Electro-hydraulically gullwing doors

Novel for steering, clutch, brakes, seat and mirror adjustment

For the racing season in Group C, in cooperation with the Swiss team fielded the C 11. Quite the team was world champion at the end of the This spurred on the engineers at They were looking for a way to active dynamic handling for large-scale production cars and up with the high-performance sports car C It was powered by a

six-liter V12 engine which 300 kW (408 hp) and put 580 Newton meters of on the crankshaft. The idea was to transfer performance optimally to the road at the limits with the highest of active safety.

Active Control

The C 112 was the first car to afford suspension named Active Control (ABC). Each is equipped with a combination of and hydraulic servo cylinder. detect all vehicle motions displacement, roll and pitch. To the motion, computers evaluate the and control the active suspension accordingly. The result: an unprecedented of stable roadholding.

The sports car active rear-wheel steering. It directional deviation which can be for instance, by ruts and side or by road surfaces with tire-to-road adhesion. Even in situations, for example load during cornering, it maintains the and traction behavior to which the is accustomed. An anti-lock braking (ABS) and acceleration skid (ASR) of the latest generation the technology.

Equipped with all these the C 112 offers neutral handling of load and roadway condition, during high-speed cornering. Its reserves were thus than those of previous cars a result from volume-built Mercedes-Benz cars benefited.

Active aerodynamics

And the C 112 has more to offer. One of its highlights is aerodynamics. Fully adjustable, the spoiler and the rear airfoil are to the particular driving situation to the optimum compromise between low air on the one hand and high downforce on the

During normal operation the airfoil is inactive and forms an part of the rear body in this inactive state the car has the Cd, and lift forces tend zero. But it’s quite a story during high-speed at the critical limit: here, larger wheel contact permit decidedly greater acceleration and more stable

In such a situation, the rear extends to the rear and upward a tenth of a second and, in instances, also changes the of incidence. The lip of the front spoiler, its height, works together the rear airfoil. The system higher cornering forces and extends the critical limits for the

The rear spoiler is also to improve the emergency stopping with lightning speed it is into the wind when and helps slow the vehicle In addition, the brake system distributes the brake pressure front and rear wheels to optimum deceleration. Other tested in the C 112 are tire pressure which warns the driver of pressure loss, a distance radar for vehicles traveling and partly new and different sensor for steering, clutch, brakes, seat and mirror adjustment.

The return of the gullwing doors

As the vehicle since the C 111, the C 112 featured gullwing doors. the 1950s they have a symbol of the sports cars Mercedes-Benz: the 300 SL coupe (W 194/198 1952 and 1954, respectively) was the to have them and a car whose technical qualities made it a in its day. The C 112 with its streamlined takes that up again.
