Auction Spotlight: 2004 Mosler MT900S NLS6 Gullwing Coupe
Based in Riviera Beach, Florida, Mosler Automotive is one of the world’s premiere specialty sports car manufacturers. With several years of development, including two years of on track racing, the MT900s design was finalized in 2004. Weighing in as low as 2,275 pounds plus fuel, and with power from a mid-mounted 450 HP Corvette LS6 engine, the ultra light weight, high performance Mosler MT900S set new performance and fuel efficiency standards.
Finished in Titanium with black accents and gray Alcantara leather and cloth interior, the MT900S is ultimate expression of a race car for the street. With 6-speed Getrag G50 manual transmission, limited slip differential and 6-piston brakes front and rear, this example weighs in at just 2450 pounds.
Derivatives of this model regularly compete in prestigious events such as the Dutch Supercar Challenge and Japanese Super GT series. The primary structure of the MT900 is provided by a carbon fiber monocoque, supplemented by chrome-moly tubular subframes. This structure houses the passenger cabin and packages with it an advanced suspension layout.
With zero to 60 times in well under four seconds and road hugging performance, the particular example shown here is brand new, with just test mileage on the odometer. The state of the art sports car will go to auction next month at Dana Mecum’s Original Spring Classic Auction, May 17 through 22, at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, Indiana.
With its scissor doors, few cars in the world would turn more heads and the opportunity to make it yours is coming up. The 24th edition of this Mecum event is being promoted as The World’s Largest Collector Car Auction, now expanded to six days of action, offering up to 2,000 cars. You can expect to see the MT990S hit the auction floor on Saturday, around 5:15 p.m. local time.
