    How do you follow up the McLaren F1 and Mercedes SLR? With this

    pile of crap:

    Way to go Gordon Murray, quite the beast. At least you finally made a car I can afford.

    The T.25 external dimensions create the opportunity to:

    * park at 90 degrees to the curb, offering real consumer benefits,
    * park up to 3 cars in one parallel parking space giving rise to lower parking charges.
    increase traffic flow,
    * explore the possibility of 2 vehicles travelling and overtaking in one conventional lane. * Combining this with the car length has the potential to triple lane usage at peak times.
    * reduce the environmental impact of vehicle manufacture (ie: lower material content etc) and day-to-day operation.

    The ultra lightweight by design (approximately 550kg) means that:

    * component life is increased
    * reduced energy is required to power vehicle, giving rise to higher fuel efficiency (mpg/electric battery range).
    * a competitive power to weight ratio is achieved

    This vehicle means that:

    * we lose all respect for Gordon Murray
    * automotive enthusiasts may be bored to death
    * Gordon Murray will be referred to as the guy who used to make cars guys want

    Click here to enlarge I love this forum!




    hahaha "Will it blend?". Perfect.


    It probably would considering the other objects that have been blended..............


    But seriously, this "car" blows.

    Someone tell MINI to build a stripped out Cooper S with a turbo S1000RR engine sitting over the rear axle.......

    Mini Cooper GTS?

    Is the mini fun to drive? Does it feel "girly" to drive at all?

    I'm really thinking I may want that mini coupe when it comes out.

    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I'd rather have fast cars than save blue whales.

    It's not like any of his cars ever sold enough to even have a measurable impact on the environment.
