Thumbs up Ford Focus ST-powered Mastretta MXT

Source: Autoblog

Mastretta is reportedly on the verge of pulling back the covers on its latest creation, the MXT-R, at the Autosport International Racing Car Show. According to Autocar, the Mexican sports car will make use of the 2.0-liter Ecoboost four-cylinder engine lifted from the Ford Focus ST. Tuned to around 285 horsepower, the engine should have no trouble hustling the lightweight MXT-R around a track. Judging from the available photos, the MXT-R will also use the aerodynamic package employed by Mastretta's race car.

Technically, the MXT-R will be used as a development vehicle, though Autocar says customers interested in laying down their hard-earned cash for the car can register at the show booth for more information. Details on performance figures are still missing at the moment, and Mastretta hasn't given the world any notion of how much the MXT-R will cost if it gets built. Of course, that isn't stopping us from wanting to get behind the wheel for a spell...

For me the car is great but they need to improve the interior that looks cheap and boring.

Looks like a VX220 and a Sky had a baby. Looks like it could be an incredible car to drive though.

And I don't mind the interior except for the placement/tilt (or lack thereof) of that screen in the center console.... Hopefully that's just typical prototype idiosyncrasy though.
