Mercedes wowed Detroit with its Ocean Drive convertible sedan concept and if you've ever wondered what it takes to get a work of art like that car built, Mercedes put together a minute and a half video that takes the viewer from design sketch to rolling concept.

There are shots of the car's chrome grille being handmade, the LEDs being placed into the headlights, the seats being stitched and even footage of the mule running on the track. The video isn't detailed enough that you could build your own high-dollar concept car (for example, it doesn't cover the drug running and money laundering knowledge needed to fund the job), but it's a fun behind-the-scenes glance.

      Did they show them cribbing off of the 300 convertible design, or did they leave that part out?

      Clay modeling is is similar to how I will print mockups of forms I'm creating in Excel. It's difficult to tell how effective the design until you get your hands on it. No matter how great technology is, it still has its limitations.
