The Ugliest Untitled Car Ever

by on Jul.09, 2013, under Car Accessories, Formula1, Fun

Of all the things cars should be, having looks which are at least worth looking at is a must.  A cars body if not even worthy of a glimpse means a very low sale of the car. Same is the story of the car made in 1985 by Mosler. It is also known as Consulier GTP. Only hundred of cars were ever made. That also was within a large span of eight years from 1985 to 1993. This car in blunt words is probably the ugliest car ever made. Everything about this car from the glasshouse, the haggard bin accessories to the weirdly shaped silhouette say “Do not look at me and definitely do not buy me.”
Strong car inside
This exteriorly yucky car holds a super cool, strong and impressive interior.
This car even though being so ugly has been a topic of intrigue and probing by die-hard car enthusiasts. What they discovered stunned them.
The car is light as can be according to its era. It has a Chrysler 2.2 litre tuned turbo engine having four cylinders. The chassis is a monocoque carbon-fiber built by Mosler. The body panels of the car consist of both Kevlar and CF.
The first in car production of that time. All this has made this car one of the fastest of its era.
This car had such speed that the company owner challenged anyone to run any other car at a time better that the Consulier at the One Lap America. No one ever won that challenge and due to the cars dominance it was banned from the race league.
The Gist
In today’s world this car should cost more than ten thousand dollars. But that is true only if one is completely willing t ignore the fact that it looks hideous. This car is all about the inner beauty trounces outer ugliness.
