Designed to battle the best supercars in the world, the Raptor will be powered by a 7.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that develops 650 hp (485 kW / 659 PS).

Mosler has released the first details about the 2012 Raptor.

Designed to battle the best supercars in the world, the car will be powered by a 7.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that develops 650 hp (485 kW / 659 PS). While that doesn't sound terribly impressive, compared to its key rivals, the Raptor will only weigh 2,500 lbs (1,134 kg) which makes it 476 lbs (216 kg) lighter than the Pagani Huayra.

Additional information is limited, but Mosler's director of engineering told Automobile "It's going to blow your mind. It gets a massive injection of sex appeal -- in fact, I designed the nose after the face of the most beautiful, exotic woman I've ever seen."
