Default Mexican Supercar: Mastretta MXT

Details:

"Built on a rear-wheel drive platform, the Mastretta is powered by a Ford-sourced 2.0L four-cylinder. Thanks to a turbocharger, the MXT’s powerplant produces a healthy 240 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. "

"Thanks to extensive use of aluminum and other light-weight materials, the MXT tips the scales at just under 2,000 pounds. The MXT’s combination light weight and turbocharged power is said to result in a 0-60 time in the four second range, with a top speed of 150 mph. "

"The MXT will hit the UK market next year with a price tag of £32,999, but supplies will be extremely limited. The MXT’s initial production run is pegged at just 80 units."

I think it's safe to say that this is Mexico's version of the Lotus Elise.

Looks like a DC mod, not too crazy about the looks, and a ford engine?

Sorry for the second post, but that is NOT a supercar, 4cyl, 2L ford engine, hardly qualifies it as one.
