New Gordon Murray Automotive T.33 supercar to sit below T.50

Gordon Murray Automotive’s up coming supercar will be termed the T.33 and will be unveiled on 27 January, the organization has confirmed – and the car is to be developed at the company’s new world wide headquarters in Windlesham, Surrey.

Also referred to as Task Two, the new T.33 product is envisioned to retain the Cosworth-designed V12 engine from the radical T.fifty, but drop that car’s 3-seater format and its complicated floor-effect fan. It’s envisioned to be produced in smaller quantities, in line with GMA’s ethos of only ever producing up to a hundred illustrations of any of its styles.

In a small statement, Gordon Murray Automotive explained the new product as ‘the world’s best supercar GT’ and stated the new HQ and Technological innovation Campus, termed Highams Park, would be the foundation for its producing, as very well as “most of the growth work”. The former BOC facility was taken about by GMA in 2020, and £50m is being invested on establishing its places of work, as very well as on a heritage centre, buyer income and servicing facilities, and a check track. 

Murray himself has told Auto Convey earlier that the T.33 is very likely to be the past GMA motor vehicle to element a usually aspirated powerplant, without the need of some form of electrification. 

“We’ve seemed pretty lengthy and hard at potential laws, and we can get in a single a lot more usually aspirated product. The cash it price tag us to establish the V12 and transmission from scratch, we’ve bought to check out to get a small little bit back again,” the former McLaren designer stated. “The powertrain is what feeds back again into Task Two. It’s a brand new platform for that motor vehicle we’re commencing all over again on that. The T.fifty was a one of a kind monocoque, because of the fan and the central driving place, so it would be difficult to take that and adapt it to a two-seater.”

Murray has declined to give a cost for the T.33, over and above confirming that it will be a lot more reasonably priced than the £2.36m T.fifty. “If you are only carrying out a hundred cars, they are not going to be £150,000,” he told us. “But I assure T.fifty will be our halo motor vehicle it is a pretty high-priced motor vehicle, and Task Two will not be at that degree.”
