The Mercedes Vision Is a Vision to Behold
Mercedes unveiled it’s retro Mercedes Vision EQ Silver Arrow at this year’s Pebble Beach. The sleek new Arrow’s design paid homage to the world-renowned Mercedes W125 that held the public road speed record from 1937-2017.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking this is an updated version of the W125. While it does have the same design philosophy, the EQ Silver Arrow is made entirely of carbon fiber and sports the EQ lettering of Mercedes sub-brand.
Light strips run along the bottom of the car and connect the low profile headlights. To take the idea of “sleek” even further, the 255/25 R 24 front tires are partially covered. Furthermore, the back 305/25 R 26 tires finish out the “prowler” feel of the car.
Is This EQ Silver Arrow Really Electric?
There’s no doubt about it, electric vehicles have come a long way. The Arrow is fully electric, running on an 80 kWh battery. Its motor delivers 750 hp and has a range of up to 248 miles.
If the outside of this car doesn’t have saliva dripping off your chin, then consider the interior.
- Genuine Leather Seats
- Solid Walnut with Contrasting Inlays
- Polished Aluminum Accents
And then there are the panoramic screen displays…
Forget the very practical 3D projection of your rear surroundings. Let’s talk about the ability to superimpose a virtual race track on the road ahead of you. Add ghost cars that you can race and see how meshing the virtual with the real creates a whole new reality.
PLUS… you can even configure sound settings so that your “electric” vehicle shirks stealth mode and sounds like a Formula 1 racer, or a V8-powered gas engine. How cool is that?
