The Mexican built Mastretta MXT will make its world debut at the British International Motor Show in London. Bristling with design flair, the all-new Mastretta MXT will put Mexico on the sportscar map.

The lightweight two-seater weighs just 1980 lb. And with top speed of 150mph, it is aimed at thrill seekers who also have an eye to the environment but want to enjoy driving.The Mastretta MXT is the first car to be designed and built in Mexico. This unique, rear-wheel drive two-seater uses a 2.0 liter turbocharged Ford Duratec engine developing nearly 240hp. It pushes the car to 60mph from rest in less than 5sec.

Constructed from bonded aluminum, the semi-monocoque chassis features aircraft-style technology. Closed mold techniques sculpt the distinctive body from high quality fiberglass and the air-conditioned interior is leather-trimmed.

Direct racecar feel comes through rack and pinion steering - 2.8 turns lock to lock. And 293mm ventilated brake discs with ABS slow the car with eye-popping power. Mastretta MXT has double wishbone suspension front and rear.National pride as well as burning ambition for their new car motivates the Mastretta brothers, who have taken the car from idea through concept to reality.

"We needed to create a great car because Mexico has no tradition of sophisticated sportscar manufacturing," says designer Daniel Mastretta. "It is most important that our customers are delighted by the new MXT. That's what we aimed to do from the first drawing of the car, but we also want to make our country proud of the MXT and show the world what we can do."
