Specialists in composite automotive construction with decades of composite materials experience, American supercar manufacturer Mosler Automotive which has been developing extraordinary street and racing machines with a principle focus on lightweight technologies, has now come up with its latest supercar, the 2012 Mosler RaptorGTR. Both light-weight and powerful, netting the highest power-to-weight ratio of 649hp/ton of any factory street racer ever produced, including the Bugatti Veyron and Lamborghini Aventador, this all-American supercar, is notably just the only example manufactured, and is for sale at a price of $700,000. The 838-hp Mosler RaptorGTR touches 0-60 mph in just a whip of 2.6 seconds, with a top speed of 240 mph.
Described to be the pinnacle of the Mosler’s street and racing development, the RaptorGTR combines the proven, extensively crash-tested, and LeMans prototype-style ultralight construction chassis with a truly unrivaled powerplant with visible twin turbos. And, the turbos behind the powerful 7.0-liter forged V8 engine produces a fighter-jet like soundtrack above 4000rpm, which is truly incredible.
Originally, the RaptorGTR was intended to be the next model to extend the Mosler line, but due to unfortunate circumstances under which Mosler was pulled into the vortex of the financial downturn and only produced one of its example.
Speaking about the supercars, we have seen some of the other finest like the Rimac Concept One electric supercar produced by Croatian automotive startup Rimac Automobili, the McLaren P1 'ultimate supercar' which aims to be the best driver’s car in the world on road and track, the Lamborghini-esque styled 2013 Arrinera Supercar which is a Polish supercar that is the closest thing a Batman fan will drive to the Batmobile, and the $370,000 Slovenian Supercar Tushek Renovatio T500, and the 2013 McLaren MP4-12C Spider which sells for $302,830.
