The new Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept has been the talk of the town since it was unveiled at Monterey Car Week. From its massive size and sleek styling to its electric powertrain, why wouldn’t everyone be talking about this luxurious ride? Well, there is one aspect about the car that not many people have been noting: it can be driven via a remote control.
In a video released by Marchettino today, we get a chance to see the remote control functionality of the car in action on the green at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. In the video we see a man with a remote control driving the 738 horsepower luxury coupe on the grass. While he didn’t drive the car fast, it was still quite impressive. However, he does say to a woman trying to take a picture with the car that it is an “autonomous car.” If it were, in fact, autonomous it would be able to act on its own without human control (see Tesla Auto Pilot).
Anyways, check out the video below to see it in action and catch a glimpse of its spectacular nighttime light display.
