Mosler MT900 GTR XX Twin Turbo Land Shark (2500bhp!!)

Most people know about the Mosler MT900 and it’s combination of low weight and loads of horsepower. The MT900 GTR XX is the ultimate variant of Mosler’s current model line. It celebrates the companies 20th anniversary and went on sale last month. Intense Automotive Design have received one of these exclusive cars and have immediately set about bending the laws of physics!

2500bhp is what the car promises. Yes, you read it right! This makes it the most powerful road legal car available. Two times as much as an SSC or Bugatti Veyron. We hear you ask; How is this achieved? Well, Intense Automotive Design have been kind enough to give us an insight into this amazing machine through a full detailed spec list of changes.

The most interesting change is one which has allowed the car to be registered in the US state of California as a hybrid. It runs on a mixture of petrol, methanol, hydrogen, and ethanol which apparently accounts for the huge amounts of power that the spec sheet claims. The price you pay for technology like this? For a start, the racing fuel pumps are capable of delivering six gallons (22.7 liters) per minute! So this isn’t ment for long trips!

The whole car has essentially been stripped down, and most parts replaced with one-off parts. Examples of this are the double engine management system and the various IAD engine componants. Of course, these are necessary for such a high performance machine. All these changes allow the engine to spin to 10,000rpm. Theres a huge list of componants used in the Induction/ Ignition/ Transmision, mostly made from the highest quality materials, carbon and titanium feature heavily.

Performance figures read:

0-60mph = 2.5 seconds
0-150mph = 6.7 seconds
0-250mph = 17.5 seconds
1/4 mile = 9.0 seconds
1/4 mile speed = 178mph
0 to 150mph and back to 0 = 8.7 seconds
Braking: 250mph to 0 in 8.5 seconds

It sees the limiter at 305mph because of the rear spoiler and the methanol mix, however the company claim it could be good aerodynamically for over 400mph. Essentially all we need to know is that 305mph would be the actual top speed.

Aerodynamics are another big part of what the ‘Land Shark’ does. There’s modified front splitters, dive planes, air intakes (including roof), a flat floor with air ducting, side vents and a carbon fibre spoiler. The wheels are carbon fibre with a magnesium center and titanium lug nuts. Wrapped around these are Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tires in sizes 285/35R19 PS2 for the front and 345/30R20 PS2 for the rear.

Unfortunately we will have to wait until August to see whether the company makes good on their claims. The car will be appearing at the Bonneville Speed Week where it will attempt to break records in front of the Guiness Book of Records. We have included the full spec list below the gallery…
