Mercedes has taken the wraps off their latest concept car at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Mercedes Concept IAA.
The IAA in the Mercedes Concept IAA name stands for Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile and Mercedes says it is two cars in one, a four door coupe and an aerodynamics world champion.
The car is capable of transforming its design whilst its is being driven, we will let Mercedes explain what happens with the car.
At the touch of a button, or automatically on reaching a speed of 80 km/h, the Mercedes-Benz “Concept IAA” (Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile) performs a fascinating transformation in which the captivatingly beautiful four-door coupé turns into an aerodynamics world champion: eight segments extend at the rear, increasing its length by up to 390 millimetres; front flaps in the front bumper extend by 25 mm to the front and 20 mm to the rear, improving the air flow around the front end and the front wheel arches; the Active Rims alter their cupping from 55 mm to zero; and the louvre in the front bumper moves 60 mm to the rear, improving the underbody air flow.
