duPont REGISTRY's hidden gems

A few notable cars were found while browsing duPont REGISTRY’s inventory this week. The Mosler MT900S is named after Warren Mosler, the man behind the machine and owner of Mosler Automotive. Starting with a carbon fiber monocoque, the company slaps in a Corvette-derived engine which, in conjunction with the approximately 2,000 pounds of mass to move around, makes perfomance brisk; ripping to sixty in close to 3.0 seconds and on to a top speed of more than 200 mph. It seems the New Auto Toy Store out Pompano Beach, Florida, is working with the manufacturer to bring both preowned and new Moslers to the masses. Click here to see the Mosler MT900S for sale

Another notable edition is a 1999 Shelby Series I. One of 248 ever produced, the Series I was the only car ever produced by Carroll Shelby from the ground up. Utilizing a carbon fiber body and an Oldsmobile-Aurora-based 4.0-liter V-8 that makes 320 hp, the Series One is powerful enough to jet the car to sixty in less than 5 seconds.  Quick, although a faster version was also available as a supercharged option when the car was being manufactured.

The Shelby Series I lives on

Back in the mid-90s, Shelby took a legitimate swipe at building a supercar called the Shelby Series I. An asking price that nearly doubled its original $100,000 figure was brought on by high production costs. Another setback was when Shelby decided to use an Aurora-based V-8 making 320 horsepower as the standard engine.  Despite the addition of a supercharged option, many people backed out of their original deposits for the car. In all, 250 Shelby Series I roadsters left the factory.

In 2006, Shelby announced it would continue production, with revised front and rear ends and a price tag of $225,000, under the name Series II.  The Series II never came to be due to the high costs associated with re-certifying the car to the modern federal standards.

This brings us to today, where Superformance Distribution has announced it has a few Series II bodies sitting around that it will be willing to depart with. These cars but have no engines or transmissions but, with a rumor that only four are in existence, will likely be a collector’s item in the future.
