Yesterday, Gordon Murray Automotive unveiled its T.50 supercar.
The T.50 also celebrates Gordon Murray’s 50 year long career.
This supercar has been engineered to be the purest, lightest and most driver-centric supercar ever built.
The highlight for me (and there are many on this car) has to be the fan-assisted aerodynamics. At the rear of the car you can’t help but notice the 400mm rear-mounted fan that helps to increase downforce by 50%. In Braking Mode 100% more downforce is generated.
The T.50 uses a bespoke 663PS 3.9 litre V12 Cosworth engine. This engine is currently the world’s lightest, highest- revving, naturally aspirated road engine. The engine revs to 12,100 rpm.
Chassis and body is constructed from carbon fibre.

“Just 100 customers will share my vision, a car created to improve on the F1 formula in every conceivable way. With 30 years of technological and systems advancement, now, the time is right to design the greatest analogue driver’s car. I believe no other company could deliver what we will bring to market in 2022, producing this British supercar will be my proudest moment. With the design of our T.50 supercar, we are taking the same focused approach that was applied to the design of the McLaren F1. Thanks to modern materials and 30 years of development, we have been able to deliver a far better all-round car in the T.50, while setting its weight at just 986kg, a full 150kg lighter than the F1.”Said Gordon Murry CBE.
Only 100 will be built with prices starting from £2.36m.
