Odd Looking One-Off Lotec Mercedes-Benz C1000

Meet the most interesting (looking) supercar in the world: The Lotec Mercedes-Benz C1000. While it has the same top speed as the world’s fastest production car, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, it is a bit challenging to absorb aesthetically. It also emerged a full ten years before the Bugatti Veyron took the supercar scene by storm.

The Lotec Mercedes-Benz C1000 at a glance:

  • Top speed of 268 miles per hour
  • Capable of hitting the 0-60 sprint in 3.2 scorching seconds.
  • 1,000bhp
  • Powered by a 5.6-liter twin-turbo Mercedes-Benz V8 engine
  • $3.5 million dollar price tag for this one-off creation.
  • Extreme aerodynamics and carbon fiber help this supercar fly.

Fun fact: The C in the C1000 stands for carbon fiber.

The Lotec Mercedes-Benz C1000 is the only example in existence, and I am uncertain if that is a good or a bad thing. The exterior takes a few looks to get used to, and the interior looks quite scratched and used up. That could be because it was built in the mid-90s with aspirations of becoming the fastest car on the planet. A man from the United Arab Emirates commissioned the car with the desire to embarrass the next generation of supercars, according to the rumor mill.

The interior has seen better days

The buyer contacted Mercedes-Benz with his wish, rather than Ferrari or Lamborghini. Mercedes then paired up with high-performance tuner Lotec to make the man’s dream come true (kind of).  The end result was this 1995 Lotec Mercedes-Benz C1000.

As has the engine…

If you like this one-off Mercedes-Benz contraption, it is actually going to hit the auction block this Halloween at RKMCCA auction house. It is speculated that the car will go for around $1,300,000.  I hope that includes a new interior.
