Spotted: unique Mercedes-Benz C111 design concept

Hey Guys

Today I've spotted something really, really nice and really, really, really rare at Mercedes-Benz Munich, the Mercedes-Benz C 111 from 1969. A Design Concept by the former Mercedes-Benz designer Bruno Sacco. He is acknowledged as one of the greatest designers in automotive history.

What a shame it never went in Production, but as the another ESF prototypes (Experimental Safety Vehicle) like the C111-I and C111-II it was just a concept, unfortunately.

When the classic meets his grandson ...

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG & Mercedes-Benz C111 design concept

There's also more arriving...



  1. C111's were no ESF's, the ESF's were white sedans with modified dark front aprons, three of them are on display in the Stuttgart Mercedes Museum. The C111 serie was a test for alternative engines (wankelengines and later to maximize performance from diesel and petrol engines) and for the first few cars also a test for new body materials.

  2. The front looks a bit like a '68 Corvette.

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
