Recy, the Recyclable Wood Roadster from Mercedes-Benz

As the LA Auto Show starts to appear on the horizon, the first entry into the show’s Design Challenge comes from Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design of North America. The Challenge coaxes auto designers to create a car conscious of its environmental footprint. Mercedes’ “Recy” is a California roadster made from wood, allows, glass, and metal, and is 100% recyclable. Other Design Challenge entrants, yet to be unveiled, will come from Audi, Acura, Honda, Mini and yes, Hummer, so lots of eco eye candy yet to behold. Last year’s Auto Show brought us such concept vehicles as the GMC Pad. We’ll see what they dish out this year. The winner will be announced November 30th.
