No EMIs available: This 15-crore supercar is a missile on wheels

Automotive designer Gordon Murray’s team has joined hands with Racing Point Formula One to create this 3-seater V12 supercar, arguably with the most advanced aerodynamics ever. And it costs around 15.71 crore.

The official image of the supercar was released ahead of its global unveiling in May next year. Gordon Murray claims that the T.50 could be the pinnacle of great analogue supercars

The supercar with full carbon fibre body weighs just 980kg. It is powered by a Cosworth V12 engine. The company claims the T.50 will be the highest-revving road car engine ever made, capable of a staggering 12,100rpm.

Professor Gordon Murray CBE, Chairman of Gordon Murray Group, said, “We were highly focused on achieving the purest possible form for the T.50, an objective we’ve achieved through world-first engineering innovations and active underbody aerodynamics."

The rear-end of the car is dominated by a 400mm ground-effect fan. It is part of a unique airflow management system designed by Gordon Murray’s team. The team claims that the ground-effect ‘fan car’ innovation rewrites the rulebook for road-car aerodynamics.

The T.50 features six different aero modes that enable the driver to optimise dynamic and outright performance. The most extreme is the Vmax Mode which combines extra power from a 48-volt integrated starter-generator and boosts power to 700hp.

GMA claims that the supercar has generated demand from a wider than expected global customer base, with a significant number from the USA and Japan.

Gordon Murray Automotive’s partnership with the Racing Point Formula One will see the T.50 move from software-based aerodynamic testing to physical testing in the Racing Point rolling-road wind tunnel from early next year.

Professor Gordon Murray CBE, Chairman of Gordon Murray Group, said, “Formula One remains a deep passion of mine, so partnering with Racing Point to develop the T.50 is hugely exciting. I’ve dreamt of delivering a road car with a ground-effect fan since I designed the Brabham BT46B F1 racing car in 1978. The system on the T.50 is much more sophisticated than the Brabham’s and will benefit enormously from Racing Point’s expertise and resources."

RPFO team owner Lawrence Stroll said, “Working on the T.50 with Gordon Murray Automotive is an honour and a privilege for everyone at Racing Point. Our aerodynamicists will utilise our wind tunnel to harness the very latest Formula One expertise and experience for the T.50 project, ensuring Gordon’s revolutionary fan concept delivers its full potential. I have admired the design and engineering skills of Gordon Murray since his earliest days in Formula One, so it is a personal pleasure to support this project, which truly rewrites the rulebook on aerodynamics."

The Racing Point Formula One Team had rebranded from Racing Point Force India earlier this year, under the leadership of Canadian businessman Lawrence Stroll.
