McLaren F1's 'true' successor to get high-end engine, active aero kit

McLaren F1's 'true' successor to get high-end engine, active aero kit

The T.50's aerodynamics are inspired by the F1 but feature an innovative underbody airflow management, as well as a 400-mm fan at the back which also helps with the underbody flow.

To start, the T.50 will feature numerous F1's legendary design features, most notably a naturally aspirated V12 engine (this one revs to 12,000 rpm and will be built by Cosworth) and a manual gearbox.

Check out the press release section below for even more details. It's called the Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 and based on specs alone; it'll be epic. The transmission is a classic 6-speed stick-shift manual gearbox built by Xtrac.

The man behind it is named Gordon Murray, and before he endeavored to create the F1, he spent decades designing actual Formula One cars, some of the most successful ones in history.

When will the T.50 be out and how much is it?

The T.50 was engineered with the same attention to detail, but with the advantage of more modern materials and construction techniques, and as such it will only weigh 2,160 pounds - around 50 pounds more than a Mazda Miata.

It'll be powered by an all-new V12 engine, developed for the project by Cosworth Powertrain. He noted that the T.50 draws efficiency from a lightweight design. All that power will be sent towards the rear wheels only - as per proper supercar parlance.

The T.50's most eye-catching feature is its 400mm-diameter, electrically driven fan, which creates downforce under the vehicle to increase stability and cornering power, literally sucking it onto the road.

Injury-hit Warriors ready to lean on 'rock' Curry in NBA Finals
No player in National Basketball Association history has ever averaged 35 points per game on 50/40/90 shooting. The Raptors have outscored the Warriors 172-152 in non-third quarter minutes in the series.

That said then, the vehicle will be made to stick to the ground at speed by using an old trick Murray did before when he worked for Brabham and got their auto banned from Formula One: a vacuum fan underneath the auto.

"I have absolutely no interest in chasing records for top speed or acceleration". "We've chosen these because they're all we need", said Murray.

Another vital advantage, Murray said, is that the auto can retain a purity of design simply not possible in existing supercars, which are covered with "unsightly wings, outlets, vents and bulges". Dihedral doors are being used, too, to get inside. For various reasons, said McLaren has become one of the world's most sought-after performance cars, and on the rare occasion that an example surfaces for sale, it can easily net eight figures.

Murray is especially proud of the new 3.9-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine that will power the machine. The plan is deliveries start in 2022, at around £2.5 million (around P164.6 million) a pop. You'll be doing it from a central driving position too, which should sound familiar.

The Gordon Murray Automotive product development strategy includes a commitment to minimize weight in every component, including a unique carbon fiber tub and carbon fiber body panels. "Also, driver-selectable engine maps ensure a driving mode to suit every situation". Murray even had Kenwood build a featherweight hi-fi for the auto.

"The T.50 design has the same focus and better the F1 in every area - ingress and egress, luggage capacity, serviceability, maintenance and suspension set-up".
