Mosler Raptor GTR: 838 Horsepower, Leopard Skin, And Cleavage

Posted in Bizarre, Rants & Raves, Supercars, Videos by Kurt Ernst | November 18th, 2011 | 3 Responses |

The Mosler Raptor GTR packs 838-horsepower into its 2,580 pound frame, which gives it a horsepower-to-weight ratio some 36-percent better than a Bugatti Veyron. That’s enough to launch the Raptor from 0 to 60 in 2.6 seconds, and we’re guessing the car will easily break the 200 mph barrier. If that’s not fast enough for you, Mosler will also build a 1,212 horsepower Raptor GTR, but only in a special “Abby Cubey Edition.”

Just in case that’s not weird enough for you, since we have no idea what a pseudo-obscure singer-songwriter has to do with a carbon-fiber supercar, check out the video below, found on Autoblog. Trust us on this – it pegs the weird-o-meter, and Cubey’s singing resembles the velvet notes of, say, Yoko Ono. It’s bad in a floss-your-brain-out-afterward kind of way, but on the plus side, there’s lots of cleavage and carbon-fiber. Enjoy.

    ugh, from the description, I muted it form the start. Then I saw it..and I stopped halfway.

    The composition was written by Abby Cubey, Paul Drago, Omar Rojaz and Amber Nicole Irish and is a Paul Drago/Omar Rojaz Production or JOJOKID Music. The song and video were released on CDBaby , iTunes and other download sites.

    When we were recording the song, I thought it would be cool to have a car sound it in. I searched the internet for that. I invited Todd over and he suggested that we use the real Raptor car sound. So at 2:00 AM, in the street, waking up the neighbors, Amber and I recorded the actual sounds of the car and I we mixed them right in to the recording. So the turbo you hear is the real thing.
