“Now more than Ever” – The RS 2000 sportscar of German Melkus

There’s still life and enthusiasm in the dark shaded automobile industry, even the smallest companies rather seem to rise up a “now more than ever” mentality. The German tradition car manufacture Melkus has now introduced a low, compact, and powerful competitor that participates in the street sportscar segment. “The car has to be an exciting prospect from any angle,” says Lutz F├╝gener chief of design for the German ultra exclusive sportscar, “our aim was to create a powerful yet timeless form without any modern distractions – a pure visual and technical focus on driving experience”. This explicitly reflects in the consistent lightweight construction. The RS 2000 convinces with a body made of glass and carbon fiber, and a pure aluminum chassis. The extraordinary gull-winged car further justifies its position against the Cayman or Lotus Europa with several aerodynamic clues such as the entirely closed underbody. Less than 2.000 of street craving pounds driven by a turbo charged four-cylinder engine that produces 270 horsepower and provides a claimed under 4 seconds sprint from zero to 60, are armed and ready for the asphalt.
