• GWA tuning creates a one-off prototype based on the Mercedes C111

      The Mercedes C111 was part of a series of experimental cars produced by Mercedes in the 60's and 70's. Mercedes experimented with rotary engines and fiberglass bodies and the styling of the concept was very unique. The owner of GWA tuning in Texas decided the car deserved a modern update and is building his version on a tubular space frame chassis. A 408 hp Mercedes V12 is positioned in a mid-engine layout. The car weighs around 3000 pounds and yes, those are gullwing doors. Wheels are borrowed from the SLS with 19 inch fronts and 20 inch rears. Likely only one of these will be made so put your checkbook down. Plus, wait until you see the final product as these are just renderings.

        Many of the smaller motors are available with a 6-speed option especially in Europe.
