Every car guy or gal has at one point in their mechanical driven lives entertained the thought of what they would do with an unlimited budget. Would you buy that HEMI Cuda you’ve always dreamed about or maybe a ’69 Camaro ZL1. Well in 1990, a business man from the United Arab Emirates with extremely deep pockets decided to go another route, instead of purchasing a historic or fast production car, he had another dream – To own the world’s fastest street vehicle.

The gentleman contracted Mercedes Benz to build his dream car. Mercedes and the company Lotec designed, fabricated, and tested a brand new never seen before supercar. $3.5 Million dollars later, the businessman had his dream ride. The Lotec Mercedes-Benz C1000, which Lotec and Mercedes claim is capable of 268mph! To put this in perspective, the almighty Bugatti Veyron SS is limited to 257, but has the ability to push it to 267mph. Nearly 20 years old the Lotec Mercedes Benz C1000 still stands at the top.

The C1000 name stands for its Carbon fiber body and the 1000 horsepower that it creates from its massive power plant. Built to push into the near 300mph range, the group at Lotec spared no expense when constructing the body. Aerodynamically the body is absolutely incredible, every piece flows into the next flawlessly. The body looks like it was designed to take flight more so than driving on the highway. The production of the carbon fiber body may have been extensive, but the result was a Supercar whose total curb weight was only 2381lbs.

Look under the back of the massive rear spoiler and you’ll find 5.6L Mercedes-Benz V8 that has been equipped with twin Garrett turbos that help generate the 1000hp. The sound that comes out of the dual exhaust is absolutely breathtaking. A Hewland 6-speed transmission is responsible for transferring all that power to the ground.

Inside the C1000 is all business, the supercar’s doors open vertically and reveal a bright red and black carbon fiber interior. Two bucket racing style seats are equipped with 3-point harnesses to protect the driver and passenger at break-neck speeds. Inside you will find air conditioning, adjustable pedals, adjustable steering column, and believe it or not a luggage compartment.

The C1000 is arguably one of the rarest supercars in the world. It has a breathtaking look, serious power under its carbon fiber shell, and one of the greatest stories to go along with it. Don’t miss your chance to own this 1 of 1 amazingly rare supercar. Sold on a bill of sale.
