Motoring Middle East

xclusive interview with car design legend Gordon Murray on his new supercar, the amazing T.50 from Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA), the true successor to the iconic McLaren F1

Lamenting that no one had appeared to create a true follow-up to the F1, and to mark his own 50th year in the business, Murray set out to create not only modern-day F1, but what he claims will be the definitive and last great ‘analogue’ supercar.

The T.50, created under his own brand Gordon Murray Automotive is as extraordinary as its illustrious forebear with three abreast seating in a car that’s smaller than Porsche 911. It will have a totally unique and bespoke 3.9-litre V12 engine that revs to a record-breaking 12,100rpm and produces 660bhp. All this in a car weighing less than a ton at 986kg.

To keep it planted and to ensure standard-setting ride and handling dynamics, the T.50 will have the most advanced and effective aerodynamics ever seen on a road car thanks to a unique show-stopping huge 400mm rear-mounted fan.

The car features sensational scissor (or dihedral as described by Murray) doors, and gullwing rear compartment lids to show off the incredible Cosworth developed power unit and luggage space. Like the F1, it has a central, very driver-focussed driver position, with passenger seats flanked on each side.

Most astonishingly of all, the T.50 comes not with an automatic or flappy paddle gearbox but an actual H-pattern 6-speed manual transmission nestled in a narrow floor-mounted console. The steering too is only assisted at parking speeds and on the move reverts back to being purely mechanical.

Only 100 will ever be made with a pre-tax price tag of £2.36 million each, and production of will begin at Gordon Murray Automotive’s UK production facility in January 2022 – with a year of testing and development to take place between now and then. Most of the cars are already spoken for, but apparently there is some availability and there will be a Middle East sales and service office in Abu Dhabi.
