Sprint Power chosen as key technical partner for Gordon Murray Automotive’s T.50 supercar project
Sprint Power, a British technology company specialising in vehicle propulsion, has been chosen by Gordon Murray Automotive to develop and integrate the complete electrical systems for its T.50 supercar. The multi-million-pound technical partnership is a key development in the creation of what Murray says will be “the purest, lightest, most driver-focused supercar ever made”.
The brief is to create an electrical architecture that is as light as possible with ‘no-compromise’ performance. Sprint Power is also developing lightweight, cutting-edge battery technologies.
Founder and CEO of Sprint Power, Richie Frost, commented: “We are very privileged to be working with the team at Gordon Murray Automotive, their fantastic work ethic and approach helps our team to perform at the highest level. Like Sprint Power, they seek out innovative solutions, thinking of inventive ways to achieve more while capitalising on the collective strengths of the team to deliver great results. I believe this is something that has filtered down from Gordon’s days in top-tier motorsport.”
Frost added: “There are members of our team who have worked closely with Gordon Murray Design for the past decade, including me. It’s great to be playing such an integral role in the development of the T.50 while showcasing our technical capabilities.”
The V12-engined T.50 features a mid-engine and rear-wheel-drive layout will produce a standard 650hp and be capable of 12,100rpm, the highest-revving engine ever used in a production car. It adopts the three-seat layout that Murray pioneered in his acclaimed McLaren F1 design. A unique airflow management system will include a rear-mounted 400mm ground-effect fan and six aero modes that will optimise the car for different scenarios to balance traction and outright performance. Only 100 models will be produced, with each costing in excess of £2m before taxes. Deliveries are set to commence in January 2022.
