Among the highlights of the ESV was the Mercedes-Benz unveiling of the ESF
2009 an experimental safety vehicle with trailblazing innovations

2009 ESF Mercedes Concept Safety Vehicle
The ESF 2009 is the first Experimental Safety Vehicle to be built by
Mercedes-Benz since 1974. Like its historic predecessors, it illustrates
trailblazing innovations in the field of safety and makes the progress
achieved clearly visible. These amazing but by no means crazy ideas include
inflatable metallic sections which give more stability to structural
components within fractions of a second, as well as the so-called "Braking
Bag". This airbag, housed within the vehicles floor, is deployed when a
crash is deemed to be unavoidable, and uses a friction coating to support
the vehicle against the road surface.

For over 80 years Mercedes-Benz has built special protection vehicles. The
exterior is hardly distinguishable from the production sedans.
2015 Mercedes Maybach S600: Your Car Is Ready, Sir - Ignition Ep. 126
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Tire Rack, Carlos Lago tests the
new 2015 Mercedes Maybach S600. Though it has a twin-turbo V-12 and more than 600 lb.-ft. of torque,
this car isn’t about driving. No, the Maybach S600 is all about being
chauffeured in quiet comfort while your driver calmly shuffles to your next
destination. When it comes to the Maybach’s long wheelbase and
never-ending supply of luxury features, doing the normal Motor Trend test
program seemed wrong. So we did something different. How well does the
Maybach work when chauffeuring an elite Internet celebrity? Find out on
today’s episode of Ignition.
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.
