It is the same 750 hp electric car as last year, with fearsome acceleration and a range of 500 kilometers (311 mi) but visually, the car achieves so much more. The end result was on show yesterday at Pebble Beach 2017, and as can be seen, it is far grander than most roadsters could hope for.
The hallowed Maybach marque was at its most resplendent during the Art Deco period of the 1920s and 1930s, using architectural proportions to sculpt some of history's most imposing automobiles.
The difference between seeing one of these cars in a picture and in the flesh is stark, and the key to the illusion is scale. In the image, everything looks in proportion but when you stand beside it, it is so large that it intimidates any scene. As can be seen from the debut of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet below, it is an enormous vehicle.
