New Mercedes Benz SCL600- Fiction! & Truth!

Summary of the eRumor:  
A series of pictures of what is described as the newest Mercedes Benz, the SCL600.  It is a very modern car with "No steering wheel, you drive it with a joystick. No pedals either."
 
The Truth:  
This is not a new production model Mercedes Benz.  It was what was described as a "concept study" and was displayed at the Paris Motor Show in 1996 during the reign of DaimlerChrysler.

Someone took the pictures of the concept car, designated it as an "SCL600" and circulated the false eRumor.

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:


How would you like THIS parked in your driveway?


Of course for me, it would just be someone visiting!

The new Benz - Very different....really different!...SCROLL DOWN....






This is the new Mercedes Benz SCL600.





This car is really different.






That's not what is different about it.





That either.







.....and now for the 'really different' part:






Here is what is different.




No steering wheel, you drive it with a joystick. No pedals either.
Can you drive with a joystick? Your kids and grandkids probably can.
The influence of video games in our lives has really arrived, wouldn't ya say?

SCARY THOUGHT THAT NOW A 7 YEAR OLD COULD STEAL YOUR CAR AND PROBABLY DRIVE IT BETTER THAN YOU.
