Gordon Murray Automotive T.50

Produced from 1992-1998, the McLaren F1 is considered by many to be one of, if not the greatest supercar ever made. Its original designer Gordon Murray has been tooling away at what he's calling the spiritual successor to the F1 with the upcoming T.50. Murray is aiming for the T.50 to be the "lightest, most driver-focused supercar ever built" and while that's a pretty bold statement, we are talking about the designer of the McLaren F1 here. 

The T.50 will feature a mid-engine and rear-wheel-drive layout with a central driving position just like the F1 and it will be powered by an all-new 3.9L Cosworth-built V12, which is said to be the highest revving engine to ever be used in a production car. Keeping the car as light as possible has  also been a big focus with a final weight of 2,160 lbs, which if accomplished, will make it the lightest supercar ever built. 

Only 100 T.50s will be built and deliveries are set for early 2022.
