Bulgarian Students Impress Mercedes

Date: 07.09.2006

Bulgarian students from the Technical University impressed Mercedes top designers. The prototype model they designed on Mercedes project was exhibited in the University branch in Sliven (southeastern Bulgaria) yesterday.

"Of course, we are interested in the young Bulgarian colleagues, it is namely why we gave them the opportunity to work on the project. They started from the beginning and are doing absolutely fine," said Prof. Harold Leschke, a Daimler Chrysler designer who has been directly involved in the project for a year. The project A Car, Made in Bulgaria is carried out in Sliven under the aegis of Sliven Mayor Yordan Lechkov. Prof. Leschke is the man who is best familiar with the work of Industrial Design students Volodia Dimitrov, Ivan Ivanov and Daniel Chavdarov.

The prototype model was a hit among the guests of the designer studio, especially constructed for its exhibition in Sliven. Mercedes Chief Designer Peter Pfeiffer arrived in Sliven to see the work of the Bulgarian students. On December 28, 2006 the prototype will be presented for the last time. By then, the model would have to have been applied on a real car, Smart model. "The interior and parts of the exterior will be totally renovated after our design," said Volodia Dimitrov. He said he would like to keep on working in automobile design, something that is impossible in Bulgaria. Daimler-Chrysler would probably employ him next year.
