Mercedes F 015, aka Luxury in Motion — Looks Like the Future, Driver Not Necessary [PICS, VIDEO]
Currently in Las Vegas, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is in full swing. After taking a look at the jaw-dropper Mercedes just revealed, we wish were there in person. Not to steal it or anything, but … yeah, totally to steal it.
The Mercedes-Benz F 015, humbly dubbed Luxury in Motion, not only looks like it came out of some futuristic movie, it doesn’t even need a driver. Like it or not, the age of the autonomous automobile fast approaches. Thing is, even without having a clue what it’s like to be behind the wheel of one of these, we imagine it’d be an absolute blast to drive. Weird to think that “driving” might merely be an available option on a car in a few years.
One of our favorite bits of design? The merged windshield-sunroof. At first it looked a bit odd, but now it feels like that’s the inevitable look of all cars in the next five to 10 years. The interior is also wild: the four seats all swivel around a small table thing, so, if you wanted, you could have a meeting or play some poker during whatever long trip you’re taking. (We recommend these awesome Prohibition Era cards, btw.)
