Mosler MT900S at Festivals of Speed, Amelia Island

Mosler MT900 S Festivals of Speed Amelia Island 3

This rare bird caught my eye right away when I arrived at Festivals of Speed, Amelia Island, and not just because it was bright flaming orange. It’s a Mosler MT900S, an American supercar of which only around 35 road-going examples exist.

Mosler went bankrupt a few years back, but their US-bred supercars are well respected and sought after in the car community. These were genuinely racing cars for the street, hardcore performance machines to the bone. In fact, Mosler built more MT900 racecars than they did roadcars.

The MT900S was built from 2005 to 2011, and featured 5.7L or 7.0L V8 engines sourced from General Motors (ie the Corvette). I’m not sure which motor this orange MT900S had in it, but Car and Driver had an MT900S test car with a 600hp supercharged 5.7L V8. In their testing it ran 0-60 mph in just 3.1 sec, 0-100 mph in 6.5 sec, and did the 1/4 mile in 11.o sec @ 135 mph. Now that’s a decent kick in the ass, I don’t care who you are.

This Mosler was orange, and it was awesome. Enjoy the pics!
