Mercedes' safe concept

GERMANY //Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its latest S-Class ESF concept, which has been designed to showcase the German car maker's commitment to safety. Looking much like a regular S-Class on the outside, the ESF could well have been called the "air bag" as it features a host of safety features, including: curtain air bags between the two front seats, similar devices in the car's safety belts and an exterior air bag which will inflate under the car if the S-Class detects an imminent collision. The manufacturer also claims that this exterior air bag will lift the nose of the car in an impact which should counteract the nosediving a vehicle experiences under heavy braking.
