This fascinating futuristic Mercedes Blitzen Benz concept art was inspired by the original 1909 Blitzen Benz and the frozen themed art of Alex Erlandson. Erlandson's art was created by making "sculputres" out of trees that were grown into odd shapes. As far as concept cars go, one might consider this one to be a futuristic frozen art form.

Pasadena Art Center College of Design student George Yoo, created these fantastic icy concept designs while working at the Mercedes-Benz research and development center in Carlsbad, California.

Implications - Before creating the concept cars, George Yoo asked himself, "what if automotive parts were to be grown and tamed to hold certain shapes?" Out of this question, the wildly futuristic Mercedes concept was born.
