Take a look at the new face of awesome. The Mercedes-Benz F-CELL Roadster brings us back to our horse and buggy roots, minus the smelly horses. With a joystick control, fiberglass body and nifty hydrogen-electric fuel-cell power, we can’t help but salivate over how freakin’ cool this thing looks.
The buggy has rid itself of conventional inventions like the steering wheel and instead, uses a joystick. But if you look past the giant, spoked wheels, the buggy contains all of Mercedes top-of-the-line technologies and boasts a carbon fiber and fiberglass body structure, a compact 1.2 kW fuel cell for power generation and – holy schmoly – a top speed of 16 mph. Whoa there, Tiger.
“This project impressively demonstrates that the topic of sustainable mobility has become an integral part of our vocational training,” said Human Resources Board member and Labor Relations Manager Günther Fleig. “I am delighted to see how much initiative and creativity the young people have put into this project.”
