Are You Too Old To Drive This Car?

Presenting the New Mercedes Benz SCL600

Pretty, isn’t it?


So?

What’s different about this car?


Not this….


????

Here is the real difference.
WHOA !

No Steering Wheel

No Pedals either

You drive this car with a joystick!

Do you think that you

can drive with a joystick?

Your kids and grandkids can.


The influence of video games in our lives has really arrived, wouldn’t you say?



The SCARY THOUGHT is:

NOW a 4-YEAR-OLD can STEAL your car

AND DRIVE IT BETTER THAN YOU CAN !

Edited to add:

GOTCHA! 😉

Snopes:

These images of a futuristic “new Mercedes-Benz SCL600” automobile – including technical innovations such as a joystick in place of a steering wheel, a video monitor in place of a rear-view mirror, and swiveling gull-wing doors – are difficult to classify as “true” or “false”. They are genuine photographs of a real car, but that car was constructed as a research vehicle, not as something to be made available for purchase by consumers, and isn’t really “new” … it was introduced over ten years ago. The above-displayed photos are pictures of DaimlerChrysler’s F 200 Imagination concept study, produced by the Mercedes-Benz design team and unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 1996 … DaimlerChrysler has continued experimenting along these lines with the three-wheeled F 300 Life-Jet, the F400 Carving two-seater, and the F500 Mind four-door sedan.

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. That is crazy. The day that is the only option for driving is the day I will be taking the bus! I am not good at video games with joy sticks!

  2. I'd have to have a hazardous driver sign on my car if I was driving. There's no way I could even stay in the lane. Is that for real????

  3. oh you have got to be kidding me! Is this true???

    I am so getting old, this is amazing! My grandkids could drive it better then me!

  4. Holy moley- I better hide the keys!

    Like someone said in another comment, "Is this for real?"

    Have a Happy VGNO!

  5. Omg, but I totally want that car. Is a steering wheel and option though 🙂

  6. Haha … oh, that's awesome! If they start making them in hot pink I totally want one!

    Hope you're having a lovely weekend, Stacy.

  7. i hope that's not real. if my track record at simpsons road race is any indication, i'd crash that car in less than 30 seconds!

  8. AGH! I was about to say I'm up the creek, then! LOL! Hmmm… just in case, maybe I should start playing more video games…

  9. I think that it would be quite cool, although I doubt I could handle it myself.

  10. WOW Not sure if it would be that hard to drive but who knows! LOL THanks for showing that.

  11. I was scared there for a minute because I totally stink at driving games like MarioKart. I really hope this never becomes a reality.

  12. I am still waiting for a car that will drive itself. Or…

    even better my own personal hovercraft like the Jetsons cartoon. Or, transport like on star trek
