Rare Mosler MT 900 Battles SLR McLaren on the Strip

Quarter Mile

Two legendary supercars duke it out for quarter-mile bragging rights.

One of just 35 ever made, the carbon-fiber clad Mosler MT 900 comes powered by a LS7-derived 7.0-liter V8 engine, while the SLR McLaren Roadster has a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 rated at 617 horsepower. Seldom are these cars seen on the drag strip, so it’s a rare treat to watch them compete against each other on the quarter-mile. Both finish the 1320-foot stretch travelling at 120 mph, but at 11.62 seconds the SLR McLaren is a fair bit in front of the Mosler who labors to a time of 12.38 secs.

The drivers are understandably not going flat out. Nonetheless, it’s wonderful to see these rare exotics in action.
