F1: Gordon Murray Automotive reveals T.50s Niki Lauda edition

Former Formula 1 designer Gordon Murray has revealed a special edition of his T.50s road car, limited to just 25 examples, named after three-times world champion Niki Lauda.

The 852kg car seats two – the driver in the middle, the passenger to their left – and is powered by a 725bhp naturally aspirated V12 engine. A central fan at the rear of the car generates downforce, as on Murray’s famed 1978 Brabham Formula 1 car which Lauda took to victory in its sole F1 race at Anderstorp that year.

“The T.50s is named in honour of Niki to commemorate his famous win with the Brabham BT46B fan car in the 1978 Swedish Grand Prix,” said Murray. “Niki was a great racing driver and he was also a good friend and it is absolutely fitting that we are launching the T.50s Niki Lauda on his birthday. Niki would have appreciated the innovation and engineering detail in our car.”

“We are proud that Gordon Murray Automotive has named its new car after Niki,” said Lauda’s family in a statement. “He would have been extremely honoured to have been associated with a car designed and engineered by Gordon, with whom he had such a long association and friendship.”

The T.50s Niki Lauda edition costs £3.1 million excluding taxes.
