Mercedes-Benz F700

Unveiled at the International Motor in Frankfurt last fall, the F700 Research Car was a shining of what lay ahead in the coming for the Mercedes brand. Featuring a of technological advancements, the remarkably DiesOtto powerplant and a radically design, it was meant to act more-or-less as a on wheels, allowing designers and to test the many elements will eventually make way into the vehicles you and I drive.

Of reading a feature list is one but one must wonder: How functional are the technologies utilized on the F700 (or any research vehicle for that To help provide some into that very Mercedes took the liberty of a select number of journalists access to the F700, the result of is yet another installment of our now-famous Review Roundup.

To see what journalists thought of the F700 Research Car, you can excerpts from the two reviews the concept as well as links to the full articles immediately

The F700 is an that has been to the gym. leaner, meaner and more with muscles appearing every wheel arch. But concept’s beauty is in its brains, not bulges. It is nicknamed the Flying because of a gadget they Pre-Scan Suspension. That lasers housed in the headlamps the road up to ten metres ahead so the can prepare even earlier for humps or potholes to keep a smooth drive. There are lasers in the wing mirrors to for obstacles when opening the

Inside, the F700 is like a pad. There’s a unique which reverses in five so that the front passenger can backwards towards the 51cm 3D screen with cinema sound. There’s even Mercedes have called a bar console in the back, and legroom is so even Peter Crouch stretch out.

For the driver is a control system called Machine Interface. The driving are on a mirrored screen perfectly in your driving eye line to eye movement from the road to the and therefore lessen tiredness on journeys. But my favourite innovation is KITT from Knight has gone from being a Englishman to a stunning blonde called Gloria! Computer-generated appears on a screen, greets you and away as you ask her for satnav directions, to a contact on your phone or to the radio station. Now that’s I call progress.

As it turns out, the luxury car of the doesn’t look much the spindly, teardrop-shaped, hydrogen-fuel-cell-powered envisioned a decade or so ago. If world-exclusive drive of the Mercedes-Benz research vehicle is an indication, the car of 2020 and beyond will be similar to those on Mercedes lots now.

Sure, it look different, with proportions and an aerodynamic shape. But to Mercedes, this future will run a gasoline engine and an gearbox and offer the same performance and comfort as the current

When you’re behind the wheel, it is apparent that in of its futuristic theme, the F700’s controls bear a strong to those in today’s S-Class. The big interior layout and overall are close to production reality.

The gasoline-electric-hybrid drivetrain holds the clue to Mercedes’ future car. A front-mounted, twin-turbocharged, four-cylinder gasoline engine in combination with a transmission-mounted motor. The experimental engine elements of both gasoline and units, with differing and variable compression depending on conditions. The idea is to combine the smoothness and low emissions of a gasoline with the torque, flexibility and of a diesel. Mercedes calls it in honor of inventors Rudolf and Nikolaus Otto.

The F700 comes to life the same electronic key as today’s running first in spark-ignition with a lean air-fuel injected directly into the Once temperatures rise and the is under light loads, it switches to variable-compression ignition, and the plugs deactivate.

The new engine production-ready refinement; it now feels a bit an out-of-tune supercharged 1.8-liter Still, it delivers power in a linear manner sufficient to that the F700 won’t be behind at a traffic light.
