Developed in parallel with the T.50 supercar, Gordon Murray reveals his next model, the track-ready T.50s Niki Lauda. Named after one of the fastest drivers on the planet, the upcoming T.50s has been fully optimized for the track with updates that include track-specific springs, dampers, and an anti-roll bar and a lower front and rear ride height. Keeping it on Earth is an array of aerodynamic upgrades such as a rear-mounted delta wing inspired by Murray's 1983 Brabham BT52 F1 car, a front splitter, dive planes, NACA ducts, and a central fin to enhance yaw stability.
Powering the supercar is a 3.9L V12 from Cosworth that produces 725 hp and is coupled to a custom Xtrac IGS six-speed automatic. The T.50's top speed is expected to be 200-210 mph. To keep all this power in control, Brembo has equipped the T.50s with carbon ceramic brakes with six-piston calipers in the front and four-piston calipers in the rear. These are surrounded by Michelin slicks with lightweight magnesium forged 18-inch wheels.
Only 25 T.50s Niki Lauda's will be made and production starts in January 2023.
