Frankfurt Auto Show: Benz F700 Research Revealed

This morning we you the video. now clock the static This is Mercedes’ idea of the The future of luxury to be specific. it’s three-shades of bling and chock full of the luxo-goodies expect on the finest yachts, but it sports a turbo-charged, direct diesel motor with deactivation and a hybrid support Which makes it greenish. We the F700’s pretty sharp too. Mega press after you jump. [via Car Fans ]

Unfortunately the one of us that’s up this post doesn’t a lick of German o. Read Read on

Definition of relaxed

In the words of Professor Dr. Herbert responsible for Group Research Engineering Vehicle and Powertrain at AG, With the F 700, Mercedes-Benz what the big touring sedan of the will look like. It environmentally compatible mobility with utmost comfort and an superior drive.

With the F 700 meets the growing demands on automobiles. The focus is on conserving and protecting the environment: low consumption, low CO2 low pollution levels. For in future will continue to be considerable for the comfortable mobility provided by sedans.

Making this of mobility sustainable is a major which Mercedes-Benz faces up to in an way. The F 700 is an unmistakable sign of as a research car it demonstrates with approaches and technologies not only how can be conserved and the environment protected, but how driver and passengers can be relieved of and can travel completely at ease.

mobility only can be realized by research and development. Technological is decisive for creating suitable for an increasingly more critical says Professor Dr. Herbert

DIESOTTO provides a glimpse of the of the spark-ignition engine

The F 700 research car shows new ways to resource-conserving mobility. The heart of the car is the drive system which the advantages of the low-emission spark-ignition with the consumption advantages of the drive.

The diesel engine’s advances to its current combination of performance and low fuel consumption made possible by turbocharging and direct injection — pioneering achievements of Mercedes-Benz. The drive takes this decisive steps further: downsizing through reduction of and the number of cylinders makes for efficiency, and a hybrid module the internal combustion engine in stop-and-go operation. Moreover, the principle with controlled ignition (CAI) makes its in the spark-ignition engine.

Forward-looking — economical, clean and powerful

On starting and at full the air-fuel mixture is not ignited by a as in a conventional gasoline engine. The auto ignition (homogeneous to which the DIESOTTO automatically within its working cycle under partial load i.e. at low and medium engine

As a result of homogeneous combustion at reaction temperatures, very low of nitrogen oxides are produced. The of the emission control work in the drive is handled by a standard catalytic converter. In addition, in to combine the individual subsystems one drive concept, a highly engine management and control has been implemented.

The drive of the F 700 is a compact four-cylinder with a of 1.8 liters, and yet it ensures that of effortless, superior power by a luxury sedan: a two-stage system ensures good and torquey pulling power. In when the car moves off the internal engine is assisted by the electric of the hybrid module. The maximum is 175 kW (238 hp), the electric pitches in another 15 kW (20 hp), and the maximum torque is

about 400 Newton meters. The 0 to 100 (62 mph) sprint time of 7.5 attests to the dynamics of the F 700, top speed is limited to 200 km/h. these outstanding performance the consumption of the F 700 in the standard cycle is about 5.3 liters, equivalent to CO2 of 127 grams per kilometer — low for an automobile of this category.

intelligence packed into the

Similar advances are made by the F 700 in the of ride comfort. Mercedes-Benz has been a leader in the area of roar/tire vibration characteristics and comfort: the Active Body suspension system in the CL-Class, S- and sets the standard worldwide its unrivaled combination of comfort, safety and dynamics. This is now surpassed by the new technology of the F 700.

For once again, the new research car an important step to the future: to its active PRE-SCAN suspension, the not only responds with sensitivity to roadway unevenness; than that, it acts foresight.

PRE-SCAN uses two sensors in the front headlamp as eyes. They deliver a image of the condition of the roadway. on the image supplied by the laser and the information on the vehicle state, the unit figures out a specific which the high-pressure hydraulics into precisely calculated flows and pressures for each wheel.

Aqua Dynamic as new idiom

The exceptional efficiency of the concept of the F 700 is evident at first its design is distinguished by soft, forms. Aqua Dynamic is the the designers have given to design idiom with they translated the flow of a fish into the design of an automobile. Besides, the design an immediately indication that room has been given to the With an overall exterior of 5.18 meters the F 700 is a little than the current long-wheelbase of the S-Class, but with its generously wheelbase of 3.45 meters the car excels the production model by 28.5 centimeters.

