We haven’t featured a concept car for a while as to be fair none have really had the WOW factor. However it seems the new Mercedes Biome Concept Car might be the new kid on the block. First things first, this is truely a concept, never expect anything here to appear on a future (not in our lifetime anyway) and the technology is more suited to Avatar than real life.
The main amazing fact about this Mercedes Concept is that the chassis, body and fuel tank are made from BioFibre. What is BioFibre I hear you ask? Well it is a natural material which is genetically manipulated which ‘grows’ from a seed into the body and shape of the car with 24 hours. Yes it all sounds a touch strange but who knows, if true, then the local village biggest marrow competition is going to reach new heights in the future!
The material is lighter than metal yet stronger than steel according to Mercedes. A free tip to Mercedes though, where do the wheels touch the ground? That little trolley jack just won’t cut it… Check out the pictures and let us know what you think.
