Lower and more aggressive-looking, it is unmistakably a Mercedes-Benz and the flanks even show hints of the CLS. Styling bucks are wood sections that are placed on a frame… Continue Reading »

From the mind of Hungarian designer Peter Vardai comes this Mercedes design study named the Blackbird. Vardai’s inspiration for the concept was the SR-71 Blackbird spy plane, a machine that evokes images of purpose and speed. Looking at the shots of the design study, these are the same impressions that one gets. An image of a vehicle with purpose, and, to some, it may appear to be a bit menacing.

The message that the design study seems to impart is that Mercedes is a company that embraces the future and… Continue Reading »
