Murray reveals T.25 city car
June 28, 2010 § Leave a comment
Gordon Murray Design’s long-awaited T.25 city car is on show in public for the first time today at an event in Oxford. A 550kg single-seat commuter vehicle with a central driving position and optional rear seats, it’s just 1.3m wide, short enough to be parked end-on to a kerb, saving inner-city space.
The T.25 is to be cheap and low-energy to make, via Murray’s trademarked iStream manufacturing process, has recycled components and no paint, and its tubular steel body frame is promised to offer excellent crash protection. Power comes from a 660cc, three-cylinder rear-mounted engine, and the car’s been developed with driving pleasure in mind, as you’d expect from the creator of the McLaren F1.
