For the 2011 edition of the Design Challenge hosted at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz German-based Interior Design Studio has created the Maybach Berline, a futuristic reinterpretation of the Berline luxury carriage from the 17th century.
The concept features two-piece horizontal swing-doors which exploit the special proportions of a carriage: high body and maximum space for occupants.
The scale model pictured in the photos showcases a particular attention to detail and an interesting mix of materials, including carved wood, chromed trims and realistic seat upholstery.
The vehicle was presented together with modern Cinderella tale. For more details on the story and the design check our dedicated article.
