The Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR is the most futuristic concept I've ever seen
Mercedes-Benz has once again released a jaw dropping "Vision" concept car. The last concept, the Vision Simplex, was a retro-modern take on their first successful production model, the open-top Simplex that was produced in the early 1900s. While the Vision Simplex was a great view of what old tech would look like today, this concept is a massive leap into what the future might hold. This is the Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR.
AVTR stands for Advanced Vehicle Transformation, and this vehicle certainly does that. The most prominent feature of the car is the active and independent scales on the back. They move with the car in ways that help with maneuvering; like coming up to help you brake, going down when you accelerate, and moving to the side as you turn.
A car that looks this good from the outside has to look just as good on the inside and it does. This cockpit oozes future and simplicity. It doesn't even look like it belongs on Earth, yet here it is. The seating material is devoid of animal products and the door sills are made from a giant root that was sustainably sourced from deep within the forest.
Place your hand on the center console and it scans to determine who you are. If you have proper clearance to operate the vehicle, it raises to a more comfortable height. Once raised, you control the vehicle like a joystick. There are no conventional controls in this car and all movements are controlled via the center console.
There are a few more features and intricacies of the vehicle that are better explained with video. Thankfully Supercar Blondie was given exclusive access to the car and created a wonderful video showcasing the Vision AVTR.
Overall this car is a gorgeous look into the future. Its styling is bold, its features are unique, and it all comes together to create a masterpiece. After seeing this and the Vision Simplex, I hope Mercedes-Benz' design house continues to envision these gorgeous concepts that help spark your imagination.
