Mercedes-Benz showcased the SF1 concept in 2012. DC Design showed some skills to convert an old W126 S-Class to futuristic looking SF1 Concept. The car gets two doors instead of four in the donor vehicle. The headlamps get projector lamps while the tail lamps get a unique curvy shape.

The modified example also gets Mercedes-Benz grille at the front. The engine is the same as the W126 S-Class. The car was christened as Mercedes SCL 500 by the dealership who sold the vehicle.

DC showcased the Zelo at 2000 Auto Expo, and by 2002, as many as 18 orders of the car were received. The Zelo is based on the Daewoo Cielo. It is a two seater coupe and looks quite a sports car.

The Zelo gets chopped chassis and newly fabricated body. The new headlamps have as many as three projector lamps in them. Looking at the Zelo, it may feel like a rear-engined car, but the engine position is at the front only.
