Mercedes-Benz Vision EQ Silver Arrow Concept Car

Looking to the past can inspire the future, as it did with the sleek silver beauty Mercedes-Benz unveiled at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The legendary luxury carmaker was influenced by their 1937 W 125 Grand Prix racer driven by Rudolf Caracciola, which flew at 268.7mph — a public road record that wasn’t broken until 2017. The aerodynamic electric Silver Arrow is made from carbon fiber and coated with alubeam silver. Its slender, seamless design is accented with lighting strips on the side skirts, leading to a pair of extendible spoilers that can act as air brakes. The vehicle sits on lightweight aluminum wheels with 168 spokes, each painted in rose gold. Step into the cockpit and find a saddle brown leather seat, brushed aluminum, walnut detailing, and a huge panoramic screen. Underneath the hood, the electric motors deliver 750 horsepower with a range of up to 248 miles. It even has artificial intelligence that can set you up to enter a virtual race against past or present silver arrow racing cars. To top it off, it has a touchscreen on the steering wheel that you can use to choose different driving modes or configure sound settings, like making the car roar as if it were a Formula 1 Silver Arrow.

All-Electric Sport Car Nissan BladeGlider

Nissan is bringing a working version of the BladeGlider all-electric sport concept it first revealed in 2013 to Rio to ride the hype wave of the Olympics. It’s futuristic Nissan BladeGlider vehicle, combining zero-emissions with high-performance in a revolutionary sports car design. The debut of the Nissan Bladeglider prototypes forms part of Nissan’s on-going commitment to the development of zero-emission vehicles and new automotive technologies including autonomous drive systems and connectivity. Nissan already sells the world’s highest-volume zero-emission car, the LEAF, and is pioneering Intelligent Mobility systems that will be deployed in a range of vehicles over coming years. The demonstration models feature an advanced chassis configuration with a narrow front track and wider rear track for optimum aerodynamic efficiency and handling stability. High-waisted, rear-hinged dihedral doors provide a dramatic entry and exit to the cabin. The open roof of Nissan BladeGlider is reinforced with an integrated roll-over protection structure, providing the exhilaration of an open-topped race car with the safety of a coupe.

Wheel-mounted controls for Nissan BladeGlider’s systems feed into an advanced display showing speed, state of battery charge, regeneration mode and torque map. Flanking the central display are two screens, with the images of rear-view cameras mounted just behind the front wheels. An alternative to door-mounted mirrors, this dual screen design improves the aerodynamic efficiency of Nissan BladeGlider. The driver sits in arrowhead formation slightly in front of two passengers, who enjoy extended legroom. The view for all occupants is panoramic thanks to the seamless cockpit windscreen. Power is 100 percent electric, with exceptional powertrain performance delivered by Nissan’s technical partner for the Nissan BladeGlider project, UK-based Williams Advanced Engineering. Maximum speed of the demonstration models is in excess of 190km/h*, with 0-100km/h taking less than five seconds*. The rear wheels’ drive is provided by two 130kW electric motors – one for each wheel. The interior of the Nissan BladeGlider reflects the vehicles’ sporting intentions, with four point safety harnesses for each occupant. The seats offer exceptional support to sides and legs of the driver and passengers. The seats are trimmed in a highly tactile blend of fabric and epoxy resin coating, resulting in a tough and grippy material that has the effect of comfortably securing occupants in place. Two Nissan BladeGliders will be presented in Rio de Janeiro in August. One will be on static display in Rio while the second will be offering dynamic rides to media and VIPs.
