Specialty German marque Melkus Sportwagen GmbH will be bringing two new models to the Top Marques show next weekend in Monaco.

The RS2000 GT and GTS are two variants of a lightweight sport coupe (975 kg / 2145 lbs ) both fitted with a 2.0 liter turbocharged power plant supplied by a "well-known German manufacturer," according to Melkus.

The top-performing GTS comes with 350 PS (257 kW / 345 bhp) and a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). It does the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in just 3.9 seconds.

The GT model comes with 300 PS (221 kW / 296 bhp) and has a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of 4.5 seconds.

Both the GT and GTS come with a adjustable dampers for the suspension and AP performance brakes. To get that curb weight below the 1000 kg (2205 lb) mark, Melkus makes substantial use of carbon-fiber components, including for the aerodynamic kit which features a front spoiler, rear wing, rear diffuser and side air guides.
