The Mercedes-Benz C111 Research Vehicle was first completed in 1969 and sported a fiberglass body with gullwing doors. The C111 was tested with a center mounted Wankel Engine, turbo-Diesel engine with the final C111 model hosting a 500 hp V8 Gasoline engine. Breaking several diesel and gas speed records
