The Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning, also known as the Mercedes-Benz Silver arrow, is an electric concept roadster car that was built for the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Description

The Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning was built for the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show Design Challenge, where it won the best animation award for their short film Silver Lightning. It was conceived by the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio in Carlsbad, California, the same studio behind the Mercedes-Benz Biome concept car.

The Silver Lightning was heavily inspired by the 1930s Silver Arrow race cars, most notably the Mercedes-Benz W125 driven by Rudolf Caracciola that won the 1937 Grand Prix, as well as the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR designed by Rudolf Uhlenhaut. The design theme also took influences from sci-fi movies like Star Trek, TRON: Legacy, and Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones.

The Silver Lightning's futuristic and sleek appearance also comes with innovative features, such as a roof constructed out of small, lightweight magnetic squares that uses Mag-Tech technology allowing them to either combine to form a hardtop or retract to form a roadster. The omni-directional wheels allow the car to steer freely in any direction and are enclosed in rings integrated within the car's main body.

In compliance with the competition's theme of designing "Hollywood’s Hottest New Movie Car", it was accompanied by a short film called Silver Lightning, which features two crash test dummies called Hans05 and Franz02 attempting and eventually succeeding in the rescue of their prized stolen Silver Lightning from Dr. Crash-Barrier, the main antagonist of the movie.

Summary

Silver Lightning stats (S)

The Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning is one of seven original Class S cars in the game, with a starting rank of 1542, a MAX rank of 1647, and a MAX+PRO rank of 1714. The Silver Lightning receives +26 from Tuning Kits.

The Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning has a Speed Modification of 91.46%. This is the most common Speed Modification in the game, shared by six other vehicles.

Performance

The Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning's acceleration and handling are below average. However, it has a better nitro efficiency rating than most of the other original Class S cars, at 7/13/17, and it drifts very well around corners, the latter being a common trait across the original Class S cars.

Usage

Due to it being a high-ranked electric vehicle, the Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning is useful for the later stages of Career Mode, in particular the Mercedes-only events and electric car-only events, where in most cases, the Silver Lightning is preferred over the nanoFlowcell QUANT FE, a Class S Elite Car that has a higher rank but is infamous for its terrible handling and drifting abilities, as well as its Class B cousin, the Mercedes-Benz Biome, which has a lower rank and costs A8Credits 125,000 more.

While it is possible for the Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning to perform decently with a Multiplayer build, the Lamborghini Estoque, a high-end Class B car, performs very similarly to the Silver Lightning, with better acceleration and a slightly worse nitro efficiency rating of 8/13/18. At MAX+PRO, the Estoque has an actual speed of 285.7 mph/460.0 km/h compared to the Silver Lightning's 285.9 mph/460.4 km/h. Due to the Estoque's better acceleration, it is more competitive than the Silver Lightning both in Events and Multiplayer.

The Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning counts towards the Ion Runners collection, which awards A8Credits 17,000 upon completion. Due to the Silver Lightning's high purchase price compared to other vehicles in this collection, it is usually the last car the player would purchase before completing this collection. Players should therefore avoid claiming the collection prize immediately after purchasing the Silver Lightning, as the prize would be obtained at loss.

The Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning was one of the Enduro Cars in the Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid's Enduro Double Down event, appearing only in the third part of the event onwards (when the player has banked at least A8EnduroPoints 21,000).

Price

The Silver Lightning costs A8Credits 300,000 to purchase and A8Credits 417,500 to max out. Pro Kits require A8Credits 403,940, 6 of each Class S Parts card, 12 Electric Engines, 8 Mid-Tech cards, and 8 Advanced Tech cards.
