Mercedes-Benz retro concept recalls the birth of cars

In 1901, the Mercedes 35 PS appeared – a car that conceptually differed from all existing at that time and which to this day remains the prototype of modern cars with an internal combustion engine.

Almost 120 years after the premiere of the 35-horsepower modern car, Mercedes introduces the conceptual “Vision Mercedes Simplex.” The German automaker has shared some images of the concept roadster in retro style. The vintage look of the concept is combined with heavily on modern technology.

Mercedes-Benz reported that the concept is equipped with an alternative drive with independent wheels, probably with built-in electric motors. The car does not have a windshield, the radiator grille is replaced by a 3D display with a rosé gold frame, and under the hood, there is a power plant using alternative energy sources.

The right information is shown on display at the right time, for instance, the speed, navigation instructions, or vehicle information. Other information is displayed on the instrument panel depending on the situation.

The design of both the steering column and the switches on the instrument panel were inspired both by motorcycles and by nautical design. The bench seat is inspired by stylish furniture; the hand-made Chesterfield quilting denotes a contemporary interpretation of classically luxurious handcraftsmanship.

The creators of the unusual concept called Vision Mercedes Simplex explained it as “the heritage and future of the luxury brand Mercedes-Benz.”
