Even Mercedes Is into Steampunk

Mercedes has lost its mind. And I think I likey.According to a press release, the F-CELL Roadster (shown beside the 1886 Benz Patent Motor Car) is "fitted with a 1.2 kW hybrid drive-one that allows the F-CELL to reach a top speed of 15 mph and achieve an operating range of  217 miles." It also "draws its inspiration from a diverse variety of automotive eras." Clearly.It looks sharper than a golf cart-that much is certain-and it seems like a bizarrely awesome way to get around town...if you're an eccentric billionaire who's mad into hi-tech anachronism. Check out some of the pics below and let us know if you'd give one a spin. No word yet on price.
Via Inhabitat. More pics here. Thanks, Brent.
