Special Mosler MT900 intends to set a new speed record at the Nardo Ring
If you thought that the Devon GTX was the only low production hand made American super car setting records then you might want look under the M section of your automotive dictionary. That is because the Riviera Beach based Mosler Automotive company has been making mid engine race cars around the best V8s that Chevrolet has to offer and then also sells them as street cars.
One thing that every Mosler has been built to do since 1993 is go around a track as quickly as possible, and the U.K. Racing Team is preparing a very special Mosler MT900 in order to do just that, except the circuit they are going to is like none other in the world. That is because Italy’s Nardo Ring is a high speed test track consisting of a 7.8 mile long banked circle sitting on the heel of the nation’s boot. The U.K. based technicians have already begun preparations by ensuring that they will be able to get the required 1000 HP from a 427 cubic inch LS7 borrowed from the Corvette Z06. The next step is to get the car and driver (Michelangelo Larosa) package as close to 1000 pounds as possible, however aerodynamics might play a bigger role than they think to best the special edition Mercedes C111’s 403.978 km/h record set back in 1979. However we are still waiting for the date.
