Gordon Murray Automotive’s T.50 supercar completed its first development test drive.

The XP2 prototype car was driven at the Dunsfold test track (also known as the Top Gear test track) in Surrey.

The first person to test drive the new prototype car (albeit with limited revs) was Gordon Murray himself.

“The XP2 prototype is currently running at considerably less revs than its 12,100rpm limit, yet the T.50 felt fantastic on my first drive. The car was responsive, agile and rewarding to drive. It was a fantastic experience to be sitting in the centre of the car once again with great all-round visibility and I can see how much the owners will enjoy this experience. Obviously, there’s still a lot of development miles to be completed and many more prototypes to build. But the trajectory of the T.50 development is where we want it to be.”

Said Professor Gordon Murray CBE.
