On January 29, 1886, Karl Benz received an official patent for his "automobile fueled by gas." Now, 125 years later, Mercedes is celebrating that event with the unveiling of the F125 - a concept car that previews the next generation S-Class and CL-Class.

The F125 concept is powered by four electric motors that take their power from a hydrogen fuel cell stack. The four electric motors deliver a total output of 231 HP and will sprint the concept from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 136 mph - quite impressive performance numbers for a car in this class.

Even more impressive is the fact that the concept has an autonomy of 620 miles. It also comes equipped with a chargeable lithium-ion battery that will help the F125 to run only on electricity for a total length of 31 miles.

UPDATE 10/24/11: Mercedes has released the first presentation video of the F125 Concept detailing how the car’s concept form came into fruition, as well as how the car’s characteristics will help in determining the automaker’s future auto line-up. It’s a good watch that’s definitely worth your time!

I love the concept of F125 combining the S-Class and CL-Class Mercedes cars. It is impressive that the car is equipped with a chargeable lithium-ion battery making it run only on electricity for 31 miles.

It seems too futuristic on its platform and with its other details, and I would admit that it is so admiring with that. I’m also interested on its technology but too bad to know that it is an electric vehicle.

Mercedes F125 Concept looks luxuriant with its color. The glass really fits with its size. And the doors when opened, the car can form a beetle shaped that made the car more unique and noticeable.

Mercedes has a ideal concept of this high-end opened door, they have good focus on their system engine while composing a very unique and impressive car model. Fully detailed and very conceptualize for each of their cars.

I’m not impressed with the design and appearance of this F125 concept, well surely it is really a unique one, but I don’t know, I guess I’m not really fond with its futuristic design.

I feel like I’m seeing Lady Gaga riding this shiny silver F125 car. Very stylish, glossy and eccentric compartment and modernized interiors.
