Large Mercedes Benz Design Model


This was a highly finished studio presentation model that was sponsored by Mercedes Benz. The size is impressive at about 42 inches. What is most impressive is the high quality pearl white paint finish. It a striking display. I believe this was a future concept for spacious family vehicle. I was told that Mercedes did many design studies in their own studio but also sponsored design competitions. This model looks very sophisticated and has high level of finish. A project like this is very costly to take on and produce. I'm guessing it was finished by an outside industrial design studio not a student. Also models produced by auto company studios rarely end up in public hands.
