Hold the (bat)phone, is this a production version of Batman's tumbler?

That would be something, but no; our sources suggest this heavily camouflaged prototype is a self-driven concept from Mercedes-Benz, spied this week ahead of a debut at the coming Consumer Electronics Show.

The German carmaker had only just revealed its autonomous interior study ahead of the Show, and now it appears there’s a new concept to go with it.

The concept was heavily camouflaged when snapped by our spy photographers, but we can perhaps see the outline a low-slung four-door body with a low roof line.

Rear features appear to include LED tail-lamps and a ‘fastback’ style boot, while the outline of what could be a thin boot-lid spoiler is also visible.

Two odd ‘bulges’ on either side at the front could be anything from a radical new styling direction to aerodynamic wheel arches - or props, simply designed to throw fans off the scent.

Front and rear overhangs are minimal, as the four wheels (wearing relatively skinny tyres) are located as far forward and rearward as possible.

Thanks to the earlier reveal, we know the interior could feature four swivelling chairs in place of ‘traditional’ car seats along with virtual reality goggles for each passenger.

The power plant for now is a closely guarded secret, although a fully-electric drive train or even a hydrogen-powered motor have been rumoured.

Also a mystery at present is the level of autonomy that the concept will feature, and whether its existence is more about future styling for self-driven cars or a display of their function.

All will be revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas from January 6-9 - stay tuned to TMR for more.
