Mercedes-Benz, the German automobile manufacturing giant, has released a cryptic message and image on its Facebook page about a 6 meter car. The image depicts the silhouette of a sleek, luxurious, and lengthy red vehicle accompanied by the caption, "Hot & cool -- almost 6 metres of ultimate luxury." There are currently no 6 meter cars on the market, as such lengthy designs went out of fashion after the stretch Cadillacs and Buicks of the 70s.
Though there's no hard information to supplement the Facebook post, Mercedes-Benz junkies have noted that the teaser image looks similar to the Exelero, a car concept from Benz's luxury partner, Maybach. Indeed, the file name on the image posted to Facebook is "maybach_concept_coupe_1.jpg," lending credence to the theory that the new vehicle might be an update of the Exelero.
