The teaser emphasizes the model's long hood and large wheels, which look a bit more realistic than the ones on the Vision 6. The interior has also been toned down slightly from renderings we saw of the previous model's interior, although the minimalist dashboard looks familiar as do the white seats and circular instruments near the steering wheel.

Being a professional racing driver with Mercedes does have its perks. Maro Engel has spent most of his career thrashing Mercedes - AMG GT cars around the world’s greatest circuits. For 2017 he returned to Germany’s DTM touring car series with Mercedes

Maro Engel has spent most of his career thrashing Mercedes-AMG GT cars around the world’s greatest circuits. For 2017 he returned to Germany’s DTM touring car series with Mercedes, but this year is extra special because he also got married. Ordinarily, the special drive after the ceremony would be in a posh limo, or perhaps a convertible so everyone can see husband and wife on their special day. Things are apparently a bit different, however, when you’re a professional racing driver for a major manufacturer.

“When the team offered it to us, we were blown away and thought about how best to manage the half-hour drive,” he said. “It was a crazy feeling, driving off from the church in the Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM together with my wife, along the narrow road through the small fishing village and out onto the coast road.”

At this point, we suspect there are more than a few people wondering how the blushing bride felt about this? According to Engel, he discussed it with her when the team made the offer, and she was all for it.

“She thought the idea was tremendous,” he said. “We lined the seats of the car with large, white tablecloths, and she managed to get in okay with a little bit of help from me.”

As far as wedding cars go, we can’t think of something much cooler than that. And as for the bride being cool with it all, she’s definitely a keeper.
