There's nearly zero chance the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet will actually enter production, so those attending this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance will have one of the few opportunities to see it in person.

The glamorous cabriolet reinterprets classic, emotional design principles in an extravagant way and combines intelligent beauty with classic, aesthetic proportions and a reduced, technoid appearance - a ideal embodiment of the design philosophy of Sensual Purity.

Unveiling during this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Eleganc once again, the vehicle "defines the ultimate in luxury of the future", the brand says in a press release. The Maybach was introduced shortly after the company's AMG division unveiled its new hypercar's 1,000 horsepower Formula One-derived hybrid drivetrain.

The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is limited to just 300 examples worldwide.

The Vision 6 Cabriolet is engineered and designed as an electric auto with output of 750 hp and a range of more than 200 miles.

Inside, touch controls and intelligent navigation are to linked appointment calendars and a voice-activated concierge system. This enables full concentration of the tasks of driving.

Other than having an impressive range, the EV boasts AWD with four compact magnet synchronous electric motors.

Talking about the performance, the Mercedes Benz says that the Maybach 6 Cabriolet will go from right 0 mph to 60 mph in less than four seconds with around 155 miles per an hour.

Recharging the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is easy with DC charging that allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. Using this new charger, the super Mercedes has been developed where the vehicle can have around 60 miles with just a charging of five easy minutes. At the same time, these show cars are looking far into the future.

The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is the first full-sized Maybach with an open top that Mercedes-Benz has produced in decades, Bloomberg reported. "We are having Mercedes Maybach as the ultimate luxury brand, and we will expand that brand", he said.

Described as "automotive haute couture", the luxurious convertible is a follow-up to last year's coupe and it features a stylish design that is sure to draw attention.
