This crazy self-driving concept car has been spotted prowling the streets of San Francisco.

Redditor sfchillin snapped this photo the car next to our city’s oldest moving landmark. How fitting that the sign next on the cable car says “Training Car No Passengers.”

So what’s the deal with this? It’s none other than the Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion research car, for the future when driverless cars will most likely become the norm.

Here are some promo shots of the vehicle:

Blogger Jason Torchinsky noted that the car chose to ignore the “No Parking” painted on the curb. So who gets the ticket?
