Have you ever heard of the 1995 Lotec Mercedes-Benz C1000? If you haven’t, I won’t hold it against you, because there was only one ever produced. And that one example is currently for sale at Lamborghini Carolinas.

The car was built after an oil tycoon from the United Arab Emirates wanted to create the world’s fastest street-legal car. He hired Lotec, a German company, to build the car. After working together with Mercedes-Benz for five years, the C1000 was created.

It comes packing a Mercedes-Benz-sourced twin-turbo 5.6-liter V8 engine and a Hewland 5-speed manual transmission. Push this engine to the limit and it will rocket from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, and will keep you planted until it hits its top speed of 268 mph.
