Looking like what I can only assume is a car-lover’s wet dream, the Mercedes Benz 2040 Streamliner concept puts two absolutely gnarly looking turbines on the back of a ‘Type Monza’ style streamlined body. I mean LOOK at those thrusters!!
Designed for a futuristic world where autonomous cars will take over, the 2040 Streamliner is built to be so powerful, it aims to displace air travel, allowing the car to perform interstate travel at incredible speeds. Obviously in order to achieve that, super-highways would have to be set up all over the country, built exclusively for self-driving automobiles. I wonder if it would be cheaper than a flight ticket though!
