2500 BHP Mosler 'Land Shark'

Last month Mosler’s race-derived anniversary model, the Mosler MT900 GTR XX, went on sale boasting 600bhp in a lightweight 1111kg car. It looked to be the ultimate track day package, but design company Intense Automotive reckons it can trump that with a 2500bhp version.

Nicknamed ‘The Land Shark’, the Intense Automotive (Ed, who?) Mosler reportedly weighs just 861kg when fully loaded, 250kg lighter than the original. That’s some claim, as the stripped GTR XX also gets several fuel tanks to house its petrol, methanol, hydrogen and ethanol fuel mix.

The car’s designer, one John Gocha is claiming to have Michael Schumacher lined up for a test drive around the Nurburgring.

Gocha also intends to have the speed of the Land Shark verified by the chaps from the Guinness World Records at the Bonneville Speed Week, according to his press release. The same press release that claims the chassis can be put together by hand in 20mins... Oh, OK, we get it...

Still, we salute the effort John has put into specifying his dream car. Check it out for yourself below:

there is NO WAY that it can be possible to drive that without being killed by turning to Jelly at around 270mph!

Shocked those boys from Fl rly know what they're doing- I remember seeing a Mosler at the NY auto show back in 06. I didn't have a clue what in the world it was, so I asked the guy. Turns out they build a good race version of the Mt900 as well

Oh yes they certainly do! Wasn't allowed to compete in the FIA GT3 series!

You will find it in the British GT's this year. Awsome car.
