When one of the founders of your company is responsible for building the first gasoline-powered car, that’s a fact you want to remind people of as much as possible.

This concept is a throwback to the Benz Motorwagen from the 1880s, featuring the iconic bicycle wheels and replacing the steering wheel with a joystick reminiscent of the lever that was used to steer the original.
