The F800 Concept features a bold front-end, LED lights, and ‘revolve-and-slide’ rear doors. According to Mercedes-Benz’s Head of Design, Gorden Wagener, “The exciting vehicle-like roof line, and in common the vehicle’s balanced proportions, provide it a chic sporty look that reinterprets the Mercedes-Benz intention idiom and emphasizes the sculptural person of the F800 Style.

Under the covering, the notion uses a higher multi-plunge platform which can accommodate a fuel section or a spin-in cross organism. According to Mercedes, “Each of the propel systems takes up comparatively little hole for the installation. This applies in particular to the emotional effort with fuel group, which has been enhanced by Mercedes-Benz to be compact and brawny. The front end’s compact container was made doable through the consistent downsizing of all F-CELL components. As an answer, the entire interior break is preserved and offers abundance of extent for five occupants.”
The socket-in mixture consists of a 300 hp (224 kW) V6 gasoline engine and a 109 hp (81 kW) cross module. Packing a pooled 409 hp (305 kW), the theory accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds and has top hurry of 155 mph (249 km/h) or 75 mph (121 km/h) in exciting means.

In crate you were wondering, the cross a lithium powered module-ion array, which can be recharged by a pattern household passage.
The fuel chambered theory uses an emotional motor that produces 136 hp (101 kW) and 214 lb-ft (290 Nm) of torque (estimated). It skinned components “taken from the array of open e-need modules, which Mercedes-Benz urbanized for a type of different emotional vehicles. These components, which are already installed in the imperfect newspaper B-Class F-CELL, can be used supplely and are right for a diversity of different guide configurations.” The fuel section is located in the front, while the exciting motor is installed near the rear axis. Power entrance from a lithium-ion series is emotional by “chemically reacting hydrogen with oxygen onboard the vehicle.”
Besides complex powertrains, Mercedes packed the Style concept with tons of technology. Goodies embrace a future COMAND technique (with a touchpad on the pinpoint console and a camera that report videotape images of the abuser’s hand as it mechanism the pad, which enables it to grant feel travels such as wiping, pushing, turning, and zooming), a 360 amount “Range on Map” perform for the navigation order, a new DISTRONIC PLUS practice with Traffic Jam Assistant (which handles steering and acceleration/braking – up to speeds of 25 mph), and a new PRE-SAFE 360 mark procedure (which engages the brakes harshly 600 milliseconds before an expected rear-end overlap).
Inside, the Mercedes F800 Concept cabin features lightweight seats (made of magnesium and carbon character), swish wood veneers, and a flowing center console.
