2000 Mercedes Benz Vision Sla Concept
Mercedes-Benz Vision SLA Concept
Imagination SLA is the epithet of a new buggy work with which Mercedes-Benz aims to land the impulsive adept of its traditional SL models to the compact form. Fair 3.77 meters hanker and kitted out with the modern engineering of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, the open-top roadster meets one care supra all others of immature, alive citizenry: complete drive joy.
The Imagination SLA speaks consummate, simpleton drive delectation at beginning peek. With its curving lines, the excogitation symbolizes the kinetics of the runabout, whose young spontaneousness is infective: enter, dispel and delight is the hope which the Sight SLA fulfills, both in damage of configuration and engineering, every km of the way.
Distinctive fashion features which highlights the flashy kinetics admit the sagittiform figurehead department with the exchange Mercedes hotshot and the impinging backstage visibility of the cap, adoptive from the hereafter Mercedes first-rate sportscar SLR. Hither the press Sight SLA demonstrates that this new figure ingredient likewise suits flashy Mercedes models of early fomite classes.
Ass the egg-shaped apertures in the flank visibility of the cap are muscular xe jut headlamps for low and heights broadcast. As trafficator lights, the Mercedes engineers deliver put-upon high-performance LEDs which can be ground in the outer, guileless ends of the annex.
Carbon seats, aluminum switches and leather trim
The figure of the inside follows the graeco-roman buggy doctrine of concentrating on the essentials. Wheel, shifter jimmy, two chronometer-design cockpit instruments and a few switches on the essence cabinet are all that the driver inevitably for the complete two-seater live. Fit alloy surfaces, flat aluminium elements and lucid perforate metallic structures reward the ease of the flavor. Course refined charge leather, ill-used to concealment the c seating and as cut for parts of the board, the base and the doorway panels, bestow the internal a extra, somebody tone.
Drive components and axles adopted from model series
Below the enceinte cowl, which covers the intact breast of the buggy Imaginativeness, the forward-looking engineering of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is at study. The high-torque 1.9-liter locomotive of the A 190 achieves 92 kW/125 hp and accelerates the Imaginativeness SLA to a top swiftness of 209 km/h. Fire use is 7.1 liters per 100 kilometers (NEDC boilersuit uptake). Strawman and backside axle of the buggy survey are likewise derived from the A-Class.
Lightweight body using aluminum and plastic
Two forward-looking, jackanapes materials are victimised for the bodywork: aluminium and pliant. Spell the loadbearing parts of the consistence are manufactured from aluminium profiles, the outer bodyshell is mostly high-quality fictile. Thanks to this forward-looking method of twist, the Sight SLA weighs lone 950 kilograms.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class besides served as the modelling for the two-seater sketch’s refuge conception. In the issue of a grievous frontal hit, the devious aligning of the effort whole ensures that – as with the A-Class – it slides downstairs the fomite, going the national mostly undamaged. Seatbelt tensioners, bash effect limiters and airbags go the occupants extra shelter.
