The unveiling of the Vision EQ Silver Arrow concept electric vehicle by Mercedes-Benz underscores an evident peek at the future products to be launched by the automaker under its new ‘EQ’ electric-vehicle branding.
According to the details revealed by Mercedes-Benz, the Vision EQ Silver Arrow all-electric race car prototype draws inspiration from the automaker’s record-breaking W 125 car from the year 1937. The framework of the prototype is made of carbon fibre, with several layers of “alubeam silver” paint to give it the appearance of liquid metal over the top.

Describing the Vision EQ Silver Arrow show car as an electric vehicle which highlights the “design idiom” of Mercedes-Benz’s new EQ product and technology brand, Gorden Wagener -- Daimler AG’s Chief Design Officer -- said at the unveiling event that the vehicle “embodies progressive luxury” and is “intended for acceleration and driving pleasure.”
