Of course a Mercedes-Benz golf cart is all kinds of luxurious awesomeness (pics)


Conceived by Mercedes-Benz design chief Gorden Wagener based on requests submitted by golf fans from all over the world, the “Vision Golf Cart” is poised to one day put all other golf carts to shame due to its luxury, solar power panel technology for charging the battery and the many, many over-the-top features, including a “Fore Button,” which it can only be assumed to be exactly what it sounds like. Although given it’s a Mercedes, it could be something even crazier as well.

According to a Business Insider writeup, no stone was left unturned when it came to designing arguably the world’s most luxurious and golf cart: “Using touch screen monitors, virtually all aspects of the cart can be controlled without extra buttons. The centre console also incorporates a multimedia panel that includes a rotatable docking station for an iPad or iPhone and a USB interface.”


Between the iPad/iPhone docking station and repeated visits from the Beer Cart Girl, how many of these are going to be driven straight into water hazards? Ah, who am I kidding? Not a single potential owner of the Vision Golf Cart would denigrate themselves by procuring a couple cans of suds from the Beer Cart Gal. About the only thing that may happen is a minor collision between two of them when a bottle of Grey Poupon is being exchanged between two passengers.

And still, despite the Vision Golf Cart being the epitome of golf cart luxury, I’d still prefer one of Bubba Watson’s hovercraft golf carts. Those bad boys are way cooler and far less of a snobbish display of excess, even if they are grossly expensive.
