Default MB Maybach cabriolet concept

Except for the silly interior I like it, the grille is good.

What's NOT to like? Looks stunning and ultra expensive.

When the hood of any car is opened : I (and surely others) expect, specifically of such a large grand car : a massively impressive engine, long rows of cylinders and an impressive finish befitting impressive coachwork.

Instead they have cutlery.

And the interior looks waterproof to clean off the spray tan occupants will certainly leave behind on it.

Mercedes Benz was always steeped in deep layers of it's own marketed sense of richness, their designs are self tributes only more extroverted now.

Just as on the coupe, the tail is 6 feet too long and looks like it would drag the ground over a bump. It's large and vulgar and that's what its intended audience will think is great looking.

On the one hand there is this vulgarity, that marks rich people form Dubai or Moscow, but on the otehr hand there is also a certain resemblance to the 1930ies Merdeced 540K, one of the most elegant designs. At least it looks different, and I tend to like it, despite the "nouveau riche" feel it is giving...

agreed, and it's also a concept where the designer was clearly given free reign, which is a lot more interesting than a production car disguised with 26 inch wheels and extra chrome. this is truly awesome in a way that the Excelero was, and in a way that would've preserved the Maybach brand had they brought out a production version.

Perhaps, but not only did Maybach sedans not have styling that was significantly differentiated from the S Class, the brand itself was pretty much only associated with Hitler and his parade car.

I'd ditch the Maybach name and go with AMG as the brand that is above Mercedes and stop using it as a trim level.

The AMG GT has done pretty well creating the perception that it is something beyond "just" a Mercedes.

which is ironic since Maybachs are actually selling well now that they are simply a trim level of an S class with no real visual distinction other than a longer wheelbase.

The rear overhang is huge, nevertheless, the exterior design generally is stunning.
