The bidding started at $350,000 and so far, no one's placed a bid. You have two days left to beat Jay Leno to this one-of-a-kind Merc, so get to it.
Ever since Henry Ford invented the assembly line and ushered in the era of mass production, exclusivity has become an increasingly exclusive commodity. A citizen of the United Arab Emirates beat the system by commissioning a car joint developed by Mercedes and Lotec called the C 1000. It features a lightweight carbon fiber body, twin-turbo 5.6L V8 producing a prodigious 1,000 horsepower, Hewkand 5-speed racing tranny and 4 Ram AP IMSA racing brakes. Performance figures are impressive with a run to 60 mph taking 3.2 seconds, 125 mph comes in 8.08 seconds and its top speed is 268 mph. No word on whether that velocity's been tested or not.
