The initial Mercedes Benz SF1 Concept was presented to the online community in late 2011. The designer, Steel Drake, hadn’t expected the enthusiastic feedback which followed the presentation. Earlier this year he decided to complete the design on the concept vehicle.

The result is a very edgy version of the familiar Mercedes Benz sports cars. A low slung chassis on a model with angular lines which brings to mind the Japanese transformer games of the 90s. The MB logo has been modified to create an updated identity of this futuristic rear engined model, with square lights and dual exhaust pipes.

The concept may create cause for concern for the Mercedes Benz purists, but the rebranded vehicle is most likely to be received with applause from the young generation of sports car enthusiasts as well as the lovers of innovative design.
