Did you know that the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 is moved by remote control?

The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 was one of the great protagonists of the recently-last edition of the Concours d’elegance of Pebble Beach, which took place last week. A Lancia Astura Pinin Farina Cabriolet, 1936 he was the winner of this contest was the winner of this contest, but even if you don’t arrebatamos the merit is not all of the days makes its debut at a coupe Maybach over almost 6 meters long whose design evokes the golden era of the coupes of the years 20 and 30.

His design surprised us all with her elegant combination between the past and the future. A mechanical to electrical, as well as an interior that seems straight out of a science-fiction film despite its exterior lines that remind us of the sports of yesteryear. However no one told us one of their biggest secrets.


The coupe never-ending hood is not what has led a person to the event elegant and expensive vehicles but instead is handled as a giant radio control car. Armed with a remote control similar to a video-console of last generation, a lord is in charge of moving the vehicle from the safety of the interior of a truck up to the grass and vice versa without the need for access to its interior.

This technology already exists in other production models like the new BMW 7 Series and parking is remote but it is amazing how something so small and look quite basic in comparison with the digital control of BMW to be able to send over a prototype of such a high category.

The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 has a mechanical 100% electrical composed by four high rpm engines, one in each wheel, which working together produce 750 HP. Its energy is stored by a package of batteries of 80 kWh of capacity, enough to go up to 500 km with a single charge. Possibly the remote control ran out of batteries before the vehicle itself.
