Mercedes-Benz Gave us a first look at his upcoming Mebach SL The Roadstar Concept is part of a move to expand its range of high-end vehicles.
Gordon Wagner, Mercedes-Benz’s chief designer, shared an image of the concept Instagram Account
The image shows a frontend sliver of the Maybach SL, which includes the classic Maybach chrome grille, a three-pointed star symbol, a printed Maybach logo and a two-tone red and black color scheme.
The Maybach SL concept features a similar color combination to the Mercedes-Maybach concept EQS, previewing an upcoming Maybach version of the EQS SUV.
It is not clear how different this Mercedes-Mbach SL concept will be compared to the typical Mercedes-AMG SL Roadstar, but the concept bonnet has a single crease in the concept bonnet rather than the normal SL’s Power Bulls when it comes to teaser images.
Mercedes-Benz is currently holding the details of the Maybach SL concept to its chest, and Mr Wagener says it is “for customers who want a sophisticated luxury driving and design experience”.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
The most powerful SL model currently available is the SL 63 4Matic +, powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that produces 430kW of power and 800Nm of torque.
The SL has a more powerful e-performance plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version that is expected to have the same 620kW and 1400Nm output as the AMG GT63 SE.
After the introduction of the V8-powered GLS600 SUV, Mercedes-Maybach no longer offers the V12 engine exclusively, so this type of engine is not guaranteed.
Mercedes-Benz recently confirmed that it is cutting back on the number of smaller models it offers while releasing more high-end vehicles targeting higher margins.
One of these premium cars is the aforementioned Mercedes-Maybach EQS SUV which is set to launch in 2023.
In addition to the more exclusive collector’s version under the Maybatch brand, the Mercedes-Benz “Ultra-Exclusive Collector Car” is launching a new program, similar to the Virgin Ablo’s limited edition Maybatch.
These will come under the banner of the Mythos series and will be exclusively available to the most dedicated Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts and collectors.
Mercedes-Benz recently released a single teaser image of a Mithos car, which appears to be an SL-based speedster.
