If there's any place you want to unveil a mega-luxury coupe, Pebble Beach is it.
Mercedes told us to look forward to a new car being unveiled at Pebble Beach, part of the annual Monterey Car Week festivities. Today, Mercedes tossed out a mysterious teaser on its social media channels. If you think that's a coincidence, congratulations, there's a bridge for sale out there with your name on it.
According to its social media posts, this car is going to be "nearly 20 feet" long, which is only about a foot shorter than the old Cadillac Fleetwood 75, one of the largest production sedans on the planet. But what you see here isn't a sedan -- it's a coupe. It's a 20-foot coupe. Goodness.
Of course, something that big won't fit in with the typical Mercedes-Benz lineup, so it's going over to the brand's big brother, Maybach. How do I know? There's a Maybach badge on it. Maybach's current stable of vehicles includes the Mercedes-Maybach S600, and, well, that's it. It could use some friends, and this coupe will fit the bill perfectly.
There's a chance it could be just a stretched version of the S-Class Coupe, but the silhouette suggests we're in for something different. We'll find out at Pebble Beach, which takes place at the end of August.
