Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) has finally whipped the covers off its latest supercar. Joining the T.50 and T.50s Niki Lauda in the GMA stable, the T.33 was “designed and engineered without compromise to offer the ultimate blend of performance, comfort, on-road driving experience and everyday usability”. 

T.33“With the T.33, our second all-new car, we gave ourselves a very clear brief: to create another timeless design,” said Professor Gordon Murray CBE. “It has been designed and engineered to the same exacting standards as our T.50, with the same emphasis on driver focus, performance, lightweight and superlative, pure design, but the outcome is a very different motor car. This is a car where comfort, effortless performance and day to day usability are even more front and centre in its character.”

T.33According to the British supercar maker, the two-seater T.33 adheres to the brand’s seven key principles. These include driving perfection, exclusivity (only 100 units will be made), lightweight, premium, engineering art, a return to beauty, and a personalised customer journey.

Based upon an entirely new carbon-aluminium ‘superlight’ architecture, the T.33’s carbon-fibre bodywork represents a triumphant return to beauty. The T.33 measures 4 398 mm bow to stern, 1 850 mm wide and 1 135 mm in height. GMA claims it tips the scales at a mere 1 090 kg. 

T.33The T.33 is endowed with GMA’s new GMA.2 V12. Based upon the building blocks to the high-revving 3.9-litre powering the T.50, the engine has been reconfigured to deliver performance that is even more accessible. Revving to a whopping 11 100 r/min, the T.33’s atmospheric motor produces 452 kW and 451 Nm of torque, available from 10 500 r/min and 9 000 r/min, respectively. According to the firm, 75 per cent of torque (338.25 Nm to be exact) is available from only 2 500 r/min. 

Two transmission options are on offer, with the standard item being a six-speed manual ‘box. A paddle-sifting unit, complete with instantaneous gear shit (IGS) with power clutch and twin-barrel actuation is available as an option.
