The Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 is designed to emphasize the driving experience on raw numbers. In an important area, it has succeeded.
Post this video Spy anytime The YouTube channel shows several examples of the inspiration for a T.50 – the McLaren F1 – when they drive through a tunnel on a tour of F1 owners in Italy. T.50 sounds absolutely unrealistic. The screams echoing from the tunnel walls are reminiscent of V-10 Formula 1 race cars, and even by comparison the McLaren F1 makes the sound a bit quieter.
The source of that amazing sound is a bespoke naturally coveted 3.9-liter V-12 made by Cosworth. The lack of forced induction helps to improve the hearing quality of this engine and allows it to revive at 12,100 rpm. It is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.
The V-12 produces 654 hp and 344 pound-feet of torque, which may not seem impressive by modern supercar standards, but it is still enough to chip the wheels at just 3,000 rpm. For comparison, the F1’s BMW-powered 6.1-liter V-12 produces 618 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque.
Only 125 T.50 supercars will be made, including the 100 road cars and 25 T.50s Nicki Lauda track versions shown here. Pricing starts at the equivalent of $ 3.26 million, but the entire production is sold out.
Once the T.50 homogenization and production is underway, GMA will focus on the low-hardcore T.33 Supercar. This follow-up model runs 100-unit production that has sold out despite the ট্যাগ 1.8 million price tag. In a recent interview, GMA founder Gordon Murray said an electric SUV is also in the works.
