Gordon Murray T.27 wins RAC Future Car Challenge
November 7, 2011 § Leave a comment
Gordon Murray emerged as the overall winner in the RAC Future Car Challenge this weekend, his all-electric T.27 (the blue one) judged to be the most energy-efficient of the 70-odd cars on the 57-mile Brighton to London run. It’s the second victory for him at the event – last year, the petrol-powered T.25 came out the best. No new news from Murray (pictured right, with the black T.25) on the cars’ progress, though he says that he’s talking with a number of major motor manufacturers in different regions about licensing the rights to production, and to his patented iStream production process. Gordon Murray Designs is also working on concepts for clients, with projects covering everything from tiny two-seaters to large trucks and lorries, he told me, and hydrogen, petrol, diesel and electrically-powered vehicles.
Full results for all the categories posted here at the Charging Point – complete social media ‘fail’ for the official RAC FCC PR operation, I’m afraid, who didn’t so much as tweet during the event and haven’t yet (at lunchtime Monday) published a formal list of winners, as far as I can see (event was Saturday, folks). More to follow from me on the event and some of the cars participating.
