As already mentioned, it is based on the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door coupe that has been now converted from four doors to two and they are hinged at the rear in a suicide fashion. Moreover, the front fascia of the car is inspired by the Mercedes G-Wagon SUV and the three-pointed Mercedes star logo in the grille has been replaced with the image of a bear. 

It symbolizes the phrase ‘Bear Witness’ and is said to be the name of the line of the upcoming limited-edition Mercedes-Benz apparel and accessories that will be made available soon online as well as at the Mercedes-AMG Experience Center in Miami. Called “The Flip”, this one-off coupe concept will make its official debut at the Grand Prix USA in Miami, Florida. 

Mercedes-AMG in its official statement said, “The mission of this joint project is to give more students from disadvantaged communities access to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) education in order to be equipped with the skills required for future-focused jobs and to invent new technologies. All the activities surrounding this one-of-a-kind vehicle will benefit will.i.am’s “i.am angel Foundation.”
