Omni Auto reports that Mercedes-Benz will debut the F 125! gullwing coupe concept seen here at this week's Frankfurt Motor Show.

According to Omni Auto, the F 125! concept showcases M-B's design direction for the 2025 CL-Class. It's unknown if the German automaker intends to make a production CL that's fueled by hydrogen, but if the German automaker does, then Omni Auto says its likely that the setup featured in the F 125! that will be used. In this case, that means four electric motors cranking out a combined 231 horsepower. That level of grunt allows the F 125! to hit a top speed of 137 miles and zip from 0 to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds. According to Omni Auto's leaked information, Benz says the F 125! consumes 0.79 kilograms of hydrogen per 100 kilometers and that the stylish coupe can travel up to 621 miles on a full tank.

As you can probably tell, the F 125! draws styling cues from the automaker's F800 Style concept, a four-door sedan that debuted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. However, the prototype F 125! features a chassis made from a mix of carbon fiber, aluminum and plastics along with a unique carbon fiber tank to hold hydrogen at 700 bar. The gullwing's 10-kWh lithium-ion battery pack allows the 125 F! to travel approximately 31 miles before activation of the on-board fuel cell is required.

Look for us to post live shots and more details on the Mercedes-Benz F 125! concept when it debuts in Frankfurt, but for the moment, be sure to check out the image gallery to see the concept's trick slide-out trunk and stylized design.

      The grille makes it look dated. I was instantly reminded of the Dodge Venom concept, even though they really don't look all that alike. It's more of the vibe, I guess. It just feels like this could have appeared at any major auto show in the last ten or fifteen years.

      Ha! I guess those gold accents are a nod to the buyers in Dubai.

      MB, you have lost your design charm. Nothing in your lineup stands out anymore....except for the SLS.

      God, that thing is hideous. What happened to clean design? Clearly Mercedes has never heard of it.

        No your right to say it since I thought the same. Also the headlights look a bit like a small version of the Venza headlights.

      So it's not just that you're really excited about this concept and that the "!" is actually part of the name?

      It's a bit of a stretch to say it looks like a camry. There some familiarity in it though.

      Pretty bland. What's up with the hobo suitcase behind the bumper?

      The front looks like it belongs on an American prototype car. Possibly a 90s Cadillac or Lincoln.

      We are looking at a preview of what the next-gen S-Class will look like.

      If the underlying shape of this is what the baby CLS will be, its not that bad. Obviously they will get rid of the ridiculous head and tail lights, but overall the idea of a baby CLS as this presents it--does seem workable in real life. I had thought it would just end up looking like an E- classcoupe with four doors since they all share that over used semi-circle green house profile. But this looks OK :|
