About Mastretta

Mastrettadesign - Tecnoidea SA de CV (or simply Mastretta) is a Mexican car maker and design studio established by Mexican engineer and designer Daniel Mastretta in Mexico City in 1987. Mastretta under Tecnoidea and Unidiseño have previously developed a small number of kit cars, the MXT is their latest product. Considered to be the first ever serial-production car completely designed and produced by Mexican engineers and designers under a Mexican car maker (of which there are very few), and only the third Mexican sports car ever, it is designed as a direct rival for the Lotus Elise.

History

During the 1990s, Mastretta focused on peseros (Mexico City metropolitan minibuses) body chassis and engineering as well as urban buses. This would lead to the construction of their first kit-car in 1998, the Unidiseño Mastretta MXA (Spanish for Onedesign). The Unidiseño Mastretta was built over a Volkswagen Sedán (Mexican VW Type 1) chassis and platform; also, the VW Boxer inline-4 was used for the prototype but with 44bhp, the car reached a top speed of 127km/h, disappointing for its aggressive coupé body. The few units almost hand-made were exported to Germany and the United States, where the kit-car marketing was attractive for many collectors at the time. Around two remain in Mexico but they're owned by Mastretta.

A variation of the same model, the MXB was built. It featured different headlights and other minor modifications.

Automóvil Panamericano car magazine's February 1998 annual edition of Modelos (Models, a special catalogue with information about every commercial model on Earth and since that year, a few pages dedicated to kit-car makers) featured a paragraph on the Unidiseño Mastretta, and since then it hadn't been heard of it.
