In case 838 horsepower isn’t sufficient, the video also mentions a 1,200-horsepower CubeyGTR upgrade package that will set you back another $70,000 on top of the RaptorGTR’s $700,000 price of admission. Only 12 CubeyGTR’s are to be built, and each will also wear a front end inspired by singer Abby Cubey’s eyes. Really.
Now comes word from the duPont Registry that the RaptorGTR featured in the video isn’t a Mosler car at all; instead, it was built by Mosler distributor Supercar Engineering, Inc. (SEI). SEI, it seems, is run by former Mosler engineer J. Todd Wagner, who used to be married to Mosler’s general manager and VP of operations, Jill Wagner.
As you’d expect, there’s litigation involved, too. Wagner is suing Mosler for libel, and can’t discuss the case pending its outcome. Mosler isn’t talking about it, either, except to say that the car in the video isn’t a Mosler.
Whatever it is, the GTR is built from a Mosler MT900 owned by Wagner. It makes 838 horsepower from its twin-turbo 7.0-liter V-8, which is good enough to get the 2,600 pound carbon-fiber rocket sled from 0 to 60 in 2.6 seconds, on its way to a claimed top speed of 240 miles per hour.
That’s fast, but not fast enough to escape the soap opera the surrounds the car. We’ll keep you posted if anything comes out of it.
