There is a lesson there about parking (or stopping) a modern car in long grass. I heard a similar story about 20 years ago with a very expensive Jaguar on loan to a journalist. The Jag was driven through some thick lawn clippings on a wet road the clippings dispersed themselves into the engine bay. An outright fire was avoided but the car was smoking when stopped for fuel.

I like what mercedes are doing here with design... if life could just be so simple .... I've always liked the simplicity of older classic cars... I do hope one day styling could return in that sense. ps current mercedes is about 100 miles off from this with senses overload ! so some ways to go...

"In 1901 at Race Week in Nice, our visionary Emil Jellinek debuted a high performance car that the world had never seen - the Mercedes 35 PS.

This week, our team unveiled the Vision Mercedes Simplex, a representation of our transition into a new era of design, with the same passion for luxury and innovation running through our DNA."

That is one gorgeous car!!👌

 

My parents owned a humble but brilliant Peugeot 404 at one stage and it was a Pininfarina design. Laugh at me but I can see shades of that in this.....especially the front.🙂
