Around 15-years ago the property market in the UK was very buoyant and there were huge profits to be made. For several years renovating properties was one of my main passion in life. Vividly remember spending my weekends at salvage yards actively searching for antique radiators, cast iron fireplaces and stained glass windows. I always gravitated towards historical homes from the Victorian and Edwardian era. However, there were also some beautiful 1920’s dwellings within the suburb I lived. The one I purchased required an element of restoration and a certain amount of effort. Ultimately the experience ignited my interest in the glorious ‘Art Deco’ era and its glorious architecture. This is why I am captivated by the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet.
Writing about the automotive industry is a bittersweet experience because it is now virtually non-existent in Australia and the UK. However, German imports have become increasingly popular and in particular Mercedes Benz. As well as manufacturing stylish sedans, coupes and hot hatches, they also have reimagined Maybach. These luxurious limousines are really exquisite and beloved by the corporate sector. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is the companies snapshot of the future, whilst honouring the past. This really is amazing design distilled to its purest form.
Aesthetically the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is one of the best looking cars I have ever seen. The streamlined ‘Art Deco’ inspired curvaceous silhouette of the vehicle is truly inspired and almost sculptural. Internally the luxurious minimalistic theme is continued to give the driver the perfect experience. I delighted to say this model is electric and has an impressive 500km range. Using cutting edge technology, the battery (from flat) can develop enough charge to drive another 100km. It also drives like a sports car and can accelerate from 0-100km in under 4 seconds reaching a limited top speed of 250km. This is really impressive considering the size of the automobile.
