The Mercedes-Benz concept car, based on a boxfish, made its world premiere at this year’s DaimlerChrysler Innovation Symposium in Washington.
Using the form of the boxfish, engineers were able to considerably reduce drag.
Mercedes says: “In addition to the streamline aerodynamics and a lightweight construction, a 140bhp diesel engine and SCR technology (Selective Catalytic Reduction) contribute to fuel economy of 65.7mpg.”
