Mercedes C111, laboratory and records of the 70

In the late 60’s developing a series of prototypes not only would lead to the and improvement of a number of technologies to decades later production of Mercedes-Benz. but also the achievement of records speed that the technological level of the brand the star .

The Mercedes-Benz C111 was above all the need to develop new That’s why we laid the groundwork for test diesel engines. or rotary engines Wankel. The would take place for a decade and across four fast prototypes both gain as many loyal at Mercedes-Benz willing to pay anything for However, since they designed solely as prototypes of would never be given the light for production.

Mercedes-Benz C111 -I: Wankel, the

The first model study in 1969. It was a spectacular mid-engined and rear gull-wing doors. The was that caused no little. It was with a fiberglass body and an dominated Kammback the-art It could build up to a total of units.

The Mercedes-Benz C111 -I was with a Wankel rotary of three rotors of 600 cm 3 each. The output was 280 hp at 7000 rpm and would be of reaching 260 km / h. At that time, that one of the fastest production was the Ferrari Daytona and did not exceed 280 km / h.

C111 -II: a Wankel to 290 km / h

But after initial success wanted to go even further. replaced the original engine for a new this time with rotor and an output of 350 hp at 7,000 rpm would get beyond the 290 km / h and acceleration of less than 5 seconds in the 0 to 100 km / h.

the success achieved by the rotary named inmate was M950F. The developed over the years 60 and 70 never mounted a production Mercedes-Benz then decide to go for line of engines that had a much more promising and were more consistent restrictions on emissions were gaining ground in U.S. and after the crisis 73.

Mercedes-Benz -IID: the arrival of the diesel

The most important change come with the third of this series, or rather and a half seconds, which the Wankel engine to opt for a diesel. borrowed the 3.0 liter 240D and a mechanical five-cylinder in-line great potential to improve its Thanks though Garret intercooler and got an output of 190 hp .

During of two hours four drivers toured the circuit for 60 hours in they traveled over km and set 16 new records. Among them is to get cruise 252 km / h on average and an acceleration 0 to 100 km / h in 6.8 seconds.

The success of Mercedes-Benz encourage enhance its prototype diesel. spent all his time developinga advanced aerodynamic work at the with a coefficient of friction so ridiculous top speeds could stratospheric. It increased the wheelbase and the surface was decreased.

In an effort to engine performance of their dispensed passenger space and a cooling width was to introduce air into the intercooler. The result was and not in another visit to Nardò would get to keep average for more than 1,000 or 12 hours over 300 km / h .

Mercedes-Benz -IV: Turbo for speed

But perhaps all of these milestones insufficient to Mercedes-Benz were with breaking new records it demonstrated the effectiveness of its diesel to maintain cruise speeds even today, and they had to demonstrate that their were also the fastest.

This is proposed to break the record achieved in circuit and at time the sport held a bhp from the American Can-Am, reached 355,854 km / h. This left the diesel opt for a 4.5 V8 petrol and their number up to 4.8 liters Two turbos KKK and a triple plate to cope with a maximum of 600 Nm and an output of 500 hp .

Once again the speak for themselves: 403,978 km / h top was marked by the fourth and final of this series at Nardo in

This is the story of Mercedes-Benz The testing laboratory used by the mark over the 60 and 70 to test the of its engines on authentic wonders of that even today call our attention.
