Australian personality Alex 'Supercar Blondie' Hirschi showed off the jaw dropping Mercedes Maybach Vision 6 Cabriole, giving fans a glimpse into the future of electric vehicles.
Supercar Blondie has one of the most popular automobile channels on YouTube, drawing in millions of viewers by showing off luxurious cars that cost more than some of us could make in a lifetime.
However, the Australian also gets access to vehicle makers' future projects, such as the Mercedes Maybach Vision 6 Cabriole during her February 12 upload. The mind-blowing electric vehicle gives fans a peek into the direction the industry is going in.
The Mercedes Maybach Vision 6 Cabriole
The car enthusiast flew to Germany to take an in-depth look at Mercedes' futuristic concept car. After showing off its lengthy body, she explained the vehicle's name. "Why is it called the Vision 6? Because this car is actually six meters long. That is a really, really long car. The back here looks like a yacht!"
Alex then showed off the car's beautiful white interior, which includes rose gold trimming on the floor and gas pedal. She then pointed out that the seats are lined with badges of the car maker's iconic logo, and they light up.
On of the most striking features of the car is its "classic" look on the outside, which the YouTuber elaborated on. "The idea behind this design is that this car could be considered beautiful in any decade. In a 100 years time, this will still be a stunning looking car. It's very classic in its design," she said.
Despite its timeless outer appearance, the Australian showed off the vehicle's futuristic center console, which has see-through wires that light up various colors. It gives off the effect that the car has energy flowing through it.
Breaking down Mercedes projected stats for the vehicle, she stated, "They're looking at four electric motors. Providing about 750 horsepower. Zero to 100 in under 4 seconds. And the range would be just over 200 miles."
While electric cars still face limitations for how long they can go before needing a recharge, the car enthusiast reassured viewers that the manufacturer is looking into it. "The other thing they're really working on, and they want to see this integrated into a lot of their electric cars in the years to come, is how quickly you can charge them."
