It’s no secret that Mosler’s range of extreme sports cars only caters to a certain demographic of people. Either you’re the hardcore racer type or you have far deeper pockets than the average Joe, that’s the market for these insane Moslers.
So what happens when Mosler decides to release a new and lightweight version of the mighty MT900? Time to break the bank, fellas.
The MT900SP will only be limited to 1 unit per year and is being promoted as an extreme 2 seat, mid-engined, air conditioned, rear-wheel drive sports car that’s capable of blowing just about any other car it lines up against. The MT900SP features a composite chassis and plenty of carbon fiber body panels that drastically shaves off some weight on the car, resulting in a car that weighs well under 2,500 lbs or around 1,140 kg.
All that however still plays a back seat to the unquestioned draw of the MT900SP: the 7.0-liter V8 engine. This monstrous powertrain is capable of producing 535 horsepower while mated to a six-speed Getrag transmission. Those figures translate to a 0-60 mph time of just under three seconds with a quarter-mile time of sub-11 seconds and a top speed of over 200 mph.
For all of that automotive goodness contained in one package, the MT900SP will remain a niche sports car for an exclusive consumer base, all because interested buyers will have to fork over $479,000 for the privilege of owning one.
