Yes, I would like to have one of these.
A couple of days ago we brought you new of the latest concept car from Mercedes-Maybach, called the Vision 6. Today we're publishing the full gallery for you to look through. You'll notice that the concept has the three pointed star which possibly, either shows the future branding for Mercedes-Maybach or that (should it come to market) it will be built by the Maybach division and marketed by Mercedes.

Clearly defined contours and organically formed wings stand in contrast to the sharply drawn, extended feature line on each side which defines the upper vehicle body from the radiator grille across the entire length of the vehicle to the rear. Below this, the main body has a bulging, muscular look, extending across the entire flank. There is also a striking contrast between the Maybach red paintwork and the chrome strips which sit above the wheel arches and in the centre of the bonnet and boot lid.

A reinterpretation of the Mercedes-Maybach radiator grille with its fine, vertical struts accentuates the front end. The grille was inspired by a pinstriped suit. The radiator grille rests on two aerodynamically shaped supports on the outer right and left of the bumper.

The distinctive 24-inch wheels are a development of the aero rim from the Concept IAA (Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile). A transparent shield in the vehicle colour provides a view of the aluminium spokes behind it.

A further highlight is provided by the gullwing doors, a hallmark Mercedes design element which has been brought up to date. They underline the sporty character of the vehicle's silhouette and feature innovatively designed aluminium trim. The exterior mirrors designed as cameras are supported on the wings.

The extended, round "boat tail" format of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6's rear recalls a luxury yacht, and narrow tail lights which emphasise the width of the vehicle are integrated into its outer edges. Above this sit the two extremely shallow rear windows ("split window"). Further distinctive features at the rear include the diffuser with an aluminium frame and the air outlets behind the wheel arches.

The complexities of film (and story) copyright rules, and the history of acquisitions, will make your head spin. Fortunately, the story is so well presented here.

I was just watching the latest episode of the Newsroom and saw my favorite Podcast (ahem netcast) network on the screen of one of the staffers. So cool!

I was just raving about the new Serial podcast and found a funny video about people who are obsessed with Serial; even launching a podcast about the serial podcast. Heh.
