For the 2011 Los Angeles Design Challenge, which was seeking to find the most spectacular new film car for Hollywood, the designers from the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Sindelfingen (Germany) and Carlsbad (USA), have joined the ranks of the screen-writers.
The designers at the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio in Carlsbad, California have created a Hollywood-style homage for Mercedes-Benz to 125 years of innovation in automotive technology and design. The leading roles are played by two high-tech characters which have been instrumental in reconciling safety and stylish design in automobiles: the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow cult racing car and crash test dummies.
The film "Silver Lightning" is set in the near future, in an age of artificial intelligence. Two crash test dummies by the names of Hans05 and Franz02 take on evil ruler Dr. Crash-Barrier to save their beloved Mercedes Silver Arrow. They engage in an action-packed, nerve-jangling duel with the ruthless battering ram before finally outfoxing him. The Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow Concept is a low-lying sculpture on wheels. A feat of technical innovation is the diagonal, hubless roller which allows steering in all directions. The futuristic Silver Arrow's proportions are reminiscent of the legendary sports car from the late 1930s and the Uhlenhaut SLR from the 1950s.

ETF Mining Trucks MT-240 full turning circle
ETF developed a unique steering system. All wheels are steered at low to
medium speeds reducing tyre wear, while at higher speeds the last two axle
lines gradually change to nearly rigid resulting in better stability. ETF
trucks are equipped with a special speed-proportional steering system. At
very low speeds, such as when spotting the loader, the system requires only
two turns from lock to lock. The whole system works automatically without
interference from the operator..
2015 Mercedes - Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept - Official Promo
On November 20th 2013 (local time), the inaugural model in the Vision Gran
Turismo project, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo, was revealed at
the Mercedes-Benz Research and Development Center near San Jose,
California. The producer of the Gran Turismo series, Kazunori Yamauchi, was
in attendance, sharing the satisfaction of witnessing the unveiling
together with the Mercedes-Benz staff involved in the creation of the car.
Following this, the AMG is scheduled to be transferred to Los Angeles where
it will be displayed at the Mercedes-Benz booth on the opening day of the
LA Auto Show.
In collaboration with the creators of Gran Turismo, Mercedes-Benz has come
up with a striking sports car that features gullwing doors and some
seriously sensuous curves. The image the design team had in mind was that
of a big cat closing in on its prey, and this has been realised in both the
elegance and sense of agility and alertness in the completed model. The
shape of the front grille is modelled on the classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL,
the winner of the Carrera Panamericana in 1952, a race famed for its
unforgiving conditions. However, the grille differs from the classic model
in being made entirely from LEDs, capable of lighting up independently in a
variety of patterns .
The body is distinctive chiefly for its impressive curves and powerful and
prominent fender, both of which follow firmly in the tradition of
Mercedes-Benz's impeccably proportioned sports cars. The car pays homage to
classic competition cars with features that include the use of trigger
catches to fasten both the bonnet and rear hatch. It is also equipped with
a moveable rear wing. The chassis is made from an aluminium spaceframe with
carbon fibre components, meaning that its weight is reduced to 1385kg (3053
lbs. ), significantly lighter than normal for this type of sports car.
Underneath its elongated bonnet, the AMG has an optimised 5.5 litre V8 twin
turbo engine, boasting an output of
585ps (577 BHP) with a substantial torque of 800N-m at 2000-4500 rpm. With
its ultra-light body, the AMG achieves a power-to-weight ratio of
2.37kg/ps. The sound designers for the AMG have come up with an elegant
specially-tuned Exhaust note for the
eight independent Exhaust pipes which
have been integrated into the tail lights. Rival drivers will hear this
strong and distinctive engine roar as the AMG races past them.
With the worldwide release of Gran Turismo 6 on 6th December , you will be
able to get behind the wheel of this incredible car, a revolutionary model
that introduces Vision Gran Turismo to the world*. Get ready to experience
the sports car of the future, brought to you by Mercedes-Benz.
Vision Gran Turismo is a project where the world's leading automobile
manufacturers develop exclusive concept cars for fans of Gran Turismo. The
AMG is the first in a series of audacious and ambitious models that you
will not want to miss.

LA Auto Show 2011 Design Challenge - Mercedes Silver Arrow - Silver Lightning
In homage to 125 years of automotive innovation and design excellence,
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design of North America features a story with two
techno characters that have achieved a unique harmony between safety and
style; the iconic Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow racecar, and the
underappreciated 'Crash test dummy.'

Crash-Barrier seeks to continue his reign of terror and mayhem, the two
heroes take action to save their beloved Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow. They
lead the relentless 'Dr. Barrier' on an action packed thrill ride through
the past and future of transportation.
A long-slung, sculpture on wheels - actually on 'Hoops' - the Mercedes-Benz
Silver Arrow has proportions reminiscent of the Mercedes-Benz W125 series,
a Silberpfeil racecar of the late 1930's and the Uhlenhaut SLR from the
50's. The overall shape follows distinguished Mercedes-Benz design
traditions and is born from a dominant Formula 1 racing legacy. It also
features a diagonally configured, hub-less roller track for
Brought to you by the creators of 'Biome, a car grown from trees', this
epic adventure has it all, including a surprise ending that will have
audiences cheering as our reluctant heroes save the day with a little old-
school subterfuge and help from the great tradition of the Mercedes-Benz

Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the
Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads
autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or
further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle
which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric
motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on
the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet
drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When
underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to
light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are
supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.
