Startup Mexican manufacturer Mastretta brought its new sports car to the Los Angeles Auto Show, in anticipation of beginning sales in the U.S.
Mexican automaker Mastretta began production of the MXT sports car this year, bringing it to the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show to introduce it to the U.S. The company only plans on building 150 cars per year, with a price per car of $55,000 to $60,000.
The MXT is similar to sports cars built by Lotus, in that it is very light, weighing only 2,050 pounds, and is designed for rigidity. Those factors, and its short wheelbase, should lead to excellent handling.
