The luxury sub-brand of Mercedes, Maybach, has released a teaser of a 6m long mega-coupé concept; revealing the future direction of the brand, the car will be named the Mercedes-Maybach 6.

The front of the concept car looks to strut slim headlights, a large chrome grill and door mirrors likely to use cameras as opposed to glass.

The Maybach will make its debut at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and we cannot wait to see the demonstration of “6 metres of ultimate luxury” in the flesh!

The new Range Rover will gain driver assistance technology, a new supercharged V6 petrol engine and a racy SVAutobiography Dynamic trim level; the Dynamic model will feature chrome quad tailpipes, unique graphite-coloured exterior detailing, red Brembo brakes and special alloy wheel choices. Amendments to the suspension have also taken place, demonstrating an 8mm lower ride height. In addition, nineteen new colours will be available to choose when ordering the new model, including a choice of matte paints and gloss paints. One for the Signature Car Hire fleet, perhaps…
