Mercedes C111 Replica by GWA Tuning


Paying tribute to one of the most advanced Mercedes concept cars, well advanced for its time!, GWA Tuning has came up with a modern-day interpretion of it in form of the Ciento Once.

Like the original concept this replica too has a very low and exquisite body garnished with gullwing doors, but it comes as a more modern design and looks sleeker.

The Ciento features a tubular space frame chassis, a 6-speed Cima H type transaxle and a special tuned exhaust, and is powered by a Mercedes V12 engine developing 408 hp. The Ciento Once braking system comes directly from Mercedes S55 AMG.

The car also gets an aerodynamics package with an electric-operated rear adjustable wing and a rear diffuser and front spoiler with a big air intake will guide the air flow into the radiators and then out through the hood vents.

GWA has tried to keep the wieght of the car low by using aluminum panels, but it still weighs nearly 1400 kg. The wheels and tires for this car use the same set up as the SLS, the car runs on staggered GWA Type A wheels, 19X9 front and 20X11 rears, with 265/35/19 and 295/30/20 rubber.

It is now supposed ot be a performance machine or something, it’s just a cool recreation of a very great car.
