150 Mercedes-Benz trainees teamed up for a year to engineer, design and build the F-CELL roadster, and the resulting car—despite being built on bike wheels and only going 24kph—is stunning.
The spokey F-CELL melds two of the most disparate automotive influences imaginable, recalling the designs of the company's earliest open-wheeled roadcars as well as today's sleek Formula One racers. The fuel-cell-powered roadster is completely drive-by-wire, and is controlled via a joystick.
The project was intended to teach new employees about alternative drive systems, not represent any kind of product Mercedes is planning on building. This is likely down to the fact that Mercedes isn't run by insane people. [Daily Mail]
