Rowan Atkinson is, reportedly, selling his. And the expected price at the auction is ~ 10 million!

Can't believe it will go for that much. But F1 is appreciating like crazy, that's for sure.

That race was sweet. Nice to see the F1 kick butt like that!
Lightweight, tons of power, center-driving position, RWD, manual-transmission... It doesn't really get much better than that :D

If anything the guys at Best motoring certainly no how to shift, Same with Carlos Lago, it's a damn shame in most Vs videos you see these people make these slow arse shifts that are slow enough to make something corrode.

But, I've always been extremely skeptical bout BM, especially concerning Japanese cars

Damn those manual shifts were lightning quick

@raul, Yeah I agree.
Even if you just updated the tires/brakes on the F1 I bet it would be insanely fast.. It's just soo light, yet powerful, even by today's standards.

if the ring time is correct, 7:11, I would like to see how fast it would clock with a modern bmw n/a engine and upto date brakes.

Anyone else see Jay Leno take the engine out of his F1 recently?
He posted a video up of it. Definitely worth a look-see :)

Whoops, I meant a 4-seater in the Evora, not a 4-door. However, they did make the "Eterne" concept sedan, which I think they may actually put into production. They're in the position Porsche once was, and are in desperate need of something to put them back on the map.

I know the interview Fifth Gear made with Gordon Murray. But it seems she was more interested in his F1 than in the T25. :D

19% of porsches total sells this year were 911s, 52% the cayenne, cayman/boxster 16% and the panamera 13%

so yeah, manufactures pretty much rely on practical cars if they want to survive.

Oh great, what an improvement over the F1... From kings to servants...

"and even Lotus made a four-door."

Wait. Either you're kidding, or I completely missed something... What is the Lotus saloon? Do you mean the old Lotus Omega Carlton?

@ CoolShirtGuy: I like it, I think many car makers make a mistake when just focusing on building one car, It's good McLaren is trying to be more diverse.

It is a radical departure, but everyone's doing it/has done it in one form or another. BMW is making a minivan, Aston Martin has a sedan, Porsche was saved from the brink of bankruptcy by an SUV, Ferrari made an AWD 4-seater, Mercedes has a small family car in the A-class, and even Lotus made a four-door.

And that's not even mentioning all the hybrids and electrics that are cropping up now. If you'd walked into a Ferrari gathering, say, 10 years ago and told everyone that their favorite automaker would make a Hypercar with a hybrid powertrain, you'd have gotten jumped. Or at least had a few scalding-hot mochachinos thrown in your face.

People are starting to care less and less about performance, and more about things like efficiency and practicality. Sports cars isn't as big of a market as it used to be. Just ask Porsche. They sell more sports cars than any other automaker by far, yet ever since the Cayenne SUV was introduced, it's been their primary moneymaker. If I'm not mistaken, I think just last year the Cayenne alone, in its various trim levels, made up over 60% of Porsche's total sales worldwide. They branched out and went from hanging by a thread, to becoming pound-for-pound the world's most profitable automaker. So it's only logical that others follow suit and attempt to replicate that success.

@ Fangio Man: That is the most dramatic departure from a car company's norm I have ever seen! I know McLaren for making supercars, but the T25 is an economy car! It reminds me of cars like the Smart ForTwo and Toyota IQ, (known in America as the Scion IQ).

@Fangio Man
The "T.25" is a huge departure of what we're used to from Mr Murray.
But I hear the big news with that car is that he's re-invented the way it's manufactured and shipped out. Fifth Gear did an interview with him a little while back.

I guess all of you know who designed this masterpiece, the McLaren F1: Gordon Murray. He designed great cars for manufacturers like Brabham and McLaren.

But his new creation is beyond good and evil! It is called Gordon Murray Design T.25! Designed for ecological efficiency. It does not look very spectacular, but it satisfies the target it was made for.

I did not get the exactly meaning of your comment, but if you meant this cars quality is bad, you are wrong.
