Mercedes Benz Illuminated Star Emblem

New from Mercedes‘ accessories division comes an option to enhance your Mercedes Benz in a flashy way: A glowing variant of their famous star logo.

The nocturnally-brilliant emblem uses optical fiber and LED lights to achieve the effect, which activates whenever the car is unlocked or when the engine is turned off. So this isn’t quite as cool as The Green Hornet’s green-glowing headlights, but it’s a step in the right direction.

The new Mercedes illuminated star can only be installed on models with a grille-mounted emblem (rather than a hood-mount). For more info, head to your local Mercedes Benz dealer and tell them you want to glow in the dark.

You can check out a promotional video of the new accessory in action below.
