Mercedes-Benz F 400 Carving

German for Demon Camber.

A subsection of Japanese car tuners specifically those punch-permed deep out in the country side like to give their something known as onikamu demon camber, in English. In a a car with demon camber is a car an obscene amount of negative Click here to see a photo of a with the evilest of all evil Get the idea? Good.

Back Japan’s pre-D1 drifting some of these demon aficionados liked to say that extreme tire tuck was beneficial to overall performance. heard two reasons for this: the reason centers around the that a car with reduced in the front would be easier to

The second theory behind the of demon camber revolves weight transfer. When a car a corner, the centripetal force the car to shift its weight to the outside of the right? Apparently, when an -equipped car takes a corner, weight shift is so great, the negative-cambered wheels will to a (slightly more) upright (meaning less negative and maximize the tire’s contact

Of course, the people that subscribe to these benefits of camber also subscribe to the that punch perms and eyebrows make one look To borrow a slang term the British, the idea that camber is beneficial is rubbish at

. Or so we thought until we saw the Mercedes-Benz F 400 concept, which coincidentally its debut at the 2002 Tokyo Show. Mercedes found a way to the demon camber theory one further and actually make the work.

The F 400 Carving concept is to get away with having amounts of negative camber up to 20 degrees, to be precise — it has the ability to automatically set its tires to a setting of 0 (zero) degrees. this F 400 concept enters a a whole bunch of computers and tell the car’s outer to tilt inward, which to maximize the car’s overall

But truth be told, it’s not the demon camber that the F 400 Carving’s grip on the road it’s the tires. Special — with two separate zones — have mounted at all four corners. In driving, the tires are set fairly to 0 (zero) degrees camber. But in the tire is sitting more on its edges at this point, and outer edges are normal if you will. There isn’t special about this of the tire, so we’ll move

The magic of this special lies in the inside (the closest to the body of the car) of the tread. The F 400 Carving increases the camber of the outside tires taking a turn, right? means that the outside technically are riding on just the corner of the tire itself. inner corner of the tire is and the compound on the inner portion of the is stickier than the normal compound right next to it. the F 400 Carving is cornering on this aggressive compound, Mercedes that the car can achieve 1.28Gs on a thanks to this tire/demon combo.

If we get a closer look at the wheel/tire itself, it also looks the Mercedes engineers stretched the over the rims hippari Did Mercedes just rip off 2002’s drift-influenced styling trends it designed this car?

just so much going on the surface of this car, eye just doesn’t know to look. The F 400 Carving has got to be the concept the most negative space ever seen. It’s chunks of this car were cut away just so designers, PR and/or pompous design can talk with some of authority on how this car does, in have a whole s***load of space. It creates a feeling of Oh. and tension, too. Ignore the design slang (and the Germans in their crazy silver suits) and check out cool bits like the composite body panels, optic-directed Xenon headlights and car-standard scissor doors.

Given all the old Mercedes-Benz concepts been checking out lately, started to notice that the car maker just doesn’t up with wild engineering just for the hell of it. If MB built car (and subsequently showed it off to the we’ll bet a paycheck that the is still working hard to this concept of real-time camber adjustment. How long do you it will be before we see a production with this technology?
