A Benz With The Bends

Someone at Mercedes-Benz is either truly inspired or clearly suffering from dementia. What better way to showcase the future of hydrogen-electric fuel cell technology than with this stunning roadster concept. For nearly a year, 150 “trainees and dual education system students worked on the overall concept, development, assembly, and completion of the F-CELL Roadster.” Basically a bunch of design students were brought on by Daimler to “demonstrate how the topic of sustainable mobility has become an integral part of our vocational training…” The result is not only a throw back to the Benz Patent Motor Car from 1886, but a leap forward with integrated next-gen technologies like a drive-by-wire joystick replacing the traditional steering wheel and an emission free fuel cell system. Handle-bar mustache and goggles sold separately.
