      While I still find the proportions almost comical, it looks much better as a cabrio vs. the coupe. The blue paint doesn't hurt it either.

        I really want them to build this amazing car ....but make it a Maybach with a Maybach badge . Now that Rolls no longer makes a Phantom Coupé this would be the grandest two-door luxury car of them all.

        It makes me think that in time Maybach will return to be a serious threat to Rolls-Royce.

          If they did a run of 500 of these and 500 of the coupe's they would sell every single example.

          But whatever they do it must be badged Mercedes Maybach, but with the Maybach grill and insignia.

              Gorden Wagener just completed an IAA design walkaround. The vid can be found on MB's facebook. :)

                I just can't wait to see what they're going to do with all these design cues. The next generation Maybachs are going to be gorgeous.

                    Note the banners that can be seen behind Mr Lamm - Progressive/Modern/Ultimate Luxury.

                    Was this some kind of Design stand?

                    ^ Yes, it's the design display upstairs at IAA, and shown in the second part of this vid, starting with the Mercedes-Benz Starship One. :)

                      Thx Wolfgang, I've just seen that video.

                      On the side note about that video - anyone noticed he refers to the Project ONE as 'X1'?

                        Absolutely stunning car. They should built 500 of them and debut the a V12 at the same time.

                            I can't wait until 2020 so the S-Class rollout can start all over again.

                              Unfortunately the range might be much smaller this time around if the coupe and cabriolet are ditched.

                              I love how Mercedes has such a formidable presence at the high end currently.

                              It balances out the brand with the likes of the A and CLA at the other end.

                                I agree, and that what is everyone who said that the CLA was going to kill Mercedes, doesn't seem to understand. The CLA and GLA can't erase what a S Cabriolet or a AMG GT or E63 does on the same showroom floor. Looking at a G65 or a C63 Cabrio or S600 Maybach kills any damage done to the brand by the CLA.
