I’m sure many of you have heard about the Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 by now. If you haven’t, it’s a modern take on the McLaren F1 that featured the iconic middle driving position. On top of being absolutely stunning, it even has a six-speed manual and a naturally aspirated V12. I can only imagine the opera that would spout from its exhaust. Most cars today have some sort of forced induction that takes away from the sound of an NA engine so it’s nice to see something so raw. It also only weighs a little over a ton and with 654 horsepower that makes it very very fast.
To be honest, when I first saw it, my mind went to a modern Saleen S7 until I saw the seats. Overall, I think it’s a fantastic car that does a good job of balancing modern performance while still incorporating old school tech like the manual gearbox. But, for $3 million I can only hope to ever see one in person.

The Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 is finally here. It's the 654-hp, 2174-pound successor to the McLaren F1. It's powered by a 3994-cc V-12 that's mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. Like the Macca, the T.50 is a carbon-fiber three-seater, a purist's machine reflecting the tastes of its creator. Unlike the F1, though, Murray's new supercar has a massive fan fixed to rear end to manage airflow above and below the car. Would you take it over the F1? 📸: @richardpardon
