Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Concept Shows off its Gullwing Doors

Big coupe follows in 300 SL, SLS' footsteps

The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept promises to be one of the highlights on the lawn at Pebble Beach this year. So far we know it's a coupe and that it's 6 meters long, or longer than virtually everything. Now, Mercedes has released another teaser, which reveals more of the concept's rear end along with its gullwing doors.

The short Instagram clip starts by showing more of the coupe's long hood. We then get a peek at the slender taillamps that extend well onto the rear bumper and fenders. As we learned from the first teaser image showing the car's profile, the concept features a very narrow greenhouse and tiny wing mirrors (or more likely cameras) on the sides. The rear window is obscured by shadow, but don't expect visibility in back to be better than any other viewpoint inside the car.

The big reveal comes when the gullwing doors open. Just like the previous Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 features top-hinged doors that give the car an impressive wingspan when open. As for other details on the new concept car, we'll have to wait until it debuts in Pebble Beach on August 18.
