The Mosler MT 900S begins with an advanced composite monocoque assembled in Florida from carbon-aluminum honeycomb structural board produced in California by Teklam, primarily to make aircraft floors and bulkheads.

Power for the Mosler MT 900S comes in the form of an iconic American powerplant a 5.7-liter Corvette LS6 powerplant (supercharged or 7.0 versions are available) with subtle modifications from stock that drives through a 6-speed manual gearbox. Double wishbone aluminum upper and chrome-moly lower three-way adjustable coil-over shocks and adjustable blade anti-roll bars translate power to the road with all of the aggressive, road-hugging handling and performance indicative of its race car roots.

Final assembly of the car s chassis, body, internals, suspension and powertrain is completed by a team of road car specialists at Breckland Technology Ltd. in East Dereham, England. There it is transformed into a stunning example of cutting-edge automotive technology and beauty, accentuated by its low-slung, flowing lines and 19- and 20-inch aluminum wheels fitted with four-wheel vented 13-inch disc brakes.

Racing versions of the Mosler MT 900 have been making their mark for several years, winning both the British GT and Spanish GT championships, and competing successfully in FIA GT championship races. Currently several international teams from England and Spain are battling for championships with the leading Ferraris, Porsches and other leading makes.


Just in case you're too slow in the head to realize it, you're voting on the street car version ONLY.
Do not let these pictures of kickass Mosler racecars influence your vote. tongue_crossed-eyes.gif
There are merely here to visually illustrate Mosler's racing heritage.



At the mid-May RAC Tourist Trophy race at Silverstone, England, three separate Mosler entries shared the starting grid for the first time and finished second, fifth and twelfth respectively and followed that with another class win at the FIA GT race in Imola, Italy. Before being dropped from the U.S. Grand Am series, MT900s won numerous races, including the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona in the GTS class.


PBB: Every time I see the Mosler MT900, I'm reminded of the FFR GTM and how that car offers pretty much the same package for a third of the cost. But the Mosler has real racing pedigree so it still gets a Frozen. Hawt.gif

I just realized I'm NOT voting for the race car but the actual street legal car which I think is uncool.

Somebody please change my vote from cool to uncool, kthnxbai.

I like the MT900, and I respect the fact that Mr. Mostler is a sticker for efficent aerodynamics...but it looks too much like a kit car, and is priced like a supercar...so I'm afraid it gets an Un-cool from me.

Also, I think your pictures are of the bog standard MT900, the S has a different interior, different rear lights and exhaust.

Big and cool.

Just another race car for the streets with a vette motor. Yawn, MJU.

Frozen. It's just so awesome.

I'm still abstaining on this one. I have no gut feeling about its cool factor at all, and I can't arrive at such a thing through reason.

Definitely cool.
