2150-Pound T.50 Supercar Much Better Than McLaren F1, Says Man Who Designed Both

From Car and Driver

  • Gordon Murray Automotive is delaying the launch of its three-seat supercar, the T.50, because of COVID-19, but will build the first prototype in September, with the first customers getting them in January 2022.
  • The T.50 will have a Cosworth-built naturally aspirated 650-hp 4.0-liter V-12, yet the car will weigh less than a Mazda Miata.
  • Gordon Murray told C/D that 40 percent of the T.50’s buyers so far are people under age 45, who may have had posters of his McLaren F1 on their walls as teens. “This is their F1,” he said.

UPDATE 7/22/20: Gordon Murray Automotive has released a cutaway drawing (pictured below) of the 4.0-liter V-12 that will power the upcoming T.50 supercar.

Power’s 2020 US Automotive Brand Loyalty Study for new cars, released this week, shows which automakers succeed in customer loyalty, and which ones have work to do.
