Invisible Mercedes cruises the streets of Germany

Invisible Mercedes cruises the streets of Germany


Invisible Mercedes cruises the streets of Germany, Invisible car cruises Germany, Luxury car manufacturers usually want their vehicles to be seen. Not Mercedes-Benz, which has concealed its new F-Cell vehicle in the most creative use of the invisibility cloak since Frodo hid from Sauron. Mercedes covered one side of its hydrogen-powered minivan with LED panels, then attached a DSLR to shoot video on the other side, creating the illusion that the zero-emissions car ("invisible" to the environment) is also physically invisible as it barrels around Bavaria.


Some YouTube viewers are wary of the manufacturer's approach (one commenter warns, "Invisible car = anticipated car crash"), but general reaction includes appreciation for both the manufacturer's marketing innovation and socially conscious product. Plus, as one fan points out, "I can park anywhere I want now!"
