RK Motors Collector Car Auctions has announced plans to auction off a handful of rare Mercedes.

RK Motors Collector Car Auctions has announced plans to auction off a handful of rare Mercedes.

First up, the 1995 Mercedes Lotec C1000 was commissioned by a United Arab Emirates-based businessman who wanted to own the fastest car in the world. It features aerodynamic styling and a twin-turbo 5.6-liter V8 engine that develops 1000 bhp (745 kW). The engine is connected to a six-speed Hewland transmission which enables the 2,381 lb (1,080 kg) coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 268 mph (431 km/h).

If that hasn't caught your attention, perhaps a 2002 Mercedes CLK GTR will do the trick. One of only six roadsters in existence, the model is in "pristine condition" and only has 71 miles (114 km) odometer. It is powered by a 6.9-liter V12 engine that produces 604 bhp (450 kW) and 572 lb-ft (775 Nm) of torque. This allows the car to run from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds and top out at 199 mph (320 km/h).

The cars will be auctioned off at the Charlotte Convention Center in North Carolina on November 2nd and the event will be simulcast in the United Arab Emirates at the seven-star Emirates Palace Hotel.
