1991 Mercedes Benz

Well, I’d like to off with the past future we’re living in and where we not have been in currently the technology that Mercedes has back in the days.

This was one of the few that Mercedes Benz with the technology that you thought existed back in the Of course, there was the C111 and the II and the C111 II-A and the C111 Those cars were to give us a look at the future and a C113 will be created to us a look at the future ahead of us.

try and find more articles of nature regarding the older concepts.

I’ll stop for now and enjoy seeing the pictures and the article if you’ve got time to do so.

Technologies like active control, tire pressure systems and proximity control may common now, but there was a time when these seemed as far-off and futuristic as a Mr. machine. One of the first vehicles to these examples of electronic was the 1991 Mercedes-Benz C 112 concept car the wedge-shaped ride you see here.

The purpose of the C 112 was to serve as a test bed for new and new technologies that can improve a driving dynamics and safety. is, if Mercedes only cared testing these engineering it could have easily these prototyped tech onto a C-Class sedan and it a day. But to the public, checking out parts on a sedan is about as and sexy as watching Ben Stein on If Mercedes really wanted to attention to its multi-million dollar feats, it would need to them on a car as exotic and hot as. say. Lima (or Claudia Schiffer if you want to be country and era-specific).

Mercedes-Benz C112

Yes, we know that of you young ‘uns are wondering the fuss is about. Even we can that the C 112 looks a bit dated but it looks old in the same way a Ferrari F40 old. Its styling is definitely of a bygone era, but anyone be more than willing to one in a heartbeat. You can practically see the ’80s off this thing, and as we’re of the ’80s, that old-school means this car is totally rad in our We like the C 112’s long, rear, we like the massive scoops and high-mounted side even more. But you know we like best about the C 112 Its gull-wing doors. Gull-wing were the ultimate in vehicular when we were younger; if doors are good enough for the 300 SL and DMC 12, they’re more than enough for us.

In addition to the features we already the C 112 also boasts active and rear spoilers. Again, we that these features are today, but these things nothing short of amazing in ’91. While accelerating in a line, the rear wing flush with the car, but the car hits 95 km/h, it shoots up and its angle by 10 degrees. Impressively, adjustment takes less one tenth of a second. Looking at of the thing, this active is so huge, it will shame the tails we see on most yankii-built Under hard braking, wing’s angle of attack increase so that it can act as an air brake. likes to point out that a similar active wing is a feature of today’s SLR McLaren

Aiding in the car’s handling is its Body Control (ABC) Again, these are common on cars today, but its computer-controlled suspension was nothing short of back in the day. Mercedes that the C 112 was the first car that can completely level while turning and braking. We’re other cars before the C 112 had sort of active suspension, but the C 112 is the first to stay flat a computer tells it to. Also in the car’s overall stability is an rear steering system. had this on its mid-’80s Prelude, but we hold that against

The C 112’s engine may seem by today’s standards, but it’s a damn fine piece of German engineering. A mid-mounted engine sends its 408 German-bred out through the rear wheels via a manual transmission. Our research that different sources are slightly different performance for this car (DCX doesn’t all the official numbers up), but seems to agree that car can achieve a sub-5-second 0-60 and a 194 mph top speed.

Though Mercedes built this German-ized much of its technology lives on Everything from the sub-compact to the SLR McLaren all benefit from the first engineered and shown on the C 112 car. Like the C 111 before it, the C 112 was a that was ahead of its time. someone at Mercedes is working on a C because we sure as hell another look into the
