Mercedes boss drops hints towards new concept car 0


Mercedes Chief Design Officer, Gordon Wagener, has given the most tantalising hint yet via his Instagram that a new Mercedes concept car is in the pipeline, coming “pretty soon” and that the new vehicle will be a “big surprise” and an “icon” when it arrives.

That was pretty much all that was revealed about the forthcoming Merc, but Wagener did say that we’ll be seeing it this summer and hinted that it could be revealed as early as the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance later this month.

The short video teaser shows off a few sketches, albeit of previous Mercedes concepts, such as the Vision Maymach 6 Concept and the IAA Concept from the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015.

The Pebble Beach extravaganza starts on the 20th August and should Mercedes decide to reveal the new car, it will make its debut alongside similar reveals from BMW and Aston Martin.

BMW are set to reveal a concept showcasing the new next-generation Z4, which has also been teased in sketch form. Aston Martin is expected to show off the new Vanquish Zagato, already spotted in Speedster form.
