Murray T25 – What you would least expect from the man?

The title by no means belittles Gordon Murray’s achievements with the T25. I just ask the question because this is the same man who gifted the world the McLaren F1. Nothing short of genius, Gordon Murray takes design to a whole other level. His newest creation is the T25 3-seater city car. Like the McLaren F1, the driver sits in the central position with passengers slightly to the rear on both sides.

The T25 will use a rear-mounted 3-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed clutchless transmission. With 51 bhp and 42 lb-ft of torque, the T25 will go from 0-100 km/h in 16.2 seconds while topping out at a restricted 145 km/h. Not what you would expect from Murray, is it?

This car is all about minimizing emissions, that’s for sure. Fuel economy is 74mpg, which is better than most hybrids / electric vehicles out there. The car will be equipped with anti-lock brakes, stability control and traction control. Inspired by Formula One, the chassis frame is said to be extremely strong; a concern with most of these tiny economical cars. If redefining the modern vehicle wasn’t enough for Murray, he took it a step further and developed a whole new manufacturing process called “iStream” which custs initial investment costs, space utilization in factories and energy required to build the T25. What a guy!

      No pricing has been released, as of yet, until the grant for production is approved. Gordan Murray is currently building prototypes for companies in which they may decide to buy the rights to sell. If you find out anything before I do, please drop me an email šŸ™‚
