The Mercedes-Benz C292 was a stillborn Group C prototype race car intended for the 1992 World Sportscar Championship season as an evolution of the Mercedes-Benz C291, but never raced due to Mercedes-Benz withdrawing from sportscar racing after a dismal 1991 season.Built by Sauber for Mercedes-Benz, the C292 featured the same Mercedes-Benz M291 3.5L Flat-12 which had initially disappointed in 1991, but during the offseason continued development and testing and was finally able to produce power similar to Jaguar, Peugeot, and Toyota.However, given the large amount of money Mercedes-Benz had invested in sportscar racing since their return, while receiving very little returns even after winning two championships and a 24 Hours of Le Mans, the decision was made to cancel the project after only a few C292s had been produced by Sauber.

The exact number of C292s that were built is unknown, however one remaining copy is on display in the Sauber museum.With the cancellation, the C292 was never tested, and therefore its potential in comparison to its competitors was never able to be seen. It is unknown if Mercedes even got to the point of installing the M291 engine in the C292.This would be the last Mercedes-Benz sportscar until the launch of the CLK-GTR in 1997.

  • Mercedes-Benz C292 foi um protótipo de corrida para o Group C,desenvolvido pela Mercedes-Benz com apoio da Sauber, para competir na WSC de 1992 mas que nunca correu efetivamente, pela desistência da Mercedes-Benz de competir.Criada pela Sauber para a Mercedes-Benz, a C292 apresentava o mesmo motor da C291, um Mercedes-Benz M291 3.5L Flat-12, que tinha inicialmente desapontado em 1991, mas que durante 1992, foi aperfeiçoado em testes, e finalmente foi capaz de produzir resultados semelhante aos motores da Jaguar, Peugeot, e Toyota.Contudo, dada a grande quantidade de dinheiro que a Mercedes-Benz tinha investido no automobilismo desde o seu regresso, ao receber retornos pouco frutíferos, mesmo depois de vencer dois campeonatos e uma 24 Horas de Le Mans, foi tomada a decisão de cancelar o projeto, após poucos C292 forem produzidas pela Sauber. O número exato de C292 que foram construídas é desconhecida, porém uma cópia restante está em exposição no museu da Sauber.Com o cancelamento, a C292 nunca foi testada, e, portanto, o seu potencial em relação aos seus concorrentes nunca foi capaz de ser visto. Não se sabe se a Mercedes mesmo chegou ao ponto de instalar o motor M291 no C292.Este foi o último carro esportivo de competição lançado pela Mercedes-Benz até o lançamento do Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR em 1997.
