Mosler's MT900 Series Goes Beserk: The MT900 GTR XX

The Mosler MT900 GTR-XX, released as a Europe-only model to commemorate the American super sports car manufacturer's 20th anniversary, is equipped with the supreme performance specs that bring the MT900 GTR series into rare air among the supercars of the world.

Mosler has taken great strides to save weight with the MT900 GTR-XX, which carries a curb weight of only 2450 pounds. With 600 horsepower on tap, this translates to performance numbers rarely seen south of Bugatti. With "Lambo" doors and styling representing a Corvette in its Sunday best, on steriods, the MT900 GTR-XX is destined to grace the wall calendars of many supercar fanatics worldwide.

But looks and straight-line top speed aren't the only advantages the MT900 GTR-XX, priced at well over $300,000 equivalent USD, offers its driver. Mosler promises a skidpad figure of at least 1.1g for this greatest of MT900 special editions, translating into balanced and razor-sharp handling on the road and on the track.

American national sports car buyers won't be getting a crack at the Mosler MT900 GTR-XX, but the 50-state legal 2008 MT900S offers most of the same performance features, and retails for $329,000.






MOSLER AUTOMOTIVE CELEBRATES 20th Anniversary

One of the World's Most Unique Supercar Manufacturers Commemorates its 20th Year of Dominating Performance with the New MT900 GTR-XX European Model

Riviera Beach Fla. (June 2008) - Mosler Automotive announces the first delivery of its 20th anniversary model, the MT900 GTR XX, to German distributor Christof Flugel. The new MT900 GTR XX continues the legacy established by founder Warren Mosler with the company's first U.S. street-legal, high performance sports car, the Consulier GTP. First delivered in April 1988, the Consulier GTP quickly gained recognition among race fans, with a racing version winning pole position in the June 1988 annual 24 hour race at Nelson Ledges, Ohio.

In 1988 Mosler Automotive was the first manufacturer to utilize advance composite construction for primary structures of the U.S. street-legal vehicle. The result was a ground breaking, high performance sports car that weighed over 1000 pounds less then its competitors, enabling it to out perform its competition by large margins, return 28 miles per gallon on the highway, and provide superior driver protection in rollover, side impact, and crush testing. Mosler's latest European road car, the MT900 GTR XX, carries on the tradition of utilizing advanced composites for primary structure for light weight, safety and extreme performance with its 7 liter, 600 hp alloy V8.

"Total performance is everything," says Warren Mosler. "In a 2003 Motor Trend event, an early MT900 with only 400 hp officially set 9 performance records, including 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds and 1.06g's on the skid pad. The new MT900 GTR XX with 600 hp will be tested in Europe before year end."

The Mosler MT900R race vehicles begin life as a road car with subsequent modification for compliance with the racing sanctioning organizations. Over the years the MT900R has built an impressive list of international motorsports achievements, including winning overall championships in British and Spanish GT series and numerous individual victories including the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, the prestigious International GT Open in Valencia, Spain, and the SPA 1000k.

Simultaneously, the extreme performance US road model, the MT900S, attracted numerous automotive enthusiasts - including the noted film director, producer and screenwriter George Lucas, who owns the first production MT900S.

The company's street-legal and race ready Mosler MT900's feature superior power to weight ratios for superior total performance and fuel efficiency. Utilizing an advanced composite carbon fiber monocoque and Kevlar® construction, the MT900 GTR-XX weighs only 2450 pounds, allowing the driver to brake deeper, carry higher speeds into and through the corners, and accelerate harder. Double-wishbone chromoly upper and lower control arms, adjustable coil-over shocks and adjustable blade anti-roll bars work together to keep the MT900 GTR XX glued to the road with over 1.1g capability on street tires. Combined with the 7 liter 600 hp alloy V8 and 6 speed transaxle, the Mosler is an unparalleled state-of-the-art supercar.

"As we enter our 20th year, Mosler Automotive continues to embrace the fundamentals of performance technology" explains Mosler.
