Gordon Murray Automotive opened fire on the supercar segment with the lightning-fast T.50 and the possibly even faster T.50s Niki Lauda, now follows a less radical sportsman who would be useful every day. But don’t make a fool of it, because the GMA T.33 is also powered by a midship-mounted V12 that drives the rear wheels via a manual six-speed gearbox. You can also go for an Xtrac-made sequential switch.
The 3.9 liter V12 developed by Cosworth, weighing only 178 kilograms, can cope without a compressor, without turbos and without an electric boost. But that keeps the high-revving block – the red zone is at 11,000 rpm – to come out particularly spicy. The power unit develops an output of 617 hp and a maximum torque of 451 Nm, 75% of which is already available at 2,500 revolutions. Not bad for a car that only weighs 1.1 tons. Gordon Murray Automotive does not communicate performance data, but we have no doubt that the GMA T.33 is a darn fast supercar.
1.64 million euros
No central seating position as in the T.50, but a classic two-seater cockpit. Although the interior of the GMA T.33 is neatly finished and uses beautiful materials, Gordon Murray Automotive keeps digital displays out. That’s not to say that this Spartan-looking supercar doesn’t have the necessary comfort gadgets: both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are available. The T.33 would also have a trunk volume of 288 liters, which is integrated on the sides of the car.
Gordon Murray Automotive plans an edition of 100 copies, with the choice between left and right hand drive units. Each GMA T.33 carries a price tag of 1.37 million British pounds, about 1.64 million euros at the current exchange rate. But you also get a very special super sports car in return. You can order now, the first deliveries would not start until 2023.
