Gordon Murray evaluating WEC hypercar entry with T.50

  Gordon Murray evaluating WEC hypercar entry with T.50 Legendary Formula 1 designer Gordon Murray is evaluating an entry into the FIA World Endurance Championship's hypercar class with his new T.50 sportscar. The former Brabham and McLaren technical guru has revealed that Gordon Murray Automotive, the company set up to produce the £2 million T.50, has already met with WEC promoter and Le Mans 24 Hours organiser the Automobile Club de l'Ouest and the FIA. Murray also explained that the company has received interest from customers wanting to race a car billed as the spiritual successor to his McLaren F1, which in GTR form won Le Mans in 1995. More about Murray's T.

Gordon Murray Design (GMD) has unveiled an autonomous, electric and ultra-lightweight quadricycle that is claimed to meet new car crash safety requirements.

Called the Motiv, it has been launched as part of a consortium alongside Delta Motorsport and itMoves. The single-seater pod is said to provide “significant cost savings and improved refinement” over similar concepts thanks to Murray’s patented iStream Superlight tech.

Opinion: The T50 is special; it needs special owners, too

  Opinion: The T50 is special; it needs special owners, too McLaren F1-inspired hypercar offers a radically different experience from mainstream rivals. Owners must understand its unique charmsIt’s quite different from most rivals in performance and price: you’ll search in vain for a touchscreen and the same goes for 'driver aids'. This is an unashamedly analogue car and, according to its creator, all the better for that. Which is why he’s keen to get to know his owners as individuals: they’ll be buying an experience quite different from that offered by the bigger, more complex breed of modern hypercars.

Gordon Murray Design has the imagination and it has developed a radical new process of making equally mould-breaking vehicles. iStream® forges an entirely new production method that defies conventionality with its Formula One-derived construction and materials technologies.

Gordon Murray Design was established in 2007 to develop an innovative and disruptive automotive manufacturing technology trademarked iStream® and the design and prototyping of the T.25 & T.27 was central to both the development and validation of iStream®. This manufacturing process is now

The 2.54m-long, 1.3m-wide Motiv is targeted for use as private city transport or last-mile deliveries, and is “ready for immediate adaptation for driverless use”. Featuring a gullwing-style door that enhances accessibility, it can also be adapted to accommodate a wheelchair or a second seat, and will be available in van-style commercial guise – which is claimed to offer more than 1100 litres of load space.

Silverstone-based Delta Motorsport developed the powertrain, which incorporates a 20kW electric motor mated to a 17.3kWh liquid-cooled battery pack, for a range of about 62 miles, a 0-39mph acceleration time of 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 40mph. The battery can be charged from 20% to 80% capacity in 40 minutes, and will offer 2.5 hours of continuous running time from a full charge.

Bosch is finally making LiDAR sensors for autonomous cars

  Bosch is finally making LiDAR sensors for autonomous cars Bosch says it's developed production-ready LiDAR sensors for use in vehicles. It's hoping to keep costs down by making them at scale. That way, it might be able to offer them at a lower price and bolster more widespread adoption of autonomous driving systems. LiDAR is the final piece of the sensor puzzle for Bosch's self-driving ambitions. The company said it designed the sensors for all autonomous driving use cases.

A 450kg kerb weight is claimed without the battery – allowing the Motiv official quadricycle status – thanks to GMD’s extensive use of aluminium chassis, suspension and body components. The firm says that this construction method reduces the amount of raw materials needed compared to conventional means of vehicle production, and means the Motiv can use a smaller battery pack.

Despite the Motiv’s small stature, it has been designed to offer maximum interior space, with minimal intrusion from the propulsion, braking, suspension and steering systems. A lack of steering wheel, designated workspace and prominent 24in central display show off the model’s autonomous potential.

The consortium is looking for autonomous technology development partners to begin real-world trials ahead of mass production in two to five years, and says the Motiv’s “less complex production process” will entail minimal wait times for customers.

  What did the automotive world reveal at CES 2020? Each year, the tech world flocks to Las Vegas for CES — formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show. Traditionally it was the place to see the latest phones, televisions and laptops, though now more and more car manufacturers and automotive parts suppliers are showcasing their latest developments at the event as tech plays an ever-more important role in vehicle development.

Gordon Murray, chairman of GMD, said: “The best way to make any vehicle commercially viable and cost-effective, while delivering first-class efficiency, is to make it as light as it can be while retaining the highest levels of safety. With MOTIV we have used our iStream® technologies to create ultra-lightweight panels and a body structure that delivers a vehicle that is compact, refined, safe and versatile, while remaining capable of significant range.”

McLaren F1 designer Murray is also developing a revolutionary hypercar for launch later this year. Called the T50, it will make use of ground-effect fan technology to maximise downforce, and will enter production at the beginning of 2022.

The Motiv will make its public debut at the Mobility Re-imagined exhibition in London on 11 February.
