Special German maker Melkus Sportwagen GmbH will introduce their new lightweight sport coupes at the Top Marques show in Monaco.

Weighing only 2145lbs, the RS2000 GT and GTS are variants of the lightweight coupe and are both fitted with 2.0L turbocharged four-bangers that come from a “well-known German manufacturer,” as Melkus said. The top-of-the-line GTS comes with 345hp and is capable of a 0-60 time in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph. The regular GT comes with 296hp and is capable of a 0-60 time in 4.5 seconds.

Both the GT and the GTS come with adjustable shocks and AP performance brakes. The body is primarily made of carbon-fiber to keep the weight down and an aerodynamic kit, complete with a front spoiler, a rear wing, rear diffuser, and side air guides also make sure the RS2000s stay slippery through the air.
