Sailing 2.0

Imagine a world without fossil fuels. You can’t completely rely on solar power, now can you? Designer Slavomir Ozanik feels that Wind Power is the way to go.

The Mercedez Benz WIND Power is a concept hydrocraft that works towards harnessing wind as a source of energy to propel forward.

Aerodynamics is of paramount importance here, hence the Merc’s largely organic form. The lower hydro wings stay submerged underwater while the upper wind wings harness wind energy and guide the hydrocraft.

The unique thing about the concept vehicle is that for a water based automobile, it has an uncanny supercar-ish appearance. Slavomir attributes that to aerodynamics along with the will to capture the adrenaline of car-racing and project that into a new category.
