Fantastic Mercedes Hybrid F-Cell Roadster

A group of Daimler AG trainees at the Sindelfingen Mercedes-Benz plant have built a fantastic Roadster which uses fuel cell drive.

Dubbed the F-CELL, it boasts design features from various different eras and is powered by a 1.2 kW hybrid drive which propels the vehicle to a top speed of 15 mph.

What’s particularly striking is the blend of classic styling with modern technology, principally the fibreglass front section which is drawn from Formula One racing, and the joystick that takes the place of the conventional steering wheel.

“This project impressively demonstrates that the topic of sustainable mobility has become an integral part of our vocational training,” said Human Resources Board member and Labor Relations Manager Günther Fleig. “I am delighted to see how much initiative and creativity the young people have put into this project.”

It is a breathtaking piece of engineering.
