Gordon Murray’s T.50 Supercar Is A 654HP Street-Legal Rocket With F1 Roots

Over the past few weeks, lauded Formula 1 racecar designer, Gordon Murray, has teased us with words of affirmation surrounding his next big project. Touted as a “driver’s” supercar, this purist platform was slated to usurp many of the genre’s most prominent vehicles, and now, we’ve been given an in-depth look at the car’s most intricate systems.

The T.50, as it’s been dubbed, is the first vehicle that’s been released by Murray’s automotive division since 1992 — and if we’re being honest, it was well worth the wait. Below its sleek, fan-clad exterior, the supercar boasts a naturally-aspirated V12 engine capable of producing 654 horsepower and 344 lb-ft of torque, which might not seem all that amazing in the world of contemporary cars. But what makes the Cosworth-GMA powerplant so special is its reputation as the world’s lightest — and most power-dense — road-going V12. This, combined with the car’s 330-pound carbon-bonded chassis, narrow wheel track, and forged aluminum components, allows the T.50 to tip the scales at just under 2,173 pounds, making it almost 33-percent lighter than any other supercar platform available today. Only 100 models are slated for release, and with a price tag of around $3,000,000, you can surmise that we’ve only scraped the surface of what makes this vehicle truly unique.
