Every new project starts with a blank page and a unique blend of an owner’s dreams and wishes. Commissioning a project for a one-off car to M.A.T. means making sure that clients’ ideas are brought to life in such a way that the new car will truly reflect their unique views, inner emotions and complex aspirations. The creation of such a handicraft is a long and painstakingly pleasurable process. Nothing could be further from a production line. Nothing could be further from the routine.
M.A.T. is the sole car manufacturer capable of conceiving, designing, developing and building a whole new car, racing or road legal, whether starting from a blank sheet of paper or working on the evolution of any given donor car.
A unique feature of M.A.T. approach to vehicle engineering is that the same attention that is normally given to the mechanical developments is devoted here to bodywork design, resulting in a supreme synthesis of aerodynamic perfection and seamless style.
