Heard Gordon Murray’s View on the T.50?

McLaren F1 Engineer Thrilled with Naming Recognition

After an extended and strenuous designing stage, Gordon Murray Automotive is prepared to ratify the awe-inspiring T.50 supercar. Consequently, who more desirable than the originator of the creation himself to furnish a stamp of approval?

Retired racing driver Dario Franchitti recently delivered the car to Gordon Murray’s home in a new video, to get the final blessing from the father of the T.50. “The development team is happy, the test drivers are happy, and I’m happy. We’re ready for your sign-off,” Franchitti said confidently. The video showcased the car being driven up to Murray’s home, with Franchitti explaining the journey and the process behind it. He said that the team had worked hard to ensure the car was ready for its final sign-off from Murray. The anticipation was high as the car arrived at its destination, and it was clear that Franchitti was eager to get the approval from the renowned engineer.

Murray, now with an air of confidence, pulls onto the motorway and activates the car’s amazing 656-horsepower V12 engine. At the touch of the ignition, it reverberates with a sound reminiscent of vintage Formula 1 racers, beginning its journey down a meandering country path.

T.50 Final Sign-Off Drive

The serious, steel-eyed expression Murray is known for suddenly dissolves into a wide grin as he takes in the rest of the rev range. A slight chuckle escapes his lips and his engineering genius reappears, evidently pleased with what he has created. “Fantastic,” he exclaimed, “this is exactly what I had in mind four years ago when I set out to make the next [McLaren] F1.”

“I didn’t really have any intention of creating something that was far removed from the F1. All I wanted to do was make a car that was even better than it… and that’s exactly what I did. The T.50 is such a driver-focused, thrilling car to drive. And the engine? It’s simply unbelievable.”

Murray remarks with astonishment that the engine of the T.50 is only a 4.0-liter considering the power it supplies. Unlike other popular supercars which are incredibly straightforward to operate – so much so a child could manipulate them – this model was assembled to present a rough, intense encounter.

“The T.50 is far from intimidating,” says Murray, “but it’s not the kind of car that you can just floor it in any situation. That’s what the F1 did,” he continues, “it’s a vehicle that, if you treat it with respect, anyone can drive it. However, if you start pressing the gas pedal harder, you need to focus,” he chuckles, “and that’s what a sports car should be.”

The result? Clearly, it’s infatuation for Murray.

The highly anticipated T.50 has recently gone into production, with the visionary born in South Africa approving the creation of the original version. Regretfully, it will not be legally available in the United States due to its centered driver’s seat. Nevertheless, the cheerful news is that the new T.33 will be road legal here – but all of them have already been pre-sold.
