MercedesBenz-concept speedster
One more Mercedes from me. This time I've decided to create a model of my own. In other words to design a model. I intended this one to be the Heir to the throne of the 1934-Mercedes-Benz-540K-Autobahnkurier kingdom. I wanted it to be futuristic and retro at the same time but also lighter than the 540K model I've done simply because I wanted it to drive via remote controls and it does that very well I have to say. Now as for these functions they are not something new in a technical sense but I did make it as compact as I could. For instance the battery box is under the seats, driving motor is on the far back side, steering motor is right in front of the battery box and the sensors are placed between windshield and the hood. So you can't actually know if this thing actually drives because it certainly doesn't look like all this fits into it considering the design. Ah yes and there are also lights and their switch. You'll also notice a whole lot of parts that are not always applicable but they sure came in handy for this. As for the video - It's just there to prove that it really does drive via remote control. This is the first time I've encountered Adobe Premiere pro and I've just started to get the hang of it, so you'll notice it don't have any sounds. The camera on the phone is mono and I just haven't found a way to make it stereo and the software just won't recognize it, but what the hell. At least it shows the functions.
About this creation

As you can see the cockpit has a glass roof


Wheels as you can see are kind of detached from the body. They have their own mudguards, actually they are covered in mudguards (I thought it'd be cool) so the only thing you can see turning here is a Mercedes logo on the wheels. Ah yes and there's also independent suspension system


This is how steering looks like


Steering wheel is visible here. It turns with the wheel. A little touch of reality


Doors and light. Lights have a switch at the center of the dashboard


And there it is alongside the rest of the controls, blibs and blobs


Ah yes, the heart of every vehicle. I thought that under the front hood there could be some kind of energy generator that compresses a lot of energy making this thing go fast for miles and miles without recharging and at the back there is the real technic motor.


Everything opened

Quoting Pablo Lopez WoW. You won't believe, but I've dreamed this car. Not exactly like this, of course. It was a long time ago, but I still remember the car. The problem was that I woke up, and I was depressed because it was so beautiful and I lacked the skills to draw it and the pieces to build it. BUT NOW, I'm working on my best project ever!
Sorry for responding so late but... really? You dreamed something like this in your version? That's odd and interesting at the same time. You are working on your dreamcar now? I definitelly want to see that one happen! Good luck!

Fantastic MOC! It's good to see something as unusual as this. I especially love the separated mudguards, the backend and the color design!

So weird but so good! I like all the functions and the suspension is excellent! The whole thing looks very retro but at the same time very crisp and modern.

There's more invention and style here than in most of Mercedes' actual concept cars. Bravo!

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe Even after reading your intro, I went and googled for Merc. concept cars, as this one looks so realistic.
Heheh, you thought that this concept car really exists? Now that's what I call a compliment :)) . But also thank to everyone who commented!

Really, really amazing creation! Even after reading your intro, I went and googled for Merc. concept cars, as this one looks so realistic. I especially like the front-and back parts in diagonal positions. A very clever construction!

This concept is just so realistic. If you ask me, Mercedes could really create this car. I really like how you combined modern and classic. The interior is amazing and the design is one of the best I've ever seen. Those Mercedes logo's in the wheelarches are just the icing on the cake.

WOW! what a unique concept! I'm loving the whole retro-future tone,completed with the steering system. Very facinating design that I'm sure I've not seen before. :D
