When it comes to great cars, one of the first models that come to mind is the McLaren F1. The name under the designs of this vehicle and many other cars is not a glutton from Gordon Murray.
Murray later founded his own firm, Gordon Murray Automative (GMA). The company introduced the T50 Supercar, the car that almost ignored other superior cars. Some of the features of the vehicle make it stand out from its competitors.
Great car focused on driving pleasure
According to Murray's description, this car is a "Numbers car" not. In other words, the aim is not to throw the fastest variety, to reach certain faces as quickly as possible, not to reach the highest speed. The car aims to offer the smoothest driving experience.
For example, the 3.9-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine of the vehicle produces only 653 horsepower, which is not an impressive performance in terms of superior cars today. On the other hand, the Cosworth engine can reach a full 12,100 rpm and is supported by a 6-speed gearbox.
In this type of cars, the vehicle has a manual gear in a way that we do not see much anymore. Considering that gearboxes that provide faster transitions are preferred to save time, the car has a quite different structure in this sense.
The giant fan behind draws attention
At the back of the vehicle, there is also a fan of about 40 centimeters, similar to the old Batmobile. The fan, a module of the efficient aero system, is inspired by the Brabham BT46B Formula 1 vehicle designed by Murray. Thus, while the friction of the vehicle is reduced at high speeds, it also allows the vehicle to stick to the road when braked.
The area where the car makes the main difference is weight. Slightly heavier than 1200 kg, the car is about half a ton lighter than vehicles such as the Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren P1. Each of these vehicles has more powerful engines than the T50 engine, but none of them can match the T50 in length in weight / horsepower ratio.
Only 100 of this excellent car will go on sale. Moreover, those who buy the vehicle will also have to wait a deadline to get their car. Production of the T50 will start in January 2022 and will cost just over $ 3 million. A track version of the vehicle and a Le Mans version will also be produced.
