Gordon Murray Launches New T.50, Successor of McLaren

T.50 comes with a V12 engine with the lightest vehicle weight in total, compared to other supercars.

Gordon Murray Automotive has recently launched its new supercar T.50, with a flashback teaser of how Gordon Murray's journey had started. 

T.50 is going to be a lightweight model with a 2173 lbs (986 kg) total vehicle weight less than an average supercar, with the lightest engine, as implied by the automotive pioneer.

The company reportedly installed the supercar with a .85 gallons (3.9 liters) V12 engine, the same engine was built in 1904 for racing boats first. Every little thing is specifically produced by one of the most successful British companies. 

An ambitious design

The modern successor of the McLaren F1 sports car, which had also been designed by Murray, will have a £2.36M ($3M) price tag, before taxes. The vehicle can rev to 12,100 rpm, backed by a 15,7 inch (400 mm) rear-mounted fan.

The company also has not failed to show off the whole car with its interior and exterior design. It is defined as an "engineering art" by Murray himself.

South-African born British designer Gordon Murray explained his quite assertive thoughts on the new design: "I believe no other company could deliver what we will bring to market in 2022, producing this British supercar will be my proudest moment.”
