Mercedes has revealed its 1901 historic car in a refreshed look named Vision Mercedes Simplex. Take a look at this unique car!

German automaker, Mercedes, has gone back 118 years to reveal its historic car, now in a refreshed look.

Dubbed the Vision Mercedes Simplex, the concept car pays homage to the first car to go by the name “Mercedes”. Back then, cars were known to feature just engines and carriages.

As gathered by Naijauto, Mercedes is using the concept car to tell the world that its brand is all about luxury and innovation. The car was created at the new design studio Mercedes opened in Nice, France.
