Gordon Murray has chosen Nikki Lauda, the legendary Formula One driver who has won three races, to introduce his latest product, the Gordon Miuri T50s Niki Lauda.
This engineering and design masterpiece is a model for the T50 supercars, and only 25 of them are to be produced with a price tag of $ 4.3 million.
The Niki Lauda T50s will be produced at the same time as the city model T50 and is scheduled to be delivered to customers in 2022.
In terms of dimensions and design language, the relationship between the urban model and the racetrack is quite clear, but Gordon Murray claims that from the very beginning, he has designed both products with his own perspective and specifically in the model. For racetracks, the design of parts in the technical part is completely different from the urban model.
The weight of this model is about 852 kg (about 128 kg lighter than the urban model with a weight of 980 kg)
Kazorth’s high-end engine, a 3.9-liter V12, is capable of producing 700 horsepower. The engine in the city model produces only 650 horsepower. Also, with the help of air inlet placed on the roof of the car, the maximum power reaches 725 horsepower.
Gordon Murray has used less aerodynamic components on the body to reduce drag, and with the help of a 40 cm fan at the rear of the car, which acts as an air intake and creates a downward force.
The fan is also used in the T50s, and with a diffuser, delta-shaped rear wing and other aerodynamic components, the maximum downforce reaches 1,500 kg, which is almost twice the weight of the car.
Each of the T50s will have their own unique specifications and will be named after Formula 1 cars designed by Gordon Murray to win a Grand Prix.
For example, the first version will be called “Kyalami 1974” and will be delivered to the lucky buyer with a special book containing the specifications of this product and the Formula 1 car that won the competition.
Gordon Murray says about the design of this model:
“I was desperately looking to avoid what we did with the McLaren F1 in the design and production of this product. Because at the time of designing the McLaren F1, we first designed and built the urban model completely, and then designed and built the racing model based on it. This time we designed and produced both models separately and at the same time. “That’s why carbon fiber chassis, engine, gearbox and even aerodynamic body parts are completely different from each other.”
“We designed the race car in a way that no other company could and would not. Weighing only 850 kg, equipped with a naturally aspirated 4-liter V12 engine with a maximum power of 700 hp and a maximum torque of 484 Nm, which can go up to 12100 rpm. “The engine weighs 161 kg and has an exhaust system that is almost unparalleled in the automotive industry, taking the listening experience to a whole new level.”
Gordon Murray has no interest in the amount of power and time recorded with this race car, and although the T50s will obviously have a very high ability to record time on various racetracks, the driving experience with it on racetracks alone Gordon Murray is concerned that it does not look like any other car.
Gordon Murray has completely eliminated the extra parts to lose as much weight as possible. For example, by removing the variable valve timing system, the car engine is lightened by about 20.7 kg, and by using thinner gearbox materials, it is reduced by about 6 kg. It weighs less. This model does not require air conditioning and sound system, and these have been completely removed from it.
The rims are also made entirely of titanium alloy. Also, the automatic transmission of the sequential type is also made by the British company X Turk.
Also, a package called “Trakspeeed” which includes jacks, tools and materials needed to add fuel and configuration instructions to different sections will be given to the owners to get the best possible performance from this product in all racetracks. کردن.
Although the T50s are not designed for any of the racing series, Murray is working directly with GT champion Stephen Ruttle to create a club for future GT1 car owners.
Most T50s are currently on sale and only a handful can be purchased, which will also be sold to specific customers selected by Gordon Murray.
