German luxury auto major, Mercedes-Benz has displayed a concept sculpture which previews the futuristic and dramatic outlines and exaggerated proportions of the brand’s new electric car concept. This new electric car concept will come under the banner of the EQ - Mercedes’ new electric vehicle brand name, and will be showcased at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance.
The showcased EQ EV sculpture seems to be a larger than life model and is splendidly styled. The flagship single-seater concept luxury electric car has been developed under the internally known Aesthetics Progressive Luxury project. The EV concept’s design language has been inspired by Mercedes-Benz’s spectacular stromlinie (streamlined) Silver Arrows from back in 1930s, on which the W25 Avus, aeroplane engine T80 and W125 were based. The W125 created history when German racer Rudolf Caracciola drove it to a record breaking flying mile average speed of 268.7 mph on the A5 Autobahn back in 1938.
The German auto giant’s new Aesthetics Progressive Luxury is the latest project in a series of very fascinating and futuristic concept models that are conceived under the leadership of Gorden Wagener, design head at Mercedes-Benz.
