The unveiling of the Melkus RS 2000 comes 30 years after the last Melkus RS 1000 model was manufactured in Dresden, in the former East Germany. Production of the entirely handmade car will be limited to 25 vehicles per year. Like its predecessor, the RS 2000 is designed as a lightweight sports car with race-car technology. Melkus Sportwagen company was started in 1950. Its executive director is now Sepp Melkus, the grandson of German race-car legend and company founder Heinz Melkus. The interior design is specially appointed for each customer with two-tone leather décor. "Each customer will be individually attended to personally by the Melkus family," the company says.
