Photos of the Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury Concept have leaked ahead of its schedule debut. The leak has invalidated reports that this ultra-lux concept is foreshadowing the next GLS Class. Instead, this concept is some kind of tall sedan thing.
Honestly from the photos it’s difficult to categorize this vehicle into a specific segment. It looks like a sedan, but appears to have a hatchback-style rear and the suspension is clearly lifted beyond that of a traditional sedan. Basically this concept is blurring all kinds of lines.
What isn’t blurred is its design theme. The Ultimate Luxury Concept is definitely giving us a preview of the Mercedes-Maybach’s future design theme. In this case, it’s taking the design language from Mercedes-Maybach’s other Vision 6 concepts the brand has recently shown.
Of course, a posh interior is found inside the tall sedan thing. With comfy lounge seating for four adults, there’s leather wrapped on nearly every surface. Like the exterior, Maybach traits are found throughout the cabin, such as quilted leather and Maybach branding accents.
Since these photos have been leaked unofficially, further details and specifications of the Ultimate Luxury Concept are still to be determined. Mercedes will formally reveal this vehicle next week at the Beijing auto show.
