Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion

Even if you’re the kind of man who resents the thought of self-driving cars, you have to be somewhat intrigued by the kind of sci-fi terrain Mercedes-Benz is aiming for.

The concept design for the F 015 Luxury in Motion, this proposed sleek silver pod of the future, is very much a space age thing. It’s fitted with numerous sensors that allow for automated driving, but a manual mode can be selected too, and when it is, a steering wheel will magically emerge from the dashboard as the driver and passenger seats – previously facing your friends the backseat – will turn automatically to face the road. There’s six screens to choose from, each controlled with eye-tracking and gesture recognition, and plenty of walnut, glass, leather and aluminum to soothe your other senses. The exterior mixes plenty of carbon fiber, reinforced plastic, aluminum and steel, with Mercedes saying the F 015 would weigh about 40 percent less than today’s similarly sized cars. Now, we wait.
