Gordon Murray’s subsequent motor vehicle, presently identified as Venture Two, will ditch the T.50’s central driving place and 3-seat format in favor of a much more regular two-seat format. As a end result, it will journey on an entirely new platform. “The T.50 was a one of a kind monocoque simply because of the lover and the central driving place, and it truly is incredibly challenging to take that and adapt it to a two-seater,” explained Murray. While other automakers are abandoning twelve-cylinder engines to reduce expenses and adhere to emissions targets, the Venture Two will be powered by the exact V12 as the T.50. Regrettably, this will be Murray’s previous naturally-aspirated motor vehicle.
“We have looked incredibly lengthy and really hard at long run regulations, the emissions targets, and we can get a single much more typically aspirated motor vehicle – not just a non-hybrid, but a non-turbocharged. With the cash that it cost us to establish the V12 and the transmission for scratch, we have acquired to attempt to get a very little bit back again.”
