Texas tuner builds new version of rotary-powered classic.
While Mercedes's original C111s used experimental Wankel and diesel engines, the new car makes do with a mid-mounted version of the Mercedes-Benz M120 V12 (also used in the Pagani Zonda), producing 408 horsepower and connected to a six-speed transmission. The brakes come from the S55 AMG, while the wheel-and-tire setup comes from the SLS; an adjustable coil-over suspension keeps the car on track.
The car was commissioned by Arturo Alonso, owner of GWA; while his company says the Ciento Once "will likely be one of a kind," we're willing to bet they'd build a few more if they find the buyers. (Though if for some reason they can't build you one, they also make a bitchin' body kit for the E63 Wagon.)
