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.
- 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.
