A new 200mph American supercar, the Mosler, could be imported and sold in Britainas soon as next year.

The MT900S uses a 435bhp 5.7-litre Corvette V8 mounted amidships and a carbonfibre monocoque to keep the dry weight down to 998kg – lighter than many superminis.

The US-spec car has been timed at ‘200mph-plus’ and claims a 0-60mph time of 3.5sec, although homologation for a European model could alter those figures.

Adjustable dampers let owners tweak the double-wishbone suspension set-up and the car rides on fat 19-inch 255/40 tyres up front and 20-inch 295/40 rubber at the rear.

Standard kit includes air-con, remote locking and electric windows. The road car costs $159,000 (£91,000).

A track-spec car, (pictured) is also available.

    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
