        Dr Z seems to say "this is one week before the Frankfurt Auto Show", so I assume this video was recorded last week some time, maybe as a preview to certain MB employees.

                I enjoy seeing executives from other companies stopping by rivals' booths.

                  ^ Indeed.
                  Nice to see camaraderie among the automotive design leaders. Nothing more, nothing less.

                  Ex VW CEO Winterkorn used to show up to other stands with a measuring time to measure gaps of peculiar areas.

                    Nothing wrong with admiring some product wich deserves to be admired all the way. Real gentleman do so, even if it's about their main/biggest rival. ;)

                      warmed up to it's design but i would still say the ston looks better because of its uncompromising design philosophy

                      i do think the front reminds me of the 918 and the drivetrain is of the same type (ICE+multiple electric engines) so in a way this can be looked on as a 918++

                      Does anyone have any info on external dimensions and downforce?

                      Not really. You missed the F1 engine part. This is beyond a 918.

                        Remember were the Porsche 918 engine got developed from

                        The AMG is the first direct-to-roadcar motorsport engine, other than that they're pretty simular in terms of drivetrain

                        If you're really going to go there, the electric motor setup is actually more Acura NSX-style rather than 918.

                          Similar in concept yes, but it's no 918++ as you previously stated. There is a real difference.

                          They were there to ask.if there are some openings in Stuttgart.

                          Everyone would like to get a chance to design a something like that.

                            Agreed. They're all colleagues at the end of the day and could likely work with each other sometime down the line.

                            It would be so interesting to hear them chatting to each other about their brands current styling direction.

                              I think so too! There's got to be some light hearted joking around mixed in there too.

                              Haha certainly. Hearing Adrian and Gordon taking light jabs at Marc Lichte for the insipidly boring A8 would be a treat. :p
