It's amazing that he's been able to do this again and especially considering how small the company is yet how monumental the challenge was/is. However, at £2.4 million, ouch. That is Bugatti territory.

The F1 was and still is legendary but sadly isn't the prettiest thing and sadly nor do I find the T50. Looks very much like a 2010 version of a McLaren's MP4-12C!

All this aside, I'm sure they are already sold out of the first year's production and would be interesting to see how long he plans on producing this. Most cars at that price level normally don't hit 100 in total production, with the exception of Bugatti and the Chiron which is set for a total of 500 are scheduled.

Thanks for posting!

already more than two thirds of total production of 100 sold, even before a prototype is built.

Well done, Mr Murray

Murray is a radical, innovative genius.
The car puts function over form, but I think it just looks so cool.
A nod to the BT 46 fan car, too.

I'd far rather have one of those at less than 1000kg than a 2 tonne Bugatti by VAG...

Harry's Garage of the same car here. Murray is a bit full or himself but what a car. Cant see a fault in it. NA 12 cylinder engine, manual box, lots of aero, luggage space, passenger space and all in a sensibly sized package weighing 300kg less than a McLaren. Trouble is ££££££ and only 100 in the build run..

But they key for me is no useless tec in a light weight package. Wonder how real the production plan is. Will it ever happen or be another TVR?

Mate of mine is working on this at the moment (he's at Cosworth, Northampton) - we were discussing over breakfast on Saturday.
