The Mercedes-Benz F-Cell Roadster was created by a team of over 150 trainees and dual education system students at the Sindelfingen Mercedes-Benz plant in south-west Germany.

The development of the Mercedes-Benz F-Cell Roadster concept involved junior employees from the fields of automotive mechatronics, model-building, electronics, coating technology, manufacturing mechanics, product design, and interior appointments. The main aim of the project was to develop alternative drive systems by using hands-on training.

The exterior styling of the F-Cell Roadster concept is influenced by a wide variety of vehicles from different eras. The large spoked wheels are designed to mimic the wheels found on the Benz Patent Motor Car from 1886, while the sleek nosecone is inspired by modern day Formula 1 cars.

The interior also has features which come from entirely opposite ends of the automotive spectrum. Carbon-fibre bucket seats are covered in hand stitched leather and suspended over a wooden-slat floor. Control of the F-Cell Roadster is not through a conventional steering wheel and pedals, instead a joystick mounted in between the seats provides all the vital control functions like steering, acceleration and braking.

Powering the Mercedes-Benz F-Cell Roadster is an emission-free fuel cell system located at the rear. This unit puts out 1.6 hp (1.2 kW) and gives the vehicle a rather sedate 16 mph (25 km/h) top speed. However at 217 mph (350 km/h) the range is rather impressive.
