The end shot of THREE T50'S side by side on the Millbrook banking is one of the most spine tingling things I've seen in awhile! No words! ^^^^

WTF happened to this page? Gordon Murray would be disgusted! The PREMIER place for automotive knowledge reduced to this? Let's see if we can get it back on track!

tension escalating within the eu already ? :)

if you know, you know

  • Czech Republic Will Not Recognise The Taliban 'under Any Circumstances'

  • U.S. could work with Taliban against terrorists, Pentagon says

  • Moscow: "Taliban" is not a legitimate Afghan government according to international standards

The Czech Republic Will Fight The EU's Combustion Engine Ban

A battle against "green fanatics."

The European Union has been at the forefront of pushing for a combustion-engined vehicle sales ban in the not-so-distant future. Countries like Germany and France are open to the idea while Norway has already embraced all-electric vehicles. The Nissan Leaf has been a best-seller there for years. As many industry analysts predict Europe will push forward with its EV agenda at a faster pace than the United States, they should take note that not all EU member nations are in favor of the plan. The Czech Republic is perhaps the best example.

Bloomberg reports that Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis has no intention of abandoning gasoline and diesel-powered vehicles by 2025, a goal stated in a recent EU proposal.

"We will not agree with the ban on selling fossil-fuel-powered cars," he said. "It's not possible. We can't dictate here what green fanatics devised in the European Parliament."

Unlike other smaller EU member states, the Czech Republic carries some serious weight. It's one of the world's biggest vehicle builders on a per-capita basis. It's also assuming the EU rotating presidency in the second half of next year. The country that borders Germany's east side is not afraid of using its economic and political clout. However, the country is not completely against EVs. It is in favor of a charging infrastructure but refuses to subsidize the production.

The Czechs have a long history of cars dating back over a century. In fact, nearly a third of the country's economy comes from the auto industry. The Volkswagen Group's Skoda brand is Czech-founded and today has two factories in the country. Hyundai and Toyota also have factories there. Of course, a different Czech government could get voted into office and reverse the current one's policies.

That may not have a chance to happen because the VW Group, Hyundai, and Toyota are all pressing ahead with electric vehicles. If the Czech Republic wants to retain their business, the country's politicians may have no choice but to change their position.

This, Evija or Valkyrie?! :)

The Mclaren F1 achieved a peak velocity of 242.956MPH at Ehra Lessien.

My updated calculations show the T50 has the potentiality to exceed that figure. Aerodynamically and power wise.

It's completely dependant on gearing which I have no access to.

Time will tell.

Quote>"It is set to beat its predecessor on mass, weighing a claimed (and impossible-sounding) 2174 pounds. If that holds true, the T.50 would have a power-to-weight ratio of 3.3 pounds per horsepower, some 13 percent better than a McLaren Senna."

Jesus Christ! If you talk to me in my language (Haha!) it makes all the difference. The T50 from an engineering viewpoint was always impeccably very impressive. The asethetics for me individually were a slight letdown, but that situation is improving rapidly. I want to see a metallic deep red or purple one!

So I've listened very intently to both the GMA T50 V12 and the Aston Martin V12 on repeated occasions. The Aston Martin Valkyrie possibly because of the extra cubic capacity just sounds much DEEPER and PURER.

Only way I can describe it. And there's nothing else to say.

Is this going to beat the McLaren F1? It depends on the performance aspect. This will be slower than the McLaren F1 after 130 mph. I suspect it will be as fast as a C7 Corvette ZR1 and a 991 GT2 RS.

Next acceleration. That's going to be more involved and difficult. :)

So after searching, quote>

"Just how fast is the new T.50? Says Murray: “Top speed is not important, but we estimate about 230 mph. That’s a bit slower than the F1 due to the extra downforce.”

So not actually that much different from my calculations. The downforce element is the difference. I know SSC with the stunningly beautiful Tuatara stated a corrected figure at maximum speed due to this. Let's correct it and see what we get!

EDIT: SSC Tuatara raises from 0.279 to 0.314 C/D factor due to downforce at highest speeds. The difference between the two is negligible as is the resulting speed differential.

So calculated top speed included 86% surface area for frontal figure and corrected weight to include driver and fuel and 15.9% drivetrain transmission loss the calculated top speed is 240MPH subject to gearing- currently unknown.

*C/D was theorised as worst case scenario as this is completely unavailable.

He doesn't "care" about performance statistics and that's fine. I however like them them so we can have a look at performance figures. :)

Now Murray has released details of a track only T50 and the stats are ridiculous

What are the odds that Jay Leno (Gordon Murray's biggest fanboy) has not already pre-ordered the car? I would say less than 0%.

Apparently 2/3rds of the cars are already pre-sold.

Finally a real lightweight car! Very nice. All the big players claim to use lightweight materials but in the end the cars almost all the cars are above 1500 kg... Any details known about the tire options available?
