Gordon Murray's T.50s track special honors Niki Lauda, shaves 295 pounds, costs $4.36M | Hagerty Media

Expectations are high for Gordon Murray Automotive's V-12 powered T.50, which promises to be a monument to analog supercars like the McLaren F1. Of course, it wouldn't be a world-beating speed machine without a dedicated track variant, and GMA is obliging with the even more extreme T.50s Niki Lauda.

Lauda shifted his F1 cars manually, this one should have 3 pedals.
