Mercedes Benz SCL600 – No Steering, No Pedals

This is the new Mercedes Benz SCL600.

This car is really different.
No steering wheel, you drive it with a joystick. No pedals either.
Can you drive with a joystick? Your kids probably can.
The influence of Video game in our lives has really arrived?

    I think this car is a fantastic new idea that could possibly revolutionize the driving experience for every human on Earth. Also a revised drivers test would be required for people who bought these new cars and offering a new test would not be cost effective. And also James, did you ever get a chance to test drive this car? At first glance I didn’t see the other control on the driver’s side door. I think that would be hard to drive if you only had one arm. But all in all I like the car. Exept the rims. haha

    Brett is correct. This car is hardly “new”. The photographs of the Mercedes-Benz SCL600 were actually taken over 10 years ago at the Paris Motor Show in 1996. It was actually a concept car of Daimler-Chrysler’s F200, produced by the Mercedes-Benz design team. The car never made it into production (obviously), but some of the elements have been tested in other models by Daimler-Chrysler.

    More information about this car’s origin can be found on Snopes:

    Great concept but needs work. Joystick is a cool idea, but driving one-handed isn’t. The joystick needs to be mobile, ie you can pull it out and shunt it to either side.

    “i think they are the controls/buttons are the same on both sides to account for if the driver is left or right handed.. not necessarily so either passenger or driver could drive it”

    MATE whoever is driving BECOMES the driver and is no longer the passenger…

    I like to think of my self as an avid gamer, and i would never ever drive a car that has a joy stick.

    I like my steering wheel and gas pedal.

  • arsh

  • magnu

  • jsanch1

    Whoah! they screwed it though, they should’ve made it more streamlined, not have all the controls just ready to distract the driver
