It was a record breaking super sports car. The experimental vehicle with the magic code C 111 stood up to every challenge between 1969 and 1979. Painted in a contemporary orange, the C 111 was a seventies child. It was a tester of a Wankel engine, a turbo-diesel engine and an internal combustion engine but it did not go to the salesrooms, instead it found its way ino the Guinness book of world records. In 1978, it clearly demonstrated the efficiency of the turbo-diesel engine by winning 9 world records.
