Last year, Mercedes wowed us all with an electric coupe concept it called the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6. While the name was a bit of a clunker, everything else about it was pure elegance. It was nearly 19 feet long, almost all hood, and rode in silence thanks to its electric powertrain. The Vision 6 is back at Pebble Beach this year, this time without its roof.

In cabriolet form, the Vision 6 is still impossibly long, wide, and low. Only now, the peasants can get a better look at who's driving. Instead of last year's red, it's been painted blue and rides on new 24-inch alloy wheels. Rims that size would look massive on most other cars, but the Vision 6 Cabriolet is so impossibly long, it actually makes 2 feet ofwheel look appropriate. Of course, since this is a Maybach concept we're talking about, the center lock is painted in rose gold. That's not the only gold decorating the exterior, either. The fabric top also has rose gold threads woven in to match.

Inside, the driver is treated to what Mercedes calls a "360 open-air luxury lounge." As you can see, the cabin is designed to flow around the occupants, wrapping them in luxury. There aren't even really separate seats. Instead, the driver's door panel almost seamlessly transitions into the seat bottom, then into the armrest, the passenger seat, and finally the passenger door panel. And there's no infotainment screen integrated into the dash, either. Instead, the display is part of a strip that encircles the cabin. The dials and air conditioning vents contrast with the rest of the futuristic interior, using analog needles and classic design cues.

There's also a sea of white Nappa leather covering almost every surface you might touch. The buttons used to secure the leather to the seats, for example, each have a Mercedes star on them backlit in blue. Oh, and of course the trim pieces are made from rose gold. The floor is covered in open-pore wood and inlaid aluminum to continue the boat theme that the car's massive length and shape started. The transparent center tunnel, meanwhile, uses blue fiber optics to remind occupants that they're in an electric land yacht from the future.

Speaking of the Vision 6 Cabriolet's electric powertrain,it's even more powerful than the coupe. Instead of 738 hp, it now makes a full 750 hp. Despite the car's incredible size, Mercedes says that's enough to hit 60 mph in less than 4 seconds. It also has a claimed range of more than 200 miles and supposedly gains 60 miles of range on only a five-minute charge.

Brabus Turns Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet into a Rocket 900 .
<p>Your hair will get tussled at 217 mph<br></p>Based off the already stupendously powerful Mercedes-AMG S65 Cabriolet, Brabus takes the twin-turbocharged 6.3-liter V-12 engine, enlarges the bore, ups the size of both turbochargers, installs a new exhaust manifold, and a new ECU. This ups the S65's power from 621 to an eye-watering 887, or as much horsepower as Porsche's 918 Spyder hypercar.
