March 15th, 2014 by Road Test TV
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.
