Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) T50, in 1:8 scale
Youtube video available below.
Conceived as the spiritual successor to the Gordon Murray-devised McLaren F1, the Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 has rewritten the supercar rulebook, becoming the purest, lightest, most driver-focused supercar ever built. Created by an experienced team applying the same uncompromising approach to design and engineering that shaped every facet of the F1, and inspired by Murray’s 50 years at the pinnacle of Formula One and automotive industry engineering and design, the T.50 is an unflinching dedication to lightweighting, highly-advanced active aerodynamics and world-leading standards of advanced engineering. It is expected to be the last, and the greatest, ‘analogue’ supercar ever built.
The T.50 breaks from performance-car convention, just as the F1 did in 1992. It weighs significantly less than any other current supercar. It has the most advanced aerodynamics of any road car, and it relies on design and engineering excellence to deliver the purest, most driver-focused performance and dynamics of any road car since the F1. The T.50 is powered by a compact and light, naturally-aspirated, all-new 650hp V12 engine capable of an extraordinary 12,100rpm, simply unparalleled in a V12 road car. Ingrained in the Gordon Murray approach is a fanatical dedication to minimise weight in every component. As a result, the T.50 will weigh just 980kg – around a third lighter than the average supercar – making it, by far, the lightest supercar ever. Paired with the car’s extraordinary 3.9-litre ‘Cosworth Gordon Murray Automotive’ engine, it achieves a power-to-weight of 663hp/ton exceeding that of any other naturally-aspirated sports car designed for the road.
The T.50 adopts the same, iconic three-seat format that Murray pioneered for the F1, with the driver benefitting from a central ‘jet-fighter-style’ driving position. The new car builds on the F1’s highly-advanced aerodynamics, taking Murray’s ground-effect innovations to an all-new level with intelligent management of underbody airflow coupled with a 400mm fan at the rear. The fan actively controls underbody airflow – a feature Murray famously premiered on the Brabham BT46B Formula 1 ‘Fan Car’. This approach allows the upper surfaces of the car to retain purity and beauty, eschewing the exaggerated scoops and spoilers familiar in the segment and equipping the T.50 with the most advanced aerodynamics of any road car.
All engineering, design and styling of the T.50 is by Gordon Murray Design and each car will be manufactured by Gordon Murray Automotive at a new, purpose-built facility in Surrey, UK. Furthermore, all major components will be bespoke and UK-sourced, including the powertrain, body and chassis, creating a true British supercar. Just 100 owners of the T.50 will experience Murray’s vision after meeting a purchase price in excess of £2 million.
This fine 1:8 scale model of the Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops using CAD directly from Gordon Murray Design allowing us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Finally, the prototype model has undergone detailed scrutiny by the design and engineering teams at Gordon Murray Automotive and Gordon Murray Design to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
The GMA T.50 is limited to 199 pieces at 1:8 scale.
