The M25 was built to honor Matra’s 25th anniversary. The two-seat F25, dubbed a “pocket rocket” was 136.5 inches long, and was fitted with a rear-mounted 197-horsepower 4-cylinder 1.8-liter turbo engine giving the car a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 160 miles per hour. With a body constructed of carbon fiber and Kevlar over aluminum honeycomb, the 1,550-pound M25 also provided exceptional handling. Inside were two bucket seats with four-point seat belts and standard analog instruments behind the steering wheel. Luggage space was reserved for behind the seats. The large spoiler and removable glass roof and doors were other notable features.
