2021 Gordon Murray T.50
The 2021 Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 is a supercar designed and built by Gordon Murray, the mastermind behind the iconic McLaren F1. A lightweight, aerodynamic car powered by a naturally aspirated V-12 engine, the T.50 was designed as a spiritual successor to the F1, with a focus on the driving experience rather than extreme performance. The T.50 shares many similarities to the old McLaren F1, but every aspect has been improved through the use of new-generation materials and modern technology. Let’s find out more about the T.50, described as "the most driver-centric supercar ever built" in the review below.
New Place to Look for Abandoned Lamborghinis: The Desert
If you polled 100 people, Family Feud style, and asked them what random item they can find in a desert, an abandoned Lamborghini Huracan would probably register zero answers. And yet, unbelievably, there really is an abandoned Huracan in the Nevada desert just outside of the city of Las Vegas.
Long thought to be an uncorroborated rumor, the folks over at Royalty Exotic Cars went to the alleged site where the Huracan was beached and found exactly what they were looking for. It’s not every day that you see a $200,000 supercar abandoned in the middle of almost-nowhere, but, if for nothing else, this proves that wonders abound in places you least expect to find them.
The Gordon Murray T.50’s Rear Fan Revives Technology Used By Radical F1 and Can Am Race Cars
In 1992, McLaren debuted the F1, by far the most innovative production car of its era. Designed by Gordon Murray, the F1 needed less than 30 years to become a full-fledged classic, and it’s regarded as one of the greatest supercars ever built. It’s 2020, and Murray made a spectacular comeback with the T.50, a supercar developed and built by his own company, Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA). A spiritual successor to the F1, the T.50 also features a naturally aspirated V-12 engine, carbon-fiber construction, and three-seat layout, but it incorporates even more groundbreaking technologies. Among them, there’s a rear-mounted fan that helps to create downforce, thus eliminating the need for a massive wing out back. And this specific feature reminds me of two iconic "sucker cars" from the past, namely the Chaparral 2J and the Brabham BT46.
Is the Gordon Murray T.50 the True Successor to the McLaren F1?
The Gordon Murray T.50 supercar just broke cover and many already view it as a spiritual successor to the iconic McLaren F1. And this isn’t surprising, because not onlywas the T.50 was designed by the same man that penned the F1, but they also share many similarities, from the front end design and the naturally aspirated V-12 to the lightweight carbon construction and the central driving seat. But how similar are they? And is the T.50 actually a modern version of the McLaren F1? Let’s find out in the comparison below.
The Gordon Murray T.50 Is Lighter Than a Mazda MX5 and Smaller Than a Porsche 911
The Gordon Murray T.50, billed as a spiritual successor to the legendary McLaren F1, has finally been revealed with what we’d consider the most impressive specs of any car in the last decade. Featuring a 1+2 layout with a center-mounted driver’s seat (just like the McLaren F1) The T.50 – despite its size – can still manage to carry between 8 and 10 cubic-feet of luggage but, more importantly, is all about the experience of driving first and foremost. And, that’s why you shouldn’t be too depressed about the fact that the T.50’s Cosworth-built V-12 only delivers 653 horsepower and 344 pound-feet of torque. That doesn’t sound like a lot in a world where 1000-horsepower hypercars are starting to become common, but there’s a lot more to this car than its power output and ground-breaking performance.
2021 Lamborghini Essenza SCV12
The 2021 Lamborghini Essenza SCV12 is a track-only supercar produced by Lamborghini. Unveiled in 2020, it’s developed by Lamborghini Squadra Corse, the company’s racing division, and designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile. A bespoke design that looks nothing like Lamborghini’s other vehicles, the Essenza SCV12 is limited to only 40 units and comes with its own racing program. Like other bespoke customer track cars from the past, such as the Ferrari FXX K and the McLaren P1 GTR, all examples of the Essenza SCV12 remain with Lamborghini outside specific customer events. Labeled as a direct descendant to the Miura Jota and Diablo GTR, the Essenza SCV12 is powered by a V-12 rated at more than 818 horsepower, which makes it the most powerful Lambo V-12 supercar developed so far.
Rimac Wants You To Know That the C Two Hypercar is More Than Capable of Drifting
Croatia’s very own all-electric hypercar maker Rimac is busy making the C_Two, a semi-autonomous, 1914-horsepower rival to anything the established bunch has to offer.
While we wait to see how a C_Two off the production line really feels like, the company teases us with the car’s myriad of features out of which, obviously, we picked this one because you know as well as we do that 1,696 pound-feet of torque doesn’t mean much unless it can all be translated into clouds of tire smoke.
Frank Stephenson Explains How The World’s Fastest Animals Helped Shape The McLaren P1
We believe that if every car designer out there shared his approach on various models via YouTube, just like Frank Stephenson does, the world would be a better world. While that happens (do not hold your breath, though), here’s a another captivating video where Mr. Stephenson explains why the McLaren P1 looks the way it looks.
Here’s What Gordon Murray T.50’s Epic V-12 Sounds Like on the Dyno!
Gordon Murray is an automotive legend. He designed many successful Formula One cars for Brabham and McLaren, as well as the iconic McLaren F1. So it’s natural to be excited about his upcoming supercar, the T.50. A spiritual successor to the F1, the T.50 is described bu Murray as "the gratest road-car V-12 ever made." It’s not yet ready to go into production, but Murray unleashed a video of the V-12 engine on the dyno and it sounds incredible.
2020 Acura NSX - Driven
Most supercars live a life of unexplored potential. In a world where a Toyota Camry can hit 60 mph in a once-shocking six seconds, and six-figure performance machines have to cut that time in half to be relevant, few cars can be pushed to their limits in legal conditions. And the higher the limits, the fewer the chances you have to approach them. That means most supercars spend their days flaunting their looks — along with the prestige associated with their extreme capabilities — between occasional bursts of all-out speed.
The Lambo Essenza SCV12 is the Most Powerful Lamborghini Ever Built
Lamborghini’s highly-anticipated track-only car is finally here, and it’s called the Essenza SCV12. Developed by Squadra Corse, the company’s racing division, and designed by Lamborghini Centro Stile, the Essenza SCV12 is a limited-edition, track-only supercar that will be built in just 40 units. Lambo says it’s the spiritual successor to the Miura Jota and Diablo GTR, and the customer experience includes an exclusive club with special programs starting 2021. Just like the regular production Aventador, it’s powered by a V-12 engine, but this mill was revised to produce "more than" 830 horsepower, which makes it the most powerful V-12 Lambo to date.
2021 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Xago Edition
Lamborghini hasn’t been shy when it comes to rolling out special edition models. It’s a tried-and-tested formula that always works for the Italian automaker, largely because consumer demand for these SE models has always been high.
Take the 2021 Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Xago Edition, for example. It’s the latest in a long line of special edition Aventadors, except that this one is a celebratory SE that pays tribute to Lambo’s Ad Personam customization program. Yes, Lamborghini just rolled out a special edition Aventador SVJ to celebrate its own personalization division, though, to be fair, the Ad Personam program does have several new and exciting options on the table.
