Headquarters Mexico City, Mexico
Mastretta Technodia SA de CV is a Mexican carmaker and design studio established by Mexican industrial designer Daniel Mastretta in Mexico City in 1987. Mastretta under Tecnoidea Unidiseño brands has previously developed a small number of kit cars, but the 2010 MXT is the first fully self developed car . It often incorrectly claimed to be the first ever mass-production sports car completely designed and produced by Mexican engineers and designers, but Mexican automotive companies Dina and VAM had developed cars indigenously decades before. It is only the third Mexican high performance sports car ever.

History

MTX Mastretta

MXT Mastretta

During the 1990s, Mastretta focused on microbus 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. The few hand-made units were exported to Germany, Japan 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 featured a paragraph on the Unidiseño Mastretta, and since then it hadn't been heard of until June 2007, the magazine would announce the production of Mastretta's third car, the MXT and now along Daniel Mastretta's company under the name of Tecnoidea. The MXT is the top selling car in the South American and Central American Markets, but is mainly seen only in Mexico.

Mastretta's logo features a non-sharped shield with the Mexican flag colours green, white and red and a diagonal black and white race strip in representation of the Mexican coat of arms, and to avoid confusion with the Italian flag. "Mastretta" appears on the top.
