Full Frontal: Mercedes-Maybach’s Extravagant Coupe Concept Comes Into Focus

Mercedes maybach coupe teaser front

Mercedes-Benz has taken a relatively measured approach in reintroducing the Maybach name into its lineup. After all, the current Mercedes-Maybach S600 looks mostly like a standard S-class sedan with more chrome. But the restraint may have run its course, if the teaser images for Maybach’s new concept car, officially called the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, are any indication.

After teasing a profile that reminded us of a 1930s-era Bugatti, Benz is now showing off the imposing front of this new ultra-luxe two-door, confirming that this new Maybach concept will be grandiose and distinctive. A wide-mouthed grille boasts no less than 25 chrome vertical slats, with the “Maybach” name prominently displayed on the upper edge. Above that is a good-old-fashioned Mercedes-Benz hood ornament, which contrasts with the futuristic-looking slit headlights.

Combine this stately front end with the dramatic profile teaser shown earlier, and we’re expecting big things when this ultra-luxurious concept is fully revealed next week. It certainly seems as if this new Maybach will fit right in at its official debut at the ritzy Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California.
