Gordon Murray T.33 : Designed without Compromise

Gordon Murray T.33

“With the T.33, our second all-new car, we gave ourselves a very clear brief: to create another timeless design. 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 center in its character.

Gordon Murray T.33Gordon Murray Automotive has launched the all-new T.33. It is the second newly created model from GMA, joining the T.50 and T.50s Niki Lauda in the lineup. The two-seat, mid-engine T.33 was conceived, built, and constructed without compromise to provide the ideal balance of performance, comfort, on-road driving experience, and everyday usage.

Gordon Murray and his colleagues created the T.33 while adhering strictly to the company’s seven guiding principles. The T.33’s carbon fibre body reflects a triumphant return to beauty, based on an entirely new carbon/aluminium super light construction. GMA spent no time or money in pursuit of a perfectly proportioned, perfectly balanced form that defied comparison.

The T.33 emits a sense of purity and an air of completely ageless beauty, thanks to fanatical attention to detail. The T.33 is the pinnacle of automotive beauty that no other business, no other automobile designer could have developed.

Each owner will be able to work with the GMA design team to personalize their T.33 with their preferred colours and liveries, guaranteeing that no two cars are similar. With the most sophisticated and effective aerodynamics ever seen on a road car, achieved by its unique rear-mounted fan, the GMA T.50 broke the supercar rulebook when it debuted in 2020. Now it’s up to the equally inventive T.33 to usher in a new age of ground effect aerodynamics in road cars.

The beauty of simplicity is the key to the design of every GMA model, and the new T.33 is no exception. As with the T.50 and T.50s, each component and every curve and radius is a bespoke design on the T.33 and is there because it has a function to perform. Our slavish adherence to the concept of engineering art extends far beneath the surface of the T.33‚Äôs body. Every part, no matter how small and no matter that the owner may never see it, is designed to the same exacting standards as the body.‚ÄĚ

Entering the cabin of many modern-day supercars is like stepping into a universe of enormous touchscreens and countless sub-menus that generate confusion and distraction. The T.33’s interior is elegantly built, although it lacks touchscreens. As with the exterior, nothing is included unless it has a function, and if there was a risk that it might dilute the driving experience, it was simply removed from the development program.

The automobile even lacks column stalks, with the indicators controlled by thumb-buttons on the carbon fibre steering wheel’s horizontal spokes. The superbly built, flood-lit, 120mm diameter rev counter is delightfully, proudly analogue, as are the remaining driver-centric controls such as the aero, lights, aircon, and HMI. All primary and secondary controls are machined from the best grade aluminium alloy, offering a beautifully tactile feel.

The pedals are made of aluminium alloy, which provides a great blend of strength and lightness while giving the driver outstanding control and sensitivity. A distinctive carbon steering wheel and adjustable carbon seats provide additional reinforcement of the T.33’s pure driver attention if needed. The inclusion of a front storage compartment and twin side baggage lockers with a combined 280 litres of capacity, large enough for six bags, gives the T.33 the practicality to embark on continent-crossing journeys.
