Motorsport commentator and race car driver, Dario Franchitti, recently took the GMA T.33 mule car ‘James’ for its inaugural spin around the challenging Hill Route at Millbrook Proving Ground. This test vehicle, a precursor to the T.33 Spider, embodies the pinnacle of automotive design and engineering envisioned by Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA).

The T.33 Spider represents the culmination of Gordon Murray’s quest to create the world’s most exquisite and high-performing two-seat supercar. With its innovative design featuring two removable roof panels, the Spider promises an immersive driving experience unlike any other. Inspired by the timeless elegance of 1960s sports cars, the T.33 Spider seamlessly blends classic aesthetics with cutting-edge technology.

Underneath its sleek exterior lies a wealth of advanced features, including state-of-the-art aerodynamics and a lightweight carbon fiber body. Powering the T.33 Spider is the renowned Cosworth GMA.2 naturally aspirated V12 engine, delivering an impressive 607 horsepower at a breathtaking 10,250 rpm, with peak torque of 333 lb-ft at 6,750 rpm. Remarkably, the V12 engine can rev up to an astonishing 11,100 rpm, showcasing its extraordinary performance capabilities. And the sound… ohhhhh, that’s the best part!

Crafted around the iStreamĀ® Ultralight carbon fiber monocoque technology, the T.33 Spider boasts exceptional torsional rigidity, ensuring unparalleled driving dynamics. Production of this exceptional vehicle will be strictly limited to just 100 units, each meticulously hand-assembled to guarantee exclusivity and offer a personalized customer experience. The T.33 Spider will be manufactured at GMA’s state-of-the-art facility located in Highams Park, Windlesham, Surrey, underscoring the company’s commitment to excellence. Essentially, the T.33 is an evolution of the T.50, which many have seen in action in its production form.

With its introduction, the T.33 Spider joins the illustrious lineup of GMA’s automotive masterpieces, including the T.33 and the track-focused T.50s, further solidifying the brand’s position as a leader in automotive innovation and craftsmanship.
