Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) on Thursday revealed the follow-up to its T.50 supercar. The new model is called the T.33, and GMA founder Gordon Murray says the T.33 was inspired by sports cars from the 1960s. This supercar was designed with more emphasis on comfort and everyday usability than the T.50, but without compromising the driving experience.

GMA says that the T.33 is built on a carbon-fiber monocoque which brings the car’s weight down to around 2,200 pounds. Murray’s interest in 1960s sports cars is evident in some of the retro styling features such as stacked headlights. Murray also explained that this car was inspired by the design of the Porsche 718 Boxster.

The new model doesn’t have a fan like the one mounted behind the T.50, but it still gets some significant aerodynamic assistance. GMA claims that the GMA Passive Boundary Layer Control (PBLC) System utilizes a ground effect by using a front intake duct that channels air under the floor, and a rear diffuser with a dedicated duct that increases aerodynamic efficiency by up to 30% over conventional designs. The PBLC also allowed Murray and his design team to ditch the wings and vents for a more minimalist exterior design.

In the mechanical heart sector, the T.33 uses a reconfigured version of the T.50 Cosworth 3.9 liter V-12. The naturally aspirated center-mounted engine gets a modified cylinder head, new camshaft, and variable valve timing, as well as T.33 dedicated air intake ram, exhaust system, and new engine mapping. This reconfigured engine gets an output of around 606 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, with a redline at 11,100-rpm. Like the T.50, the T.33 will be offered with an Xtrac 6-speed manual transmission. But GMA and Xtrac are also developing a paddle-shifted transmission, which GMA claims have the fastest displacement in a supercar.

As for the legs, the T.33 gets double-wishbone suspension front and rear, with the rear suspension mounted directly to the transmission case, as well as hydraulically assisted rack and pinion steering. The brakes use carbon-ceramic from Brembo, with 6-piston monoblock front calipers and 4-piston monoblock rear calipers. The T.33 uses Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires with 19-inch front and 20-inch cast alloy wheels.

Unlike the T.50 which is equipped with three seats, the T.33 itself is presented with two seats. For the infotainment itself, the T.33 is also embedded with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. even though it already uses Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, GMA does not include a touch screen to maintain a minimalist aesthetic. The T.33 also lacks control stalks, so functions such as indicators are handled by buttons on the steering wheel.

This supercar is priced at a pretty fantastic price, which is £1.37 million (around Rp.26 billion), and only 100 units will be produced. The delivery of this supercar itself is scheduled to begin in 2024. GMA said the T.33 is a global car that is homologated for all regions, so it could be that the T.33 is present in Indonesia.