The side view of the F 700 is marked by the curves of the roof contour and line. This sedan a new interpretation on a design theme of for the current CLS also displays tense lateral lines. The shaped front wheel likewise are inspired by a current — the S Class. After even a research car is always a and stands on the foundation of the automobile with the richest tradition in the

The eyes of the F 700

The headlamps of the F 700 are a futuristic of the Mercedes-typical twin-headlamp face. Two rows of linear LED arrays superposed lens have the of driving lights. A third row of single high-performance LEDs are the driving lights. Together the continuous contour lights give the F 700 an unmistakable appearance by night. The eyes of the F 700 are integrated the headlamps: these laser gather the roadway data for the PRE-SCAN suspension. Unlike any automobile this sedan the surface profile of the road of it.

The driver’s door also its surroundings attentively. In the base of the of this PRE-SCAN door is a very compact laser which examines the area in the door swings open for any If collisions threaten, the door is by a controllable hydraulic cylinder.

and lightness: the interior

The extremely and flexible interior concept is outwardly not only by the long Two large glazed areas in the also emphasize the spacious Owing to the use of natural materials leather and cork and to a harmonious and beige color scheme, the makes an elegant and light and appears very up-scale.

The right rear door of the F 700 is at the rear. Reversing the direction in the door opens makes it to get into the REVERSE seat another innovation in the new Mercedes-Benz car. The REVERSE seat is the of the new seating concept, a completely new thought out for the right rear It breaks up the firmly established arrangement of a sedan and instead individual seat and rest both facing the direction of and in the opposite direction.

Relax and cinema atmosphere

This the opportunity for very different of use depending on the purpose and duration of Four persons sit in the conventional way the direction of travel. If the front seat is unoccupied, at the push of a the right rear seat can be to a relax position. To do this one the front passenger seat and folds the backrest towards the Another use is made possible by the functionality of the REVERSE seat rear seat). A new type of allows the passenger to sit in reverse and look out the back. He can chat to face with his neighbor, rest, or enjoy the audiovisual A monitor with an overall display measurement of 51 centimeters and a sound system create a atmosphere. More than else though, the monitor fascinatingly deep images its 3D technology.

The innovative operating conduces greatly to the clear, spatial impression: the displays of the and control system are visible at the farthest forward in the interior, optically, appear a bit further because at the bottom edge of the there is a mirror; the display is horizontally retracted into the This technology not only for a very clear and tidily instrument panel. Owing to the distance between the driver’s and the display as compared with a cockpit, the need for the eyes to their range for far and near is appreciably smaller. This eye fatigue and makes a scientifically contribution to greater stress-relieving

Dialogue with your assistant

The SERVO-HMI of the F 700 presents in an appreciably improved version by a special assistant. Operation of the system, the communication systems and the as well as the audio and entertainment is by means of the proven COMAND controller, to which a slide has been added. Preselections in the menu are made in three The air conditioning system is operated by an touch-sensitive control.

For more input operations, for innovative there is an individual input in the form of a virtual person, an avatar in computerese. Such are familiar from the internet or computer games as electronic representing real persons.

In the F 700 the takes the shape of a young She enters into verbal with the driver, asking for the destination in the navigation menu, for and confirming the voice input. It the same way when you select to call from the phonebook or a radio station.

This of dialogue simplifies voice for the driver and improves the system’s recognition performance. Moreover, the of possible dialogue assistance can be enlarged almost without For instance, the avatar as virtual could access online from the vehicle via internet add items to the driver’s appointments or read aloud important Operation by voice dialogue distraction — after driving safety is always the important concern at Mercedes-Benz.

Successful transfer from to production

Since the beginning of the Mercedes-Benz has introduced twelve cars. This series of and pioneering automobiles — Auto 2000 in 1981 to the F 700 — documents the resolution and with which the Mercedes-Benz delve into central of research and technology and develop solutions for the future.

Many in research cars that considered revolutionary years ago are in use in production cars today. include, for example, the DISTRONIC control. It was implemented for the first in 1991 in the F 100 and premiered in series in 1998 in the S-Class. The Active Control suspension system today in the CL-, S- and SL-Class is an of successful technology transfer research to production car, as are the and the active light function. The F 500 provided the inspiration for further development. It combined the V8 diesel of an S Class with an electric At the time this duo was the most torquiest hybrid drive for a drive passenger car. The F 700 continue down this and show the way to series production for innovations in drive and comfort
