Gordon Murray Automotive has just offered supercar fans a first look at its T.50, heavily inspired by the similarly Murray-designed McLaren F1.

As the father of the original F1 from some three decades ago, there’s very little surprise that much of his new T.50 takes its design cues from the retro racer — from its centered driving position to its exterior body paneling, everything screams the F1. Of course, with so many years having passed since the McLaren came out, Murray can afford to equip the new supercar with much more modern technology, including the lightest V12 engine ever used in a road car, capable of pushing 654, and an innovative active aerodynamics system using a fan to draw air into various ducts, which works together with the rear wing to produce up to 50 percent more downforce when activated.

“From the first touch of the titanium throttle pedal to the V12 screaming at 12,100 rpm, the driver experience will surpass any supercar every built,” says Murray. “No other road car can deliver the package of power, instant responsiveness and driver feedback in such a direct and focused way while remaining comfortable, refined and usable every day.”

There’ll only be 100 T.50s made by Gordon Murray Automotive, with just a few still available at a price tag of roughly $3 million USD. Production will begin in 2022 and deliveries will come shortly after. Learn more at the company’s website now.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Land Rover has announced online broadcasts in Asia for the launch of the new Defender.
