About the T.50
The T.50 is a masterful blend of design, performance and beauty from one of the most storied automotive designers in the modern world, Gordon Murray. Built around a hand-laid carbon fiber monocoque, the T.50 is extremely lightweight even by today’s standards, weighing in at 2,160 pounds. With a bespoke 650 horsepower, Cosworth-designed 3.9-liter V12 that revs to 12,100rpm mated to a special 6-speed manual transmission, the T.50 promises to deliver one of the best driving experiences in history. Fan-assisted aerodynamics, excellent driving dynamics and the culmination of 50 years’ worth of experience together create one of the best driving cars on the planet, bar none. The T.50 marks Gordon Murray’s 50th automotive project and includes design influences from many of his previous projects. Murray says “We expect this to be the last, and the greatest ‘analogue’ supercar ever built.”
