Lotec TT1000 For Sale, Based On Ferrari Testarossa, Styled Like An F40
You probably haven’t heard of Lotec before, but it is a German sports car producer that is specialized in optimizing cars. One of their most popular cars is the C1000 which came out in 1995. It all started back in 1990 when the company was commissioned by a very rich oil baron from the UAE to build a sports car just for him.
The price tag of the car was approximately $3.4 million and it was motivated by a V8 5.6-liter engine borrowed from Mercedes-Benz that was equipped with two turbochargers, managing to unleash 1,000 hp.
Another fine example of their work is the Sirius which is powered by the exact same engine you’ll find in the Pagani Zonda, a massive V12 power unit from Mercedes-Benz. The German automaker says that the engine outputs 1000 hp in its standard configuration but it can deliver up to 1,200 hp if they tune it.
Yet another car that managed to hit the 1,000 hp mark is this TT1000. Only three cars were made and all of them are based on the Ferrari Testarossa while adopting the styling of the legendary F40. Back in 1989, the price tag for this very exclusive car was 1,200,000 Deutschmark, which for those days was equal to about three times than an F40 and almost five times than a Testarossa, which made it probably one of the most expensive cars of that decade.
This one too has two turbochargers that raise the output of the engine to 1,000 hp and a peak torque of 1,100 Nm. It is a rear-wheel drive car that is able to do the 0-62 mph sprint in 4.1 seconds, on its way to a maximum speed of 370 km/h.
This car was manufactured in 1989 and it has been driven for only 7,456 miles (12,000 km). It is currently for sale but the price is available only on request.
