NO, this isn’t an entrance to a 1980s nightclub.

This is actually a car, a very futuristic one at that.

This is Mercedes-Benz’s new electric car. Well, a sneaky teased picture of it anyway.

It will be part of Merc’s Frankfurt Motor Show reveals next week alongside the stinking Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen and the 1,000 Project One hypercar.

Nothing to see there then. Not!

Quite what type of model the electric car will be has not been revealed.

It will be called EQ because that’s the moniker of Mercedes’ electric sub-brand.

By it’s compact shape, we could hazard a guess at a BMW i3 rival.

But then again we could be wrong. It might just be an entrance to a nightclub after all.
