This is why employees-in-training aren't allowed to design cars: They end up looking like a bicycle crossed with a pitchfork. New employees at Mercedes-Benz were tasked with creating a totally new vehicle, at least so everyone could get a good laugh. They designed the F-CELL Roadster.


It took over 150 employees-in-training a year to come up with what can best be described as a FAIL magnet. It's got a fuel-cell system and can hit speeds of 15 mph and is controlled by -- wait for it -- a joystick.

This is a great nod to innovative employee training, in that the young automotive engineers can get the wackiness out of their systems before spending the next 40 years designing the exact same car over and over again. See an entire gallery of this ridiculous Roadster at Autoblog.
