Mosler Automotive, which has had tremendous success in the last few years of GT racing in Europe, has announced a new race series specifically for MT900 race car owners. The spec series will tag along with the Dutch Supercar Series and have 11 different events throughout Europe in 2008. In conjunction with the announcement of the new series, Mosler also launched a new model called the MT900 Challenge. Similar to Mosler's GT3 car, the Challenge features a race-spec LS7 V8 engine, carbon fiber monocoque chassis, AP Racing brakes and lightweight BBS wheels, but replaces or takes out some of the more expensive components for a base price of 150,000 Euros compared to the race car's 225,000 Euros.
