When it comes to concept cars, we’d be hard pressed to find any auto maker that gets the internet buzzing quite like Mercedes. Continuing on with that tradition, the brand debuts their wild Mercedes-Benz IAA Concept.
An acronym for Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile, this could be the craziest concept we’ve ever seen from the German luxury brand. Essentially a real-life Transformer, this car is capable of altering its shape in order to improved its aerodynamics. The four-door sedan sports a basic teardrop silhouette, complete with an extra long hood and a truncated rear. Using sensors throughout, the car’s front flaps, active rims, tail end extension, and other mechanical parts will adjust automatically to increase efficiency. The vehicle is being showcased at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, and while it is just a concept, we imagine this type of technology will slowly become incorporated over the next few years.
