(from Mosler Press Release)  Mosler Automotive today announced that its revolutionary Mosler MT 900S supercar has successfully completed U.S. emissions and crash testing, including California Air Resources Board (CARB) certification, and will be coming to an auto enthusiast near you by the end of 2005.

Conceived and created by automotive entrepreneur and financier Warren Mosler, the Mosler MT 900S is a 435-hp, Corvette-powered, ultra-high performance two-seat, mid-engined road car, with aggressively styled bodywork and race car heritage.

The Mosler MT 900S is an exotic road car with a truly international pedigree, says creator Warren Mosler. Now that it has passed its testing phase, it will be built in very limited numbers for a discriminating coterie of racers, collectors and investors.

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 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.

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.

By the end of 2005, the first 50-state legal road models will be available exclusively through one of North America s premier Corvette specialist dealers, Corvette Mike Vietro, (www.corvettemike.com), whose facility in Anaheim, California heads the U.S. distribution and sales efforts for the $189,000 Mosler MT 900S.
