30-second news: Gordon Murray launches low-volume car firm

McLaren F1 designer Gordon Murray has announced he is launching a niche car company.

A sister to Gordon Murray Design, Gordon Murray Automotive “will demonstrate a return to the design and engineering principles that have made the McLaren F1 such an icon,” said the South African car designer.

Cars made by the firm will use Murray’s iStream production process, combining lightweight F1 technology with low emissions and high safety standards.

We’ll find out more details on the new Gordon Murray car on Friday 3 November at a ‘One Formula’ exhibition, celebrating 50 years of Gordon Murray car design.
