Word on the grapevine is that Mercedes IS going to build something very similar to the AMG Vision (a fictitious hypercar designed around the SLS chassis), but there's not going to be an actual production forecast. If you pay them money they'll hand-build build one for you, on a FCFS basis, with an order window limited to 90 days. What's so special about it? It has the same powertrain as the SLS, essentially, but they're adding a motor at each rear wheel that will be powered by a KERS-type system (but no batteries). They won't power the car on their own, but they will provide additional power, on-demand , to the tune of 500hp and 1000ft/lbs of torque. What does that mean for performance? They claim 0-62mph in 2.5s and 0-160 in 10s flat. The price? A cool 5M Euros.
Okay, this is just getting stupid.
I really like the side profile (minus the outrageous wheels).
What I really like is that the car oozes presence. Its incredible width and comical bulges make it look at home in a sci-fi movie. Pretty much like the GT by Citröen.
I don't care if it doesn't have the current Mercedes design language. I don't care if it doesn't look like a Mercedes at all because ultimately it's a fantasy car and also it's the ultimate expression of the designer's vision and it is absolutely breath taking.
Oh and what a lovely ass.
