Most concept cars have one thing in common: they never make it to the market because their concept can’t be easily implemented or the car isn’t profitable enough. These Mercedes Benz concept cars, however, are so beautiful and exciting that you’ll want to sell your soul to own one, no matter how unlikely it is that you ever will.
Smart Vision EQ
There are always new and innovative ideas in the automotive industry and sometimes it can be hard to keep up with all of them. So, we’ve taken the liberty of picking out five cars that would make you want to sell your soul (and buy a really expensive car). These include some newer models, as well as older ones for good measure. The Vision EQ Silver Arrow might just be the car of your dreams if you like autonomous driving – think Apple CarPlay on steroids! The W25 concept takes sustainability to another level and even manages to look pretty darn cool at the same time. And how about this? It’s also electric. Did we mention how sustainable it is? And did we mention how futuristic-looking it is? We don’t know what else to say about this thing other than the fact that it looks like something from The Jetsons. Plus, it has a retractable roof which will come in handy if you’re ever stuck outside during an intense summer rainstorm. The Smart Vision EQ Fortwo Electric Drive Concept takes smart to a whole new level. Who needs gas when there’s electricity? Or maybe this is just more ideal for those who live in cities where there isn’t much space or people who need an easy way to maneuver through crowded sidewalks.
AMG GT 4-Door Coupe
This is the first four-door coupe from Mercedes-Benz and is perfect for those who want a car that offers the comfort of a luxury sedan with the exhilaration of an AMG sports car. The AMG GT 4-Door Coupe was first shown at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show and features front and rear air curtains, adjustable air suspension, active exhausts, forged aluminum wheels, and lots more cool features. At launch, there will be two variants: the GT 53 and the more powerful GT 63 S. The engine in the GT 53 has an output of 355 horsepower, while the engine in the GT 63 S has an output of 510 horsepower. With these variants, you can have your choice between a smoother ride or sharper acceleration.
A 45 AMG Roadster For The Masses
Mercedes has a 45 AMG Roadster for the masses. The car is a nod back to the iconic 1950s 300 SL that was hailed as the first supercar, but it will sell at an affordable price of around $65,000 USD. The Roadster has four seats and can reach speeds up to 195 kilometers per hour (120 miles per hour). Along with traditional AMG tuning like reworked suspension and upgraded braking systems, this powerful sports car gets an old-school leather steering wheel. The new engine in the Roadster, 6208cc displacement biturbo V8 turbocharged gasoline engine, makes 362 horsepower with 465 lb-ft of torque. Other features include 19 inch wheels and adjustable air suspension.
One of the coolest, most well-known luxury car makers in the world, Mercedes-Benz has a history of coming up with some of the nicest and high-performance cars imaginable. As part of their prelude in celebration for their 150th anniversary as one of the first major European manufacturers, they revealed several exciting future plans and concepts. The fifth prototype that was revealed is this stylish sports car concept called Prototype 9. It features an electric motor capable of producing over 900 horsepower, allowing it to go from 0-60 mph in less than 2 seconds! It also features LED headlights and taillights, wheel pods that offer protection against impacts, and enough headroom to make even NBA players feel comfortable. Along with being designed to fit four people, Prototype 9 also has a design feature that allows it to provide additional driving assistance or full autonomous control at the push of a button. We can’t wait to see what Mercedes-Benz reveals next!
