Gordon Murray T50 aims to be the ultimate analog supercar

Gordon Murray designed a three-seat automotive icon in the 1990s, and now he’s at it again.

The same kid that would shout out “Volkswagen,” “Chevy,” and “Ford” from the backseat when his father pointed at a car would one day become a full-fledged car expert and collector in his own right.
