Default 1000hp Mercedes Lotec C1000

I believe i found something special. In Concord on Church st i found a Lotec C1000. everything i read suggests its a 1 of 2 car.
I found one on ebay claiming its a 1 of 1 but i found 1 too? i can find a lot of info on it. a lot of it contradicts its self but looks to be rare at the vary least as fast as anything in production today. this is the ebay link and these are the pics i took today.... proof is in the reflection

never heard of this either.. just wondering why if this car has been around why everyone is making such a huge deal about the bugatti veyron now, since it seems to have quite similar performance aspects

Bugatti is a production car. this was just a 1-2 off car that didn't need to meet any real requirements such as safety or reliability. the Bugatti is a real car that you could drive with some degree of comfort. this car appears to be nothing more than a high budget home brew super car.

i don't know much about it... as always, all i did was google what i found.

that is the true, one and only Mercedes Lotec C-1000. they got from **Kruse Auto Auction in Auburn, Indiana.**



i took some new pics from inside the place (look back at the first post for new pics). the car is apart because the clutch went out.

The car is a 1 of 1 Lotec C1000 built in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz. I used to work with the owner of the store the car is located at in Concord. We purchased the car last September at the Kruse Auto Auction in Auburn, Indiana. You will be able to see the actual auction this spring on ESPN2 on their show "Bidding Wars". It is very real and yes it's apart due to a bad slave cylinder in the clutch, When you depress the clutch it dumps all the fluid out. I have been told that it is now fixed. Very small cockpit. If you are over 5'7" and 150lbs you won't fit. It was purchased from the previous owner, a dealer in Atlanta, who had bought it at Barrett. It's in Concord since thats where the owner lives and has a nice collection of exotics and high performance vehicles.The car is for sale....
