The company's new tech campus will be the manufacturing site of the car.
While titans such as the Aston Martin Valkyrie and Mercedes-AMG Project One have got us super thrilled, one piece of machinery that we can't wait to see more of is the highly anticipated T.50 from Gordon Murray. Before we can ever reach the height of our excitement though, the boutique brand has already confirmed an all-new product due to accompany the current range.
There aren't any technical details regarding this car but the company states that it all will be revealed on January 27th and that we can expect it to be the world's finest supercar GT. This doesn't give us much indication of which segment it will fall under but it's somewhat fair to assume that it will be another mid-engined offering that will be pitted against the likes of the Ferrari F8 Tributo, or perhaps the McLaren GT.
Furthermore, most of this new product will be designed, developed, and manufactured at Gordon Murray's new global headquarters and technology campus. Construction for this facility will soon commence at Highams Park, in Windlesham, Surrey, UK. Once complete, it will act as the company's official headquarters. Gordon Murray confirms that its state-of-the-art facility benefited from a £50 million ($68 million) investment.
Together with future manufacturing facilities that have been planned, Gordon Murray will cover everything from vehicle design and development. It will also accommodate a much-needed test track and a heritage center aimed at preserving historic products. Equally as important, the new space will cater to customer sales and service suites.
Chairman and founder Professor Gordon Murray says, "I am confident that both our new supercar and our new home will be game-changers in the UK automotive industry. We will have many important milestones for our HQ over the next two years. But one of the most important will be on 27 January when we reveal the first Gordon Murray Automotive vehicle to be manufactured there. We're all extremely excited to be revealing such a significant car to the world in just three weeks from now."
The arrival of a new product is an exciting announcement because the T.50 will be limited to just 100 bespoke builds. The company has already confirmed that it will not exceed this number because it is not interested in chasing volumes. Instead, it wants to ensure a personal relationship with each of its customers, much like McLaren still does with those who are still in possession of an F1.
