Design Concept of the Day #6: Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow

And finally, the Mercedes studio’s entry into the Los Angeles Auto Show Design Challenge. Its would-be Hollywood hero is inspired by the classic Silver Arrow racers – specifically the W125 Silberpfeil of the late 1930s and the Uhlenhaut SLR of the 1950s, apparently – and the plot involves a pair of crash test dummies who take matters into their own hands against the evil Dr. Barrier. The reluctant heroes save the day, of course, “with a little old-school subterfuge.” More at the Design Challenge website.
