Reviving Brilliance: The Mercedes-Benz One-Eleven

Mercedes Supercar Returns

Mercedes-Benz has uncovered an exciting new notion – a concept sports car that is going to dominate the limelight as much as their C 111. A commencement of images, and a short-length film displaying a digital grille presenting the name One-Eleven, ushers in this teaser campaign.

Not much is revealed by the promotional images, besides the obvious LED lights at the front and back with a prism design. We find the orange coloration of the outer layer particularly outstanding; as Germans have usually been conservative when it comes to selecting hues for their concept vehicles in the past. An example of this can be seen in the Mercedes Vision AVTR Concept – from its luminous wheel rims to its dull matte gray framework.

The hue that we can view here appears to hark back to the tangerine shade which Mercedes opted to feature the C 111 at worldwide motor exhibitions.

Rather than just one car, the C 111 was actually a series of vehicles engineered by Mercedes in the 1960s and 70s. Designed as a successor to the famed 300 SL Gullwing, this range of cars went through various changes before ultimately being left unproduced.

Mercedes originally opted for a middling, three-rotor Wankel power source, nevertheless the C 111-II had a turbocharged diesel. Ultimately, Mercedes’ production count for the C 111 remained at just sixteen, featuring mainly rotary and diesel mechanisms; although there were claims of a V8 unit also being formed.

Examining the preview video, there’s no doubt that One-Eleven will be in the model of the C 111-II. This is readily perceptible from the circular headlights, which remind one of the ones seen on the Seventies motor car.

Mercedes-Benz’s chief design officer, Gorden Wagener, had some fond words for the classic C 111 car. He shared an image of the vehicle and said it was “the face of a front runner.” And he believes that this “timeless” classic is ready to inspire a new era of iconic luxury.

Many years of anticipation finally came to an end as Mercedes-Benz unveiled its newest mid-engine supercar – the Mercedes-AMG One. This stunning model marks a new era in high-performance engineering and design from the German auto giant. Before this, fans of the brand had only been able to rely on the iconic 300 SL Gullwing for a taste of true performance driving, but it has now been replaced with something even more potent – the Mercedes-AMG SLS and GT series.

Is Mercedes hinting at its initial manufacturing electric sports car? It crafted an electrocharged edition of the SLS, though that motor vehicle was earlier than its time. At present as Mercedes is energizing everything, it could formulate a sparring partner to the Maserati MC20 Folgore electro-supercar. It’s a new area and people luxury automobile assemblers will join in impending years.

Mercedes might have given us a subtle hint, as one of the taillights appears to show an “H”, which could be an indication of an electric vehicle with a dual-motor setup. We are unsure what the “H” stands for, but the “243” next to it may suggest a potential top speed or motor output in kilowatts.

As its peak speed, the One-Eleven would be slower than the recent record-breaking electric vehicle (EV) from Rimac, the Nevera. However, the latter carries a hefty price tag of millions and this is something Mercedes usually doesn’t partake in.

For a vehicle such as this to be successful, Mercedes-Benz would need to battle with companies like Maserati, and in addition to that, unknowns like the Rolls-Royce Spectre and Bentley’s not declared EV, which are estimated to turn out double the strength of their existing W12s.

We eagerly anticipate Mercedes unleashing this mysterious vehicle, as it has us truly mystified.
