Mercedes-Benz F125

Mercedes today revealed the F125 concept at the Frankfurt motor show. Claimed to represent ‘a radical reinterpretation of a sports sedan', the new car is also said to preview the next generation S-Class.

Created in close collaboration between the technical research and development departments, as well as the Advanced Design Studios in Sindelfingen and Carlsbad, CA, Mercedes says the exterior design of the F125 is a further development of the company's current design strategy, with organic use of body surfaces, a cab-forward stance and short overhangs. "The real power lies in the elegant, muscular winds and the wheels," says Mercedes-Benz Head of Design Gorden Wagener. "The wheels symbolize electric motors with terminals and coils, and make the drive concept visually tangible as well."

Two gull-wing doors allow access to the cabin, which is further facilitated through the lack of a B-pillar. Developed at the Mercedes-Benz Design Centre in Como, Italy, the assymetrical interior design is said to follow the examples of nature. It is divided into two halves and the contrasts are visually underlined by the color scheme: dark in the front left and light in the right rear. The 17-inch display in the front passenger area is controlled by hand-gestures.
