Gordon Murray Automotive has added a second supercar to their lineup.
Joining the wild T.50 supercar by Gordon Murray Automotive is the newly announced T.33, a new model that’s ready for effortless daily driving. While the T.50 is an extreme vehicle, the T.33 tones it down a bit for the sake of practicality. That being said, the GMA T.33 is still a supercar and means business.
“Like its T.50 and T.50s predecessors, the T.33 is all about the driving experience,” said Professor Gordon Murray CBE. “We have engineered the T.33 to provide exceptional levels of highly tactile and deeply immersive involvement to elevate the driver to a higher plane behind the wheel.”
Starting off, it must be stated that the T.33 is very light. Weighing just 2,403 lbs, the new supercar utilizes GMD Superlight carbon panels and a light alloy frame to remain light. Taking advantage of the T.33’s weight is a Cosworth-sourced 3.9-liter V12 engine that provides 607 horsepower and 333 lb-ft of torque. Altogether, the T.33 has a power-to-weight ratio that will make for a thrilling drive on and off of the track.
From its appearance, you can see that the Gordon Murray Automotive T.33 is missing the intuitive rear fan found on the T.50. While that fan may be gone, the T.33 does have plenty of aerodynamic components. For instance, there’s the Passive Boundary Layer Control (PBLC) system that utilizes rear diffusers, ducts and inlets that create an efficient airflow underneath the car. GMA says that the new system is 30 percent more efficient than a typical supercar’s ground effects.
Inside, the GMA T.33 has a very simple yet elegant cabin that provides all necessary controls without inhibiting the driving experience. A nice touch is the 120mm analog tachometer that is floodlit and placed dead center behind the steering wheel. But the tachometer isn’t the only analog component inside the T.33. In fact, Gordon Murray Automotive made the T.33 devoid of touchscreens and included analog controls.
Regarding the cabin, Professor Gordon Murray CBE said: “The T.33’s driver-focussed cabin enables each journey, no matter how short, to be relished free of distraction and it also provides the practicality for longer trips to be undertaken.”
Just 100 examples of the GMA T.33 will be created, each coming with a starting price of £1.37 million which equates to around $1.8 USD.
