Gordon Murray’s T.50 supercar
Designer Gordon Murray has divided his career between these two extremes, working on ways to streamline mass production at one end, and devoting his considerable aerodynamic skills to supercar design at the other. This is the new T.50, the first car to be built by newly founded Gordon Murray Automotive and the 50th car created by the engineer over the course of a long career. Built around a bespoke 3.9-litre V12 engine – the ‘lightest, highest-revving and most power dense road car engine ever made.’
The three-seater is pure, minimal and ultra-light, is described as suitable for everyday use, although certain components are definitely exotic – like the rear-mounted fan that generates downforce to glue the car to the road. It’s a development of the Brabham BT46 F1 car that Murray created in 1978 and which was almost immediately banned by F1 rules.
The legendary 90s-era Murray-designed sports car that set new benchmarks for speed and engineering accomplishment.
Will the T.50 ascend to the same mythical levels? Murray’s hand is evident in every aspect of this new machine, from the smooth, clean surfaces to the pared down switchgear and unfussy detailing. As for performance, no figures have yet been released, indicating that Murray and his team are quietly confident they’ll be setting benchmarks all over again.
