Benz should definitely, definitely build it. The S600 Maybach sedan is cool and all, silver-platter wheels included, but this coupe could be something extra-special.

One would think it would share the S600 sedan's potent 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12, with its 523 hp and monumental 612 lb-ft of torque. Probably the champagne chiller, too.
