Chris Harris is having a hard time making up his mind, so we’re asking you

It sucks being a rich dude these days. All these cars to choose from, each trying to wink at you in its own way, lots of decisions, decisions, decisions. So let’s say you had unlimited funds. What would you pick? The T.50 or the Valk?

Why not pick both?

The Gordon Murray T.50 came out of its creator’s desire to build the best driving car out there. In a way, this means the T.50 puts some distance between itself and the current hypercar trend with a couple of features.

For starters, it’s small and light. Then, you’ve got the central driving position and the n/a V-12 engine mounted in the middle of the car, plus the likes of manual transmission and rear-wheel drive.

That said, the T.50 doesn’t put forward stellar figures. Heck, you can get more power from a family sedan these days if you really want to, as the T.50 is good for ‘just’ 654 horses and 344 pound-feet of torque.

In the other corner, the Aston Martin Valkyrie is trying to redefine extreme. It, too, packs a Cosworth n/a V-12 but it’s aided by an e-motor to produce 1,160 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque, which is double the numbers put out by the T.50.

Needless to say, the Aston Martin is more high-maintenance than the T.50 due to its track-oriented nature - although it’s just as street legal as Gordon Murray’s creation. They both cost an arm and a leg, so if money wasn’t a problem, what would be your weapon of choice? We’d take both, thank you very much.

Tudor’s first encounter with cars took place when he was only a child. Back then, his father brought home a Trabant 601 Kombi and a few years later, a Wartburg 353. At that time, he was too young to know how they worked and way too young to drive them, but he could see one thing – each of them had a different ethos and their own unique personality. As time went on, he started seeing that in other cars as well, and his love for the automobile was born.  Read More
