McLaren F1 legendary T.50 supercar is expected to be released in 2022 with a limited number of 100 cars.
Gordon Murray – who designed the iconic McLaren F1 – has revealed one of his oldest projects ever. T.50 is a driver-focused supercar that Gordon Murray says is “pure, light and focused on the best driver ever built”.
T.50 was built to become a supercar that has a similar role to F1 in the past (no dual-clutch gearbox was used) according to Murray’s interpretation. T.50 is equipped with a fully carbon-fiber mid-mounted rear engine with the famous center seat layout and 6-speed H-type manual transmission.
In terms of power, the new 3.9-liter V12 engine with a naturally aspirated exhaust is developed by Cosworth to produce 650 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque. According to Murray, the engine does not have a flywheel, which makes it faster than the V12 engine that Aston Martin Valkyrie is using.
“I have absolutely no interest in pursuing the record for maximum speed or acceleration. Instead, we focus on bringing the purest, most rewarding driving experience to any Which super car has ever been built, but the speed factor will also be guaranteed, “Gordon Murray said.
T.50 will also benefit from advanced aerodynamic features that incorporate intelligent body control thanks to the under-hood wind diffuser combined with a 400 mm wind turbine on the rear end that Murray has Name it “Fan Car”. This layout also appeared on his famous Brabham BTF6B racing car.
T.50 is expected to be F1’s legacy product in all aspects, including exterior design, finish, technical quality and operability.
T.50 will be put into production with a limit of only 100 units and has an estimated selling price of about $ 2.54 million. Production will take place at a newly built facility located in Survey, England. The successor F1 supercar is scheduled for launch in 2022.
