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.

Car Insurance Comparison – Why It is Important

Knowing what to look for when making a car insurance comparison is getting to be more important all of the time. Most, if not all states require motorists to have some level of auto insurance.

But now, states like Mississippi that do not have insurance databases are going to have them, and there must be proof of insurance before the automobile can get its tags renewed. According to the Jackson Free Press, the Mississippi legislature passed a new law in mid-March of 2011 requiring that motorists have more than just an insurance card, but actually have the insurance and be in the database. No insurance means no tags. This will prevent motorists from signing up for insurance and then canceling the policy to save money and still have the card.

With this becoming more common, it is more important now than ever to know how to make a car insurance comparison. Everyone wants to save money on auto insurance, and if that is the name of your game, you will want to get the absolute minimum that your state requires. That does not necessarily mean that you are going to have great insurance, though, because it will most likely just be liability. If your car still has some value to it, this may not be the best for you. If your car is totaled, you will have no way to recover the loss.

If you are already covered under a health insurance plan, it may not be necessary to get additional medical coverage with your auto insurance. If not, this could be crucial. Other additions that you will have to consider include towing, comprehensive coverage, theft, extra liability, car rental and a number of other options your agent will be happy to show you.
