The Melkus brand was the brainchild of an East German racing driver, Heinz Melkus who started his experiment by making racing cars, first in 1959. Using available engines of Trabant and Wartburg, Heinz Melkus modified cars in Dresden (East Germany) and competed in races along with Western European brands. His two sons continue to keep the legacy of the Melkus brand.
The Melkus RS 2000 is a development over the earlier made RS 1000 and introduced first in 2009. This car with gull-wing doors has a powerful 300 hp and can accelerate up to 300 km/hr.
At the 2010 DMV TCC Nürburgring race, Sepp Melkus (grandson of Heinz Melkus) and Christian Vogler drove this car.
