Other tech goodies include an adjustable suspension and a braking system borrowed from an S55 model. The car uses the same wheel setup as the SLS, using GWA Type A rims (19x9-inch for the front axle and 20x11-inch for the rear one), with 265/35 and 295/30 tires.
The body of the vehicle is made from aluminum and comes with enhanced aerodynamics, suing a power-operated adjustable rear wing, a rear diffuses as well as a front spoiler with a generously-sized air intake.
In the interior, it’s all a 70s’ party, as we get carbon fiber seats covered in plaid, instrumentation with a design borrowed from the W120R (including the radio and the a/c control unit), brushed aluminum pedals, dashboard accent and illuminated door sills.
The Ciento Once prototype is expected to become a one-off and will be finished in brilliant silver with black accents (the interior will get the same color theme).
“The Forgotten Gullwing. Back in 1970, this car was a hero, breaking all the records with its revolutionary Wankel diesel engine. A few prototypes where built, but never came out as a production model. Arturo Alonso, GWA owner, felt that this beautiful and legendary car deserved a revival. Making careful changes to the original design and updating it with modern details, he created, what he calls, the“Ciento Once,” stated the press release.
