Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Looks Just as Alluring Up Front

Concept will debut at Monterey Car Week

Last week, Mercedes teased the silhouette of a mystery coupe, and now we know it's the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6. That's according to the automaker's latest social media teaser, which shows off the front end of the long, wide sports car.

Bearing paper-thin headlights, a massive waterfall grille, and a long hood, the front end of the car matches the drama of the side profile. It's also unlike any Mercedes car we've seen, although you can argue the grille takes a suggestion or two from the AMG GT R. We initially didn't know whether or not Mercedes was debuting a concept or production model, but the new teaser makes it clear this is a concept given its "Vision" name. The Mercedes-Maybach 6 will make its official debut at Pebble Beach on August 18.

If you have trouble remembering the car's name, note that the "6" references its 6-meter length. The Mercedes-Maybach 6 is expected to be nearly 232 inches long, or even longer than the Mercedes-Maybach S600 sedan, which measures in at 214.6 inches. Also notice the small "Maybach" badge under the three-pointed star.

We wonder if the Maybach coupe will look just as good in the sheetmetal as the Mercedes-Benz Vision Gran Turismo Concept, which debuted two years ago at Pebble. We bet it'll be a close beauty contest.
