The car for when a Mercedes-Benz S-Class just isn’t opulent enough

To accommodate this feature, the car is 20 cm longer and 20 cm wider than the long-wheelbase S560.  The rear doors, however, are shorter by 66 mm –so the passengers back there are not so easily seen when the doors are opened, enhancing their sense of privacy.

Last year, Mercedes wowed us all with an electric coupe concept it called the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6. While the name was a bit of a clunker, everything else about it was pure elegance. It was nearly 19 feet long, almost all hood, and rode in silence thanks to its electric powertrain. The Vision 6 is back at Pebble Beach this year, this time without its roof.

New Mercedes-AMG 53 models to pack 430 horsepower turbo inline-six

  New Mercedes-AMG 53 models to pack 430 horsepower turbo inline-six The new engine is expected to debut as the Mercedes-AMG CLS53.We're not going to complain that cost cutting and parts sharing with four-cylinder engines brought about the return of the inline-six. Instead, we'll bask in the glory of silky-smooth revs and perfectly balanced combustion. In the S-Class, this new 3.0-liter engine makes 408 horsepower and over 368 pound-feet of torque. That's a significant step up from the already hearty 333 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque developed by the current V6. In AMG guise, the engine is expected to make about 430 horsepower.

In cabriolet form, the Vision 6 is still impossibly long, wide, and low. Only now, the peasants can get a better look at who's driving. Instead of last year's red, it's been painted blue and rides on new 24-inch alloy wheels. Rims that size would look massive on most other cars, but the Vision 6 Cabriolet is so impossibly long, it actually makes 2 feet ofwheel look appropriate. Of course, since this is a Maybach concept we're talking about, the center lock is painted in rose gold. That's not the only gold decorating the exterior, either. The fabric top also has rose gold threads woven in to match.

Inside, the driver is treated to what Mercedes calls a "360 open-air luxury lounge." As you can see, the cabin is designed to flow around the occupants, wrapping them in luxury. There aren't even really separate seats. Instead, the driver's door panel almost seamlessly transitions into the seat bottom, then into the armrest, the passenger seat, and finally the passenger door panel. And there's no infotainment screen integrated into the dash, either. Instead, the display is part of a strip that encircles the cabin. The dials and air conditioning vents contrast with the rest of the futuristic interior, using analog needles and classic design cues.

There's also a sea of white Nappa leather covering almost every surface you might touch. The buttons used to secure the leather to the seats, for example, each have a Mercedes star on them backlit in blue. Oh, and of course the trim pieces are made from rose gold. The floor is covered in open-pore wood and inlaid aluminum to continue the boat theme that the car's massive length and shape started. The transparent center tunnel, meanwhile, uses blue fiber optics to remind occupants that they're in an electric land yacht from the future.

Speaking of the Vision 6 Cabriolet's electric powertrain,it's even more powerful than the coupe. Instead of 738 hp, it now makes a full 750 hp. Despite the car's incredible size, Mercedes says that's enough to hit 60 mph in less than 4 seconds. It also has a claimed range of more than 200 miles and supposedly gains 60 miles of range on only a five-minute charge.

First Drive: 2018 Mercedes-AMG S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet .
A sunny California day with four high-dollar two-door GermansLOS ANGELES, California—You might expect a first drive of the 2018 Mercedes-AMG S65 Coupe to open with a rosy recollection of motoring down the C te d'Azur through a fragrant waft of lilac blooms. But our defining moment in Benz's $250,900 bercoupe differed slightly—specifically, getting caught in the left turn lane of a bustling intersection along a particularly ruthless stretch of central L.A. 's Pico Boulevard. The light had just switched to red, leaving a split second to accelerate into a hard left turn before angry cross traffic could make minced meat of the German coupe.
