George Lucas Takes Delivery of First Mosler MT900S

Jay Cochran - December 27, 2006


Consulier Engineering, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSLR) announces that noted American film director, producer and screenwriter George Lucas, an avowed high-performance auto aficionado, who could buy any car on the planet, chose the car Darth Vader would drive – a stunning black-on-black Mosler MT900S from Mosler Automotive.

In mid-December at this ranch in San Rafael, California, Lucas, who created American Graffiti and the epic Star Wars saga, took delivery of the first street-legal production Mosler MT900S. He first became interested in the Mosler MT900S six months ago when his 13-year old son brought a car magazine to his office. The boy was fascinated by the car and it caught Lucas’s eye as well. After a few calls, an order was placed.

“I was drawn to its looks, its power, its use of high-tech materials, and, of course, its speed,” said Lucas, who also owns a Ferrari F360.

The filmmaker ordered his car with an all-black interior and exterior, rear wing delete option and an Alpine 12-disc CD changer/stereo with a lightweight carbon fiber subwoofer enclosure. In addition, Mosler Automotive custom fit the seats and interior to Lucas’ personal dimensions. Final sales price was $203,000.

Lucas’ car was delivered personally by Mike Vietro, owner of Mosler Mike Motorsports, the exclusive North American distributor for Mosler Automotive.

“We designed the MT900S to be the extreme performance vehicle,” said company founder Warren Mosler. “The MT900S is intended as the ultimate road-going street car for a discriminating group of enthusiasts, collectors and investors capable of appreciating its performance to the fullest.”

The Mosler MT900S utilizes lightweight carbon fiber and Kevlar (TM) composites in its body panels, floor, and door structures. The result is a 2400-pound, fully certified street car powered by a 435-hp, all-aluminum V8 that delivers class-leading performance with 0-60 in 3.1 seconds. Final assembly is completed in Riviera Beach, Florida. A stunning example of cutting-edge technology and beauty, the MT900S features 18 and 20 inch magnesium and carbon-fiber wheels (Mosler was the first to adopt carbon rims).

In third party testing, the Mosler MT900S officially set nine performance records for acceleration, braking and handling. The first MT900S road models are street legal in all 50 states and in Europe. In the USA, they are available exclusively through Mosler Mike Motorsports in Anaheim, California, 714-630-0700. In Europe the MT900S is available through Rollcentre Racing.

Mosler Automotive acquired its automotive manufacturing division from Consulier Engineering, Inc., (NASDAQ:CSLR) in April, 1990. Consulier Engineering, Inc. holds an option to repurchase the company.
