As a driver’s car, the most important development aim was to focus on optimizing acceleration, cornering and braking capabilities. With an overall weight of just 1050 Kg and a turbocharged, 2.0 litre engine producing 250 hp, the MXT accelerates from 0-100 Km/h in 4.9 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 260 Km/h. The high-performance chassis can generate lateral acceleration of up to 1.1 G, making exceptional cornering speeds possible, while the fadeless braking system, which consists of 300 mm cross-drilled discs with 4 piston calipers front and rear, provides outstanding stopping power.
But despite its remarkable performance, the MXT is not intended to be a hard-core track day special that maximizes speed but offers no practicality. Thus, the car is very well suited for long-distance road driving, oriented towards spirited drivers who seek an exhilarating drive. Benefiting from light weight, low center of gravity and relatively long wheelbase, the chassis offers a fine balance between ride and handling. Despite its agility and power, it is easy to control even at the limit of grip.
