Mercedes Biome Concept Headed to Production to Rival BMW EfficientDynamics Concept


It's generally thought that wild concept cars never make it to production. The truth is, most of the time the process just takes so long and there are so many changes involved that consumers don't even recognize what a street car has in common with its concept from five years earlier.

That may, or may not, be the case when Mercedes sends its ultra-futuristic Biome concept into series production.

Set for some time around 2015, the car was originally crafted for the LA Auto Show's annual Design Challenge, but Mercedes fulled the car at the last minute, choosing instead to enter just its Smart and Maybach branded concepts. According to a report by AutoCar, the vehicle's designers were careful not to take it to the extreme, ensuring it could be, "do-able" without major changes.

If in fact the car does see production, it won't sport the drivetrain from the concept, but is likely to be a flagship for performance and fuel economy, incorporating the company's latest green technologies.

One interesting feature it may also keep is the central driving position, with a passenger seat at each side – much like the famed McLaren F1.
