Auction: 268MPH One-Off Lotec Mercedes C1000

Tuning

Custom built in 1995 for an Arab oil tycoon, the one-of-a-kind C1000 ran just 1,601 miles.

In 1990, a United Arab Emirates oil tycoon approached Mercedes-Benz specialist tuners Lotec, asking for something special. Something that would really stand out. It took five years, but he was finally handed the keys to this distinctive C1000, a $3.4 million personal statement made of carbon fiber body panels and monocoque. The bespoke car was fitted with a twin-turbo Mercedes V-8, a 5.6-liter monster making 1,000 horsepower.

Weighing in at 3,263-lbs, the race car was also given a five-speed manual transmission and three-disc dry clutch, all combining to give it a top speed of 268 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 3.2 seconds. After just 1,601 miles on the road, the one-of-one C1000 is now up for sale by RK Motors Charlotte through eBay Motors. Currently, the top bid is at $200,000.While this would be a great way to stand out in the crowd - it isn’t likely to get road licensed anywhere, so you better have access to a track if you want to make a bid on it.
