The Mosler Land Shark, correctly called the Mosler MT900 GTR XX Twin Turbo Land Shark, is a Mosler MT900-based, custom-built hypercar.

Description

The Mosler MT900 GTR XX Twin Turbo Land Shark made its official debut at the 2009 Bonneville Speed Week.

The Mosler Land Shark weighs only 1898 lb (861 kg) and is powered by a 6.2L (381 cu in) engine V8 that delivers 2500 hp (1864 kW) and a torque output estimated at 1844 ft·lb (2500 N·m). The V8, sourced from Chevrolet, is equipped with twin turbochargers. The resulting power-to-weight ratios are 2,903 hp per tonne and 1.32 lb/0.60 kg per hp.

The Land Shark can sprint from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in just 2.5 seconds and hits the 150 mph (241 km/h) mark just 4.2 seconds later. In the end, thanks to a 90 lb (41 kg) Trentek chassis, the extensive engine tuning, and body modifications, the car has an actual top speed of over 305 mph (491 km/h).

The Mosler Land Shark's engine contains twin carbon fiber fuel cells for gas and methane, making it a multi-fuel engine and, consequently, making the car a "hybrid" hypercar in the sense that it can be driven in California's carpool lanes that normally accommodate other hybrid cars.

Summary

The Mosler Land Shark was added in the Championship Update.

The Mosler Land Shark has the second-highest starting rank of any car in the game, with 1644; it also has a MAX rank of 1737, and a MAX+PRO rank of 1800. As an Elite Car, it can be uptuned to 1808. A Tuning Kit adds 23 points, giving it a legitimate maximum of 1831. The Land Shark's rivals are the TRION NEMESIS and W Motors Fenyr Supersport. It may also be able to rival the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV in some occassions.

Performance

The Land Shark is basically the fastest Mosler car in the game, combining traits from both the GT3 and Super GT: the former's excellent acceleration (it's rate of acceleration is faster than the Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid's, W Motors Fenyr Supersport's, Arash AF10's and Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV's (the latter car's acceleration is on par with the Super GT's acceleration) and roughly similar to either the Aston Martin Vulcan's or the Weber Faster One's rate of acceleration) and nitro efficiency (5/10/15); and the latter's excellent speed and handling.

Official review

This is the official review of the Mosler Land Shark on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by Elite_HectorX and published on December 26, 2016:

Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 7.161s

Perfect nitro duration: 10.692s

Triple nitro duration: 6.831s

French Guiana lap time: 55.110s

Final verdict: "Mosler Land Shark can achieve 55.110 seconds in French Guiana. It is just 0.1 seconds slower than the TRION NEMESIS, whose acceleration is still the best in the game. But Land Shark has a slightly higher top speed and especially a better nitro duration. As result this car is one of the best S Class cars in the game. Besides that, it is easier to make PRO than the TRION, since Mosler only requires 28 forced induction V8 cards."

Usage

The Mosler Land Shark can be seen as a cheaper, Elite alternative to the TRION NEMESIS. While the NEMESIS is slightly superior over the Land Shark on most tracks, the Land Shark still is more cost-effective, being cheaper to purchase and upgrade.

Price

The Mosler Land Shark costs A8Credits 3,750,000 or A8Tokens 17,825 to purchase, making it the most expensive token-purchasable car in the game, topping the Renault Sport R.S. 01's A8Credits 3,500,000 or A8Tokens 16,625.
