The Mercedes-Benz Silbervogel was designed by Jakob Hirzel for the Xtreme Gravity Series in Irvine, California.
The automobile is a gravity racing car that has no engine. Its bionic shape and load-bearing carbon structure were designed to meet the challenges posed by the physical forces at play during a race and hence its lightness and rigidity.
Implications - In a culture becoming dominated by eco-friendly designs, the race car industry is not immune. Finding ways to make racing a possible eco-friendly sport has given rise to new engine-less vehicles that cater to the earth-loving speedster. High-speed enthusiasts with a social conscience will be thrilled.
