Having almost made it to its official Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance unveiling tomorrow, the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 coupe has been unofficially unveiled online ahead of schedule.
New images of the car show a closer look at some of the details revealed during its teaser campaign, including a huge waterfall grille up front, flanked by slender headlights that break away from the current grille-hugging headlights of the current Mercedes-Benz range.
Further to that, we can now see that Mercedes has chosen to play the nostalgia card, endowing the ‘6’ with a pair of gullwing doors, and, although not expressly shown, cutlines in the bonnet indicate a centrally-hinged butterfly bonnet.
What lies under that long bonnet remains a mystery, however a version of Mercedes-Benz’ twin-turbocharged V12 engine is the most likely candidate.
On the inside, the Mercedes-Maybach 6 is stuffed with the kind of luxury you’d expect from a Rolls-Royce competitor with early images depicting a front sofa seat that wraps itself over the centre console, into the doors and all the way across the dash.
As expected of any modern concept, information is key; in this instance not just displayed on a pair of dials ahead of the driver, but also on a display that runs the width of the instrument panel and augmented by a full-screen head-up display.
Despite everything we can see so far, there’s still sure to be plenty more information as the car is officially unveiled tomorrow - not to mention the rivalry sure to be brewing with Cadillac set to unveil its own grand concept.
Until that happens, you can also check out the latest shadowy teaser video below.
