F1 driver Lewis Hamilton may be driving some of the fastest cars in the world on a regular basis, but it seems even the Mercedes racer has an improbable wish-list when it comes to mean machines.
The Maybach 6 is a concept car that was unveiled by Mercedes-Benz in 2016.
It is a 2-door coupe powered by an all-electric drive system which produces 750 horsepower and can accelerate to 100 kph in less than 4.0 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph and the battery’s driving range is 200 miles, which is impressive by electric car standards.
Mercedes cars are seen as the epitome of luxury, but their Maybach division raises the bar and the hole in your pocket by a significant margin.
They are seen as the ultimate luxury vehicles owing to their exorbitant price tags, and while Hamilton may be dreaming of Maybach 6, he will have to wait for a while at least before his dream becomes a reality.
Usually, concept cars remain concepts, but hopes are high that Mercedes will make the Maybach 6 available for production in the near future.
Till then, the triple-world champions will have to make do with driving his W08 Mercedes car in the 2017 F1 season.
The 32-year-old trails Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel by 14 points in the drivers rankings but with nine races remaining, has plenty of time to overhaul the German.
The F1 season was on its customary mid-season break but racing resumes this weekend as the action shifts to the iconic Spa-Francorchamps for the Belgian Grand Prix. One can bet Hamilton will be in the thick of action come race-day.
