Revealed: Gordon Murray’s T.50 hypercar is an ode to the naturally aspirated V-12

“It’s the last great analog supercar,” says Gordon Murray, as we survey his new T.50. Its connection to the McLaren F1, Murray’s seminal 1992 machine, is obvious. Note the seating-for-three and that jet fighter-like central driving position. The lowness, smallness and styling simplicity. Murray hates wings and spoilers and fussy style. From the front, it could almost be a McLaren F1.

Another testament to the fact that the ultimate drivers cars all have 3 pedals.

The only shock here is that not all 100 have been pre-sold. But then when I consider the type of person who typically buys hypercars, it's not really a good fit for them. Things are better than when the McLaren F1 struggled to find buyers, but "pure analog driving pleasure" and "hypercar buyer" just don't often share the same headspace. They'd have to slap on a few giant spoilers, big flares, and paint it in peach and lime green, and automatic only.

"It’s more engaging and also lighter".

Preach.

He also achieved a better power-to-weight ratio than a Caterham Seven 620R, and almost like a superbike. Murray you crazy son of a b*tch, you did it.

Preaching to the choir here I know, but for 60 or so years, generations of (us) junior-high-school boys have inked this very car on notebook paper when they should have been doing their sums, then daydreamed over it, technical specs and all. It is a testament to the human race that somewhere a little gang of guys get to actually build them. "What is it, Spade?" "The stuff of dreams." Still a little hope left in the world.
