Heinz Melkus was driving teacher, designer and one of the most successful racedriver of the former German Democratic Republic. He designed and built small race cars from 1959. In 1969 the production of the Melkus RS1000 started, the only sports car ever built in the former German Democratic Republic. In 2008 the production of this sports car restarted, with old tools and old parts and a new 1.6l engine several Melkus RS1600 were built. The production of an all-new sports car, the RS2000, had begun in 2009. This lasted until 2012, when Melkus went bankrupt.
