Lotec C1000When a wealthy citizen of the UAE decided he wanted to own the fastest car in the world, the Lotec C1000 was born. Mercedes-Benz and Lotus were contracted to build this machine. Powered by a twin turbo charged 5.6L V8, the Lotec C1000 can do 0-60 is around 3.2 seconds, and 0-125 in around 8 seconds. It has a top speed of 262 mph, and is powered by a mixture of unleaded gas and aviation fuel. This is a rare, beautiful, amazing piece of automotive history.

This vehicle is powered by a Jaguar V-12 engine, and features what is known as a neoclassic body style. This means it was built to somewhat resemble the classic cars of the ‘20s and ‘30s. If you want to drive a nostalgic, rare, and extremely unique classic car, this is the ride for you.
