2018 Mercedes-Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury

2018 Mercedes-Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury

Previews the upcoming Mercedes-Maybach GLS

Revived in 1997 after more than 50 years of absence, the Maybach brand didn’t make much of an impact on the luxury market, with its S-Class-based models failing to impress against the Rolls-Royces and the Bentleys. As a result, Mercedes-Benz discontinued the name in 2012. The brand returned as Mercedes-Maybach in 2015, and although it still delivers revised S-Class sedans with longer wheelbases and more luxury features, it aims to offer other Mercedes vehicles too. Unlike its predecessor, Mercedes-Maybach also produced concept cars, with a pair of Vision 6 two-door models showcasing spectacular designs. Come 2018 and Maybach unveiled its third concept car, this time around design to preview an upcoming SUV.

Called the Vision Ultimate Luxury, this new concept vehicle is said to preview the Maybach version of the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class. However, the concept itself isn’t exactly an SUV, but a hybrid design that combines the features of a utility vehicle with the rear end of a notchback sedan. Inside the cabin, the Ultimate Luxury is actually more production friendly than the Vision 6 coupe, while its all-electric drivetrain is identical with the other two Maybach concept cars. It definitely won’t make it into production in this form, but it previews a few interesting design cues and technologies. Let’s find out more in the review below.

The BSF of the Indian army created four stunt riding records in one month

Atop 350cc Royal Enfields

Breaking motorcycle stunt records is nothing new for the Border Security Force (BSF) of the Indian army.

BSF’s ’Janbaz’ was created in 1990, and they are famous for displaying their gravity-defying stunts and breaking their own previous records.

In the month of April 2018 alone, the Janbaz troop set four motorcycle stunt records, all of which were performed on their darling 350 CC Royal Enfield motorcycles-the face of stunt riding for the BSF.
