1000hp. No turbos. Road legal, good for 100000km before work.

'Before significant maintenance'...

Kinda depends on your definition of significant!

Bearings don't last forever had those kind of levels.

Very interesting engine, port injection too! 

Too bad the car itself is a stupid looking thing but at least the engine is an impressive feat. 

Of course they need to add in hybrid technology to make it pass regulations though

Faster than you can say... WUT !!!!! This engine revs to 12,100rpm and gets there
in 3/10th's of a second !!! The rpm rise rate is 28,000 revs/sec which is about what
you might expect if the flywheel parts company with the crank while your average
high performance engine is at WOT.

Naturally aspirated 3.9litre V12 making 650hp with more technical tricks that you
can poke a stick at... this truly is cutting edge stuff. I'd have this over that 1000hp lump :)

That Gordon Murray V12 is unbelievable. Godspeed to them for making it happen in this woke-electric car fad we are seeing at the moment.

Yes... Murray is one of a kind and what I like about the T50 is that it is designed from the ground up to be the best all round "driving experience" without compromise. It is a beautiful thing without needing ugly angles and gaping cooling ducts to spoil the lines. It is light and has adequate power but doesn't need to be the fastest in a straight line simply for bragging rights. And with the downforce produced by the fan it will corner like an F1 car.

The T50 will be a car for a few lucky people who love driving a light and agile car where there are lots of corners and short straights... retired racing drivers for example :) It is not something for cruising the city and bouncing off the rev limiter while waiting at stoplights. Sadly, with such a limited production run, I expect that most of these cars will go straight into collections. Hopefully, at least one or two will see some track time so that we can have the pleasure of seeing and hearing it do its stuff in the hands of a competent driver.

Cheers...
