The highlight of the event is the Concept Style Coupe, Mike D of Beastie Boys was caught boasting about the CSC, the highlight of the event. He said, “what you are seeing is: The Mercedes-Benz A.K.A Benzo Concept Style Coupé, will be bathed not unlike a young infant in an installation of light and sound. We were inspired by our visit to the Design Center and to Mercedes-Benz’s climate tunnel. We have used the car to create an installation that uses light triggered by sound to startling effect translating the car’s dynamics into real movement.”
