Mercedes Image Gallery -- Page 2

The Mercedes CLK GTR is one of the most amazing automobiles on the face of this earth. I have had the wonderful opportunity to see this car in action on two occasions, and I must say, I was incredibly impressed. If I were rich, I would own one of these cars.

As for the C112, Keith Gutsell was nice enough to send me this description from the World Encyclopedia of Cars: "There was a follow-up to the C111, logically called the C112. It appeared at the 1991 Frankfurt Show as a mock-up, by which time Mercedes-Benz was convinced that the market for such a supercar was not right - probably correctly, given Jaguar's experiences with the XJ2220. The C112 would have been a stunning 6.0 litre V-twelve powered mid-engined supercar. Mercedes even took orders for it (700 were received), but returned them all."

The Vision SLR is one of the most striking concept cars I've ever seen. My hope for this car is that Mercedes brings it into production, and remains as true to the concept as Dodge did with the Viper.

I don't know anything about the racing truck, other than that the picture looks really cool. But I'm sure it's probably faster than many sports cars. I can't imagine getting sideways in such a large vehicle.

The F400 Carving is a concept with some wild looks and some even wilder technology. I feel a little bummed because it uses a concept I thought of a few years ago, but never had any way to implement or anything -- active camber adjustment. This car's camber can be radically altered while the car is being driven, and mercedes uses the technology to use one part of the tire for turning and another for going straight. The tires have one compound on the flat section that normally contacts the road, and another compound on the inner rounded edge that contacts the road when the camber is tweaked for massive negative camber. The compound that is normally in contact with the road is a fairly hard, long wearing compound with low rolling resistance. The compound on the inner edge is a much softer, stickier compound for maximum grip while turning. From their tests, it appears to work well.
