The Mosler MT900
The Greatest Supercar You've Never Heard Of
Mosler Automotive started life as Consulier Industries way back in 1985. The company, founded by hedge fund manager Warren Mosler, produced the Consulier GTP, which was later rebranded the Mosler Intruder – then updated as the Mosler Raptor. The car was so successful in IMSA racing that it was saddled with a 300-pound weight penalty, and subsequently banned completely in 1991.
Mosler went on to design the MT900 with Rod Trenne, who’d worked on the Corvette C5. The name was derived from a combination of Mosler, Trenne, and the car’s targeted 900 kg curb weight. The MT900 featured a carbon-fiber chassis and an LS6 V8. The basic car was updated as the street-legal MT900S and the race version MT900R. Between 2001 and 2011, approximately 35 street cars and 50 racing cars were produced. Filmmaker George Lucas took delivery of the first MT900S. Mosler was bought out by RP High Performance in 2013. RP merged their existing facilities with Mosler’s to create Rossion.
