Racing boats are usually either powered by human energy or wind, but the Mercedes-Benz WIND Power looks to help make the latter form more capable than ever.

Instead of using wind to blow sails, the Mercedes-Benz WIND Power harnesses wind power in order to power the internal engines and allow the boat to glide across the water.

Looking like a supercar, the conceptual Mercedes-Benz WIND Power is the design work of Slavomir Ozanik and shows what's possible without having to rely on fossil fuel for energy. The concept is aerodynamically designed and sits low on the water to help make gaining speed more streamlined of an experience. It helps to set new standard for what's possible when it comes to the design of racing boats.
