Professor Gordon Murray, Executive Chair, Gordon Murray Group “The company is growing in size and we have been on an unprecedented expansion since 2020. This announcement and the downsizing of our business is testament to that as we intend to continue and expand that success with growth. Furthermore.
“Gordon Murray Automotive is in a strong position. Our world-leading supercars, the recently announced T.50, T.50s and T.33 track cars are sold out. The T.50 in particular is in the final stages of development and will soon be in the hands of its first customers and there is much more exciting news to come.

We have a very talented and best-in-class team capable of working with a global customer base, transforming electric vehicles, connectivity and ultimately autonomous transportation. A groundbreaking project is in the works and we have plans to further increase our influence on global vehicle development and transformative manufacturing processes with the latest incarnation of iStream®.
