Mosler MT900 GTR XX

For Mosler’s 20th anniversary, they announced that they will build their anniversary model, the Mosler Mt900 GTR XX. The XX is a Roman numeral symbol for 20 as in for the 20th anniversary of Mosler. They wanted to celebrate their 20th birthday with a bang and this new model will surely make such a scene. This GTR’s new version is lighter but the powertrain is still the 620 horsepower 7-liter V8 from LS7 Corvette with a 6-speed transmission. Since it’s still not out in the market and we’re all still speculating about its specs, the only thing that we can be certain of is that it can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.1 seconds and has a maximum speed of 211 mph. It weighs only about 2336 lbs and it sports a futuristic exterior that many would drool over.

It is also equipped with a KW suspension, MOVIT ceramic braking system with carbon seats and carbon clutch.

With a lighter and more powerful version of the Mosler MT900 GTR, the expectation for this car is high. Surely, as a 20th anniversary new model, this new top of the line new car will definitely gain respect.
