Mastretta is reportedly on the verge of pulling back the covers on its latest creation, the MXT-R, at the Autosport International Racing Car Show. According to Autocar, the Mexican sports car will make use of the 2.0-liter Ecoboost four-cylinder engine lifted from the Ford Focus ST. Tuned to around 285 horsepower, the engine should have no trouble hustling the lightweight MXT-R around a track. Judging from the available photos, the MXT-R will also use the aerodynamic package employed by Mastretta's race car.

Technically, the MXT-R will be used as a development vehicle, though Autocar says customers interested in laying down their hard-earned cash for the car can register at the show booth for more information. Details on performance figures are still missing at the moment, and Mastretta hasn't given the world any notion of how much the MXT-R will cost if it gets built. Of course, that isn't stopping us from wanting to get behind the wheel for a spell...

      Cool. I'm surprised I like it. Kinda has a Ferrari meets Lotus look to it. Not a bad mix if you ask me...

      I like that little car. I saw one at the 2011 LA Auto Show, and it looked great. Can't say I've driven one, though.

      If they can't federalize it, will they sell it as kit car?

      This car's prominent, gaping, center mounted exhaust gives me a bulging, throbbing erection.

        ...seriously. I haven't felt this way since the first Boxster. That old philly has been rode hard and put away wet... but this new metal is a ripe succulent orange dream.

      And its only slightly more hideous than the Focus ST.

      I'm really not understanding what i'm looking at. Yeah, i know, it is too easy to be shallow and be an armchair designer and judge the car a knee-jerk visual failure. I really want to like efforts like this, it seems the philosophy is sound... but the details just don't harmonize.
