As always Mercedes S-Class is the ultimate showcase of new technologies and gadgets and luxury. But this time Mercedes has picked on safety, so you know the result is something that you look forward to have a crash in it! This is the Mercedes S400 Hybrid ESF concept which will be presented between 23 June 2009 and 16th of August in an exhibition in the company’s Museum’s Fascination of Technology section.
Of course this is an Experimental Safety Vehicle,hence the name, ( They have also built one back in 1974) but the features they use in this car will eventually make their way to the production models. The ESF is packed with airbags! In fact you get the airbags first and then this S-Class to carry them around! It even has one underneath the car! how could they think of that. Other stuffs worth mentioning are inflatable metal beams in each door to absorb the force of side impacts and a function that moves the occupants away from the doors and toward the middle of the car ( possibly into each other’s arms! ), very clever!
The only problem we see here is that if, God forbid, you have a crash in this you will survive of course, but the cost of replacing all of those airbags can probably cause you heart attack!
