Mastretta MXT

Mastretta MXT

The Mastretta MXT is a Mexican sports car that has been in production for the last three years (it started production back on January 1, 2011). It is one of the very few vehicles that is both produced in Mexico and is also headquartered and based out of Mexico as well. Most other vehicles that are at least partially build in Mexico are designed and headquartered elsewhere in the world.

The vehicle itself is a sports coupe and has been around, in different forms, since the middle 2000s. It started more as a modified and upgraded Volkswagen, although Mastretta started to construct the vehicle on its own and eventually revealed the initial Mastretta MXT at the British International Motor Show in 2008.

The vehicle itself, despite designed as a sports car, has a smaller engine than what a traditional vehicle might have in the same category. This is all due to the original design off of the Volkswagen. Currently, the two-door mid engine coupe uses a four cylinder engine with an EFI turbo compressor and intercooler. The maximum power is 250 horsepower and 250 pound feet of torque. It is a rear wheel drive vehicle that comes with a manual five speed gearbox.

In terms of speed and performance, the vehicle is able to top off at 162 miles per hour, as declared by the factory. It can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds or 0 to 100 kilometers an hour in 4.9 seconds. The quarter mile drag time is performed in 13 seconds. While the vehicle does have some nice, while not overpowering engine performance numbers, it is all rather high for a four cylinder engine, which is what makes it so desirable. In fact, the fuel economy is one of the best options out there on the market. It is able to average 35.1 miles per gallon over the city and highway.

The vehicle comes standard with bucket seats, Hella xenon headlines, anti lock brakes and an SRS airbag system. Inside, the vehicle features an LCD display along with an MP3 player and CD player in terms of the entertainment. It also comes standard with automatic climate control. The vehicle also is designed to surpass the European Union safety standards, which are higher than what is found in the United States in terms of city driving, due to the closed quarter driving that is often done throughout the continent.
