Vehicle design is shifting towards more powerful means of propulsion, which is evident with the 2040 Mercedes-Benz W196R Streamliner jet engine vehicle. Building on the design aesthetic and style of the original W196R, the 2040 Mercedes-Benz W196R Streamliner takes a direct influence from aeronautics design to boot.
The conceptual 2040 Mercedes-Benz W196R Streamliner is the design work of Minwoong Im and features an ultra-low design that aims to make it as aerodynamic as possible. The ejt engine vehicle features an enclosed cabin that's focused on being as tight and compact as possible in order to not inhibit performance when out on the track. It recalls the design of the original vehicle from the 1950s yet blasts forward into a new category of modern vehicular design.
