Mercedes Biome, “pure fantasy” at the L.A. Show

Mercedes is going to steal all the attention of the journalists attending the Los Angeles Auto Show this week. The Stuttgart manufacturer will exhibit a revolutionary concept, called Biome, which stems from designer Hubert Lee’s creative spirit, the man responsible for the look of the new generation CLS and the futuristic vision of the F800 Style prototype presented last spring in Geneva.

Created in a studio in Carlsbad, California, Biome wants to be a spectacular supercar, capable of providing space for four people, measuring 4020 mm long and 2,500 mm wide. The interior layout of the seats is quite strange, with the driver in the center, framed from behind by two other passengers and on a central, but more distant position, by a third.

The total weight amounts to only 394 kg, an unusual small quantity for a concept of such class. According to the designer, the concept has been constructed from a biofiber raised in a natural environment.

Described by the creator as “pure fantasy”, the Biome concept is a creation without end, which can be admired live in the design competition held at the LA Show. In fact, this is also the reason why Biome was conceived, as the target of the designers was winning this competition, in which Mercedes will also be participating with Smart 454 Weight Watch Technology (created at the Sindelfingen studio in Germany) and Maybach eRikscha (designed at a studio in Yokohama, Japan).
