Video: Shaving in a moving Mercedes-Benz F700 concept

The Mercedes-Benz F 700 Concept is one of the most intriguing concepts of 2007 and is probably the most innovative study by the Stuttgart automaker. Powered by its DIESOTTO engine technology mated with a hybrid module and other technologies such as direct-injection and turbocharging, the F 700 produces 258-hp. The Mercedes-Benz F700 is capable of a combined fuel-economy of 44mpg while emitting only 127 grams of CO2 per kilometer.

Wonderful; now that we got the numbers out of the way, let’s get to the fun part of this post. Testing its PRE-SCAN chassis which is capable of recognizing uneven surfaces on the road, Mercedes-Benz brought in Bashar Booz, a barber who still practices the traditional ways of shaving with a straight razor.

Check out this video as Bashar attempts to prove his steady hands and the F700’s smooth and amazing road hugging platform. Of course he finishes successfully otherwise Mercedes-Benz would’ve never released this video.
