Gordon Murray T.33 Coupe
Legendary F1 and McLaren F1 designer Gordon Murray has revealed his latest supercar, the T.33. Positioned as the "entry-level" offering compared to the T.50, the T.33 is a bit less raw-edged as the T.50 while sharing a slightly detuned version of the Cosworth 3.9-liter naturally-aspirated V12. The T.33 makes 606 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque, compared to the T.50's 654 and 344, respectively, while limited to 11,100 RPMs — 400 RPMs lower than the T.50's 11,500. Even more impressive is the 2,420-pound curb weight — for context, a new Miata weighs just over 100 pounds less, with 450 few horses. A manual or paddle-shift transmission is offered, with a limited-slip differential. The carbon fiber chassis uses the engine as a stressed member, just like top-level prototype race cars, while the body is designed for aerodynamics and not flashy looks, using active spoilers instead of the T.50's rear fan. Inside is a dead-simple interior, gloriously free of touchscreens and fiddly buttons — truly a car made to be driven. The T.33 is limited to 100 units and will start deliveries in 2024.
