Car and Driver: Oh, May: Mercedes-Benz Previews Stunning Mystery Maybach Coupe


Recommended Posts

Mercedes-Maybach mystery concept


If chef Emeril Lagasse could be hired to help out with a car’s debut, he would be perfectly appropriate for the mystery vehicle Mercedes-Benz is teasing ahead of this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. BAM! We can’t think of a better sound than Lagasse’s frantic catchphrase to introduce this stunning two-door coupe.


And now, if you would pick your jaw up off the floor, we have more exciting news: Whatever this creation is, concept car or production-intent masterpiece, it’s a Maybach. At least, it has a Maybach badge on its haunch, as well as a Mercedes-Benz three-pointed-star hood ornament poking up from its nose. If this is indeed a new Maybach model—or a preview of one—the double badges make sense. Today’s Maybach sedan is really just a mighty special dressed-up S-class dubbed the Mercedes-Maybach S600. This coupe would appear to be walking the same existential line.


Whatever the marketing folks decide, just look at the thing. It certainly isn’t a Mercedes-Benz S-class coupe playing dress-up. Even in this dark, intentionally obscured photo, the car has serious presence. The proportions are more 1930s Bugatti coupe than 2010s-era anything, with a hugely long hood draping into the body sides beneath a low, teardrop-shaped greenhouse and a massive rear overhang in the tapered rear end.


We can’t wait to see the car in full soon.
