Are You Too Old To Drive This Car?


Presenting the New Mercedes Benz SCL600

Pretty, isn't it?


So?

What's different about this car?


Not this....


????

Here is the real difference.
WHOA !

No Steering Wheel

No Pedals either

You drive this car with a joystick!

Do you think that you

can drive with a joystick?

Your kids and grandkids can.


The influence of video games in our lives has really arrived, wouldn't you say?



The SCARY THOUGHT is:

NOW a 4-YEAR-OLD can STEAL your car

AND DRIVE IT BETTER THAN YOU CAN !



Edited to add:


GOTCHA! ;)

Snopes:

These images of a futuristic “new Mercedes-Benz SCL600” automobile – including technical innovations such as a joystick in place of a steering wheel, a video monitor in place of a rear-view mirror, and swiveling gull-wing doors – are difficult to classify as “true” or “false”. They are genuine photographs of a real car, but that car was constructed as a research vehicle, not as something to be made available for purchase by consumers, and isn’t really “new” … it was introduced over ten years ago. The above-displayed photos are pictures of DaimlerChrysler’s F 200 Imagination concept study, produced by the Mercedes-Benz design team and unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 1996 … DaimlerChrysler has continued experimenting along these lines with the three-wheeled F 300 Life-Jet, the F400 Carving two-seater, and the F500 Mind four-door sedan.

That is crazy. The day that is the only option for driving is the day I will be taking the bus! I am not good at video games with joy sticks!

I'd have to have a hazardous driver sign on my car if I was driving. There's no way I could even stay in the lane. Is that for real????
