    So does Mercedes still own the car? It was not exhibited in their museum when we were there.

    Manufactures often switch around in their cars displayed at museums, so they sometimes are at larger showrooms around the world.
    ex. When i was at the Peugeot museum this summer, the Oxia and Proxima weren't there, as they where on display at the Paris showroom (unfortunately).

    Not a big fan of the front-end, but the rest of the car is indeed beauteous.

    Here's the short story of the car FYI:

    (...) The car, which was built in the year 1969, was constructed by Bruno Sacco. Bruno Sacco was the chief stylist of Mercedes-Benz from 1974 to 1999. One of his projects was the C 111. The design study (...) is a layout of the C111. It is totally made out of wood. It has no enginge or any further technic inside. It was only built for design reasons - to get a feeling for the form. (...) The company decided to build the form of the orange C111. The design study was never shown on a trade show.

    From 1969 to 2001 the car was stored in a garage of our design department. In 2001 Mercedes-Benz Classic discovered the sleeping beauty. We assured the car and for the next 9 years we stored the car in our warehouse in Fellbach. In 2010 we decided to show this beautifull car for the first time in a glasbox of the museums car park.
    Thanks to C. Knecht @ Daimler AG Archives and Classic Car Collection
