1970 Mercedes-Benz C111-II – Jay Leno’s Garage
Jay Leno’s Garage

Constantin von Kageneck from the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center takes Jay under the hood of his dream car, the rare Wankel-engined, ’70s supersports C111.
I always wanted one of these as a lad. To my young eyes it was stunningly beautiful and just so very, very sexy. Still feel the same way. This film represents the very first time I have seen a C111 in motion.
Very disappointed that they never made them for the people. Ah well. Not that I could ever afford one, but they’d be on the streets, and, I dare say could be touched!
Thoughts were non-existent for many a moon but were just rekindled, moments ago, after seeing this video listed at YT while getting code for one on the 2002 Turbo for the BMW club website.
