Mercedes has unveiled the retro-inspired Silver Arrow Concept at Pebble Beach, and it’s an absolute stunner. The aerodynamic design is a homage to the record-breaking Mercedes W125 Grand Prix racer driven by Rudolf Caracciola, who achieved a flying mile average speed of 268.7 mph on the A5 autobahn between Frankfurt and Darmstadt in 1937 – a public road record that wasn’t beaten until November 2017.

 

 

The sleek shape evokes the W125’s aerodynamic design and continues the automaker’s “Sensual Purity” design philosophy. With seating for one, the EQ Silver Arrow Concept measures 17.3 feet long, while the body is made entirely of carbon fiber. It’s also finished in Alubeam Silver as a nod to the historic Silver Arrows race cars, which didn’t have a white paint layer to keep the weight down. A continuous lighting strip at the front connects the slender headlights, and the side skirts also feature a lighting strip running along the bottom of the car. EQ lettering in front of the rear wheels is illuminated in blue to represent Mercedes’s EQ electric sub-brand.

 

 

Partially covered slick 255/25 R 24 tires at the front and 305/25 R 26 tires at the rear offer exceptional grip and acceleration. There’s also an active rear spoiler that extends when necessary like the Project One. Unsurprisingly, the EQ Silver Arrow is fully electric. Paired with an 80 kWh battery, the electric motors deliver a combined output of 750 hp and a range of up to 248 miles.
