Mosler MT900 v McLaren SLR 1/4 mile Drag Race

Mosler MT900 v McLaren SLR 1/4 mile Drag Race

The crew at Road Test TV was lucky enough to capture two (2) rare supercars going head to head at Palm Beach International Raceway’s drag strip – a McLaren SLR and a Mosler MT900. Since the Mosler MT900 is not very well known, we’ll give you a little background.

The Mosler is a rare supercar that has lead a strange lfe. Mosler Automotive was an American supercar manufacturer based in Riviera Beach, Florida which was founded by Warren Mosler in 1985. Unfortunately, due to production and sales issues, Mosler closed its doors in 2011 after producing a few amazing supercars.

The Mosler MT900 was based on a Corvette infrastructure and utilized Corvette C5 and C6 drive-line components, including the Corvette LS V8 motor (LS1, LS6 and LS7 depending upon the model). The goal of Mosler was an incredible power to weight ratio: hence the production goal of a 2200 lb curb weight (keep in mind that a production Corvette weighs approximately 3500 lbs). The original Mosler MT900 was introduced in 2001 and last the MT900S finished production in May 2011. Our research has revealed that only 35 road going Mosler MT900’s were built during the entire 10 year production run.

The challenger in the video is a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. The SLR was jointly developed by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren Automotive. The McLaren SLR Mercedes is powered by a 617 horsepower supercharged 5.4 liter Mercedes AMG based V8 and was built at McLaren’s Technology Centre in Surrey, England.

Watch the video to see who wins – Enjoy!

    I watched this guy in the Mosler he has no respect for his car putting his
    feet on the car to tie his shoes, sitting on his car and eating off it and
    leaving his beer bottles on it. I guess after I left he finally learned how
    to do somewhat of a good launch ptobably from actually doing a burnout by
    finally driving through the burnout puddle.

    The MT900 can go quicker than that, coz the MT900 lose traction at start
    and still 120mph pass

    What a huge disappointment that Mosler looks like a Prototype car you see
    racing at the le mans series. I thought that thing would of killed that
    SLR.

    I don’t care if it’s rare, it has an LS7 which is cheap to mod and fix. I
    would drive the dog shit out of that Mosler. That driver is a pussy.

    so so so many “special super cars” use the same V8 engine from GM LS the
    sound is boring and it only fits in a corvette not in anyother car imo. Yes
    i know it’s cheap compare to a BMW V12 or something like that but it’s lame
    when some cars have the LS engine and the price tag is 1.000.000 dollars
    and above:P

    I’m the one who drove the Mosler MT900, I have no racing experience, my
    apologies to fans of American cars. I had to start in second gear just
    because first was to much and even in 2nd was still not enough traction,
    mercedes win but I think the mosler with a good driver can win easy. This
    car is made for track racing not drag racing. I would like to see that race
    in a track against the SLR.

    Plz don’t tell me the “mos” has traction control bcuz it sure looks like
    some power was subtracted from the launch (bogg). They didn’t show if it
    did a burn out but it should have at least screeched the tires threw first
    gear

    +altimgamr molser passion was to create a mid engine corvette, but still
    leaving the traditional RWD, manuel car, no traction control, just light
    weight car, so its technically a regular c5 corvette midengine style,
    mosler should’ve used the CERV 3 corvette concept where its AWD, twinturbo
    automatic, you should look this car up its mad fast for its era! (CERV 3)
    and you do know that Venom Gt used an Ls9 v8 block
