eave the horse in the stable because this modern concept carriage doesn’t need it. The Mercedes Roadster simply astounds me. Not only is it gorgeous in every seen and unseen crevice, it’s powered with a 1.2kW hybrid drive visible through its rear translucent shell. It doesn’t take a genius to deduct that the carriage-like wheels don’t quite haul ass, but that’s not really the point of this vehicle. At a steady 15 mph, it’s capable of operating to a range of 217 miles, and results in a sustainably slow and sexy ride.

You can peep more photos and specs on the Mercedes site.

      Yeah, me too. Nothing like a “sustainably slow and sexy ride.”

    I would be quite satisfied with 12mph.

    15mph in base 7 would also be acceptable.
