As Mr. Draper can tell you, nostalgia can be a pretty powerful force. But we didn’t think the Model T was tugging at anyone’s heartstrings.

Apparently we were wrong.

The folks at Mercedes-Benz just put together this open-top wire-wheeled contraption—called the F-Cell Roadster—apparently as a paean to the carefree motoring days of the 1900s. Of course, they wouldn’t be engineers if they didn’t throw in a bit of technology too: The F-Cell is entirely electric, tops out at 15mpg, and has a maximum operating range of 217 miles.

We wouldn’t expect to see it in stores any time soon, but maybe they’ve got a golf cart division in the works?
