More power, less weight. That's what we like to hear, and Florida-based supercar-maker Mosler has answered the call with its new MT900 GTR XX. Based on the MT900 GTR, which itself is as barely legal as the Olsen twins, the XX spec packs an extra 20 horsepower and loses 150kg in dead weight.

To trim the fat, Mosler fitted a new six-speed sequential transmission weighing 10kg less than the "conventional" version, installed a titanium exhaust system that weighs 5.5kg less than the steel tubes, replaced the brakes with aluminum brake calipers and carbon-ceramic discs, reworked the carbon-fiber body panels, developed seats that weight 4kg less apiece and cut 5kg out of the air-con. The Richard Simmons weight loss program further unburdens the 620-hp 7.0L Corvette LS7 V8 to bring the sprint to 100km/h (62mph) down to three seconds flat, and 200km/h (124mph) down to 8.7 seconds. If that sounds bonkers already, consider the rumors that Mosler is working on a twin-turbo version for the future, which is looking brighter and faster by the day.

      Moslers aren't pretty by any stretch of the imagination, but they sure haul ass.

      It's so skeletal now that it's kinda starting to lose its style. It just looks like a Radical or an Ultima GTR now.

      I'm sure it's well worth it for the performance, but as someone who only gets to look at these cars, not drive them, it's kinda sad.

      Rumors of a twin turbo version.... Didn't they show a twin turbo version at the LA Auto show.

      Some has to have seen the uncanny resemblance. It reeks Corvette in styling, all over.

        That's because it uses a bunch of Corvette components. The taillights are obvious, and a look at the interior (not shown in this article) reveals many Corvette bits, as well.

        You should see the older ones, they're even more similar.

        Moslers are modified Corvettes. They move the engine to behind the driver. They keep the interior though.

      How many of the regular version have they actually made? Last time I looked at their numbers, they had made all of something like 5 of them, so a special edition seems kind of funny to me.

        I'm sure they sell more cars to racing teams rather than to individuals for personal use.
