Mosler MT900 and Consulier GTP! Supercars Ahead of Their Time - The Downshift Ep. 58
In 1985 one of the most groundbreaking designs in automotive history went into production - the Consulier GTP, the first production car with no structural metal. Weighing in at 1900lbs and using only a turbocharged 2.2 liter Chrysler engine with 175hp, the GTP ran circles around most sport cars of the time which prompted the company to take it racing. With over 1g of grip on the skidpad from the factory, the GTP was in it's element on the racetrack, so much so, they were asked not to return to many of the racing series that they entered after numerous uncontested victories. Bad press and no compromise race-bred styling led to slow sales. Several redesigns based on the original GTP where made, which included the Intruder and the Raptor with it's famous V shaped windshield to reduce drag. In 2001, Mosler introduced the MT900. The MT900 followed in the footsteps of the GTP as it was a no compromise race-bred road car. With it's carbon fiber chassis and 350hp LS1, it accelerated to 60mph in 3.5 seconds and ran the quarter mile in 12.0 seconds. Several iterations of the MT900 were made over the years, including the Photon which boasted improved performance and set 9 performance records at the time of testing with Motor Trend. The Downshift appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/1018679678590...

Also go to http://VeritasMovieStudio.com. Time and technical difficulties prevented timed runs in both directions at El Mirage. Next year Keating expects to bring the car from England once again, but this time to Bonneville, a longer track. The car clearly has much more speed waiting to be unleached. Only about half of the power of the Nelson Racing Engine's motor was used for this 260 MPH run.
