The German marque makes heads turn yet again with its new Mercedes Vision One-Eleven Hypercar concept. With this new design the luxury automotive giant returns to its C-111 concept from 1969 and reimagines it for the future. So, get ready to take off into a new era of sporty luxury. The C-111 was first shown at the 1969 Frankfurt motor show and comprised of 16 versions that the marque used as test beds for several power trains. In between concerns with the engine, body construction, and the subsequent fuel crisis of the 1970s, the dream of a production C-111 never came to be. Now Mercedes has reimagined the car with the new Vision One-Eleven, an electric take on the classic that is not only a study in design but, like its inspiration, is a showcase for emerging supercar technology.
Inspired by the iconic C 111, the extraordinary Mercedes-Benz Vision One-Eleven showcases a highly dynamic design language and innovative all-electric drive technology. With an athletic exterior design, the orange colour futuristic Mercedes-Benz Vision One-Eleven impresses with its dynamic one-bow design. Instead of the wedge shape that defined the original C-111, the new concept features the signature one-bow design that defines all modern Mercedes vehicles.
That’s not all, the most striking feature of the car ought to be sleek and flush-fitted gullwing doors introducing us to a touch of futuristic elegance. The gullwing doors, reminiscent of their predecessors, showcase a harmonious blend of classic design elements and cutting-edge innovation, creating a captivating and timeless presence on the road. But the front and rear of the car have pixelated displays and can display animated messages.
The striking interior is white with silver leather upholstery complemented by orange and bright chrome accents. The low reclined seating position, makes the cockpit feel like a lounge—or a Formula 1 car. Being the world’s first sports car with a lounge interior, the modern interior of the Vision One-Eleven contrasts with the flat pixel display that runs across the entire width of the dashboard and takes up the shape of the two light strips at the front and rear. Its innovative user experience seamlessly integrates advanced technology and luxurious comfort, thus transforming every journey into a captivating and personalised experience.
