The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQ Silver Arrow is the heiress of one of the most beautiful Silver Arrows. This style study (more than a real laboratory car) is dependent on electrical propulsion.
Unveiled on August 25 at Pebble Beach as part of the Monterey Car Week, this Mercedes-Benz is, according to Daimler's own recognition, a machine dedicated to staying unique, completely dedicated to the pleasure of acceleration and driving enjoyment . An inevitable selfish happiness, because the cockpit has only one place. The driver takes place under an air bubble that is articulated upwards and forwards. He can choose between silently spinning around or enjoying a simulator of the engine's voice of the Formula 1 Silver Arrow around 2018, or even a V8 Mercedes-AMG compressor.
The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQ Silver Arrow proudly endorses the role of flagship for the brand new EQ brand, to distinguish the 100% and exclusively electric models from the German manufacturer.
The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQ Silver Arrow also has some features that the concept cars have in common and which precede the first Daimler EQ sedan and compact SUV.
The Mercedes-Benz Vision EQ Silver Arrow stretches 5.30 meters long and only one meter wide. Amazing proportions.
The body is painted in a satin aluminum cap and is made of carbon fiber reinforced resin. Under this silver scale point bright elements: lights, headlights, grille, side air intakes.
The wheels have 168 aluminum spokes, then painted with a pink gold that is already typical of the Mercedes EQ brand.
The pair of rear ailerons both serve to increase the load on the rear wheels (aerodynamic support) and to slow down the car (aerodynamic brake).
The famous Silver Arrow W 125 12-cylinder engine, a one-seater Grand Prix bodywork for speed records in 1937. At the wheel the great Rudolf Caracciola reached the 432.7 km / h on the A5 connecting Frankfurt with Darmstadt. A speed record for open roads that only occurred in November 2017 (Koenigsegg Agera RS with Niklas Lilja).
