This Mercedes Benz inspired concept looks awesome and perhaps it could one day form the basis for a fully autonomous car or even a “villain” car for a Bond movie. Its been created by Matthias Böttcher a automotive and industrial design student in Stuttgart for his final year thesis project and we reckon he’s nailed it as far as concepts go.
Interestingly the SL Pure concept has no windows, front or side, the exception being a transparent roof to diminish the sense of being imprisoned in a vehicle and relay a more passenger friendly driving experience.
Böttcher’s concept rely on autonomous senors and cameras to navigate and is a car designed for the future for a future that is just around the corner. As much as we like the concept we can’t help but think, trust the Germans to design a good looking prison van.
