Supercar from the creator of McLaren F1 will be the easiest among competitors

The GMA T.50 coupe from the former technical director of McLaren and one of the authors of the legendary F1 differs from its competitors not only in the system of active ground effect with a 400 mm fan, but also in ultra-low weight.

The company claims that the two-door is one third lighter than conventional supercars. In contrast to other automakers, to assess the power ratio of T.50, Murray uses the concept of weight-to-power (WTPR), that is, the ratio of the mass of a car to the power of its power unit. Note that the dynamics of a car depends on WTPR, and if you decrease the figure by a couple of times, then the acceleration time “up to a hundred” will also decrease by two.

It is known that T.50 is equipped with a 3.9-liter V12 Cosworth-GMA with a block angle of 65 degrees, complemented by a 48-volt starter-generator. The unit develops 650 hp, so the power density of the supercar is 663 forces per ton. If we compare, then a car weighing 1436 kg and with a similar power ratio should have at its disposal 950 hp. Note that the carbon fiber monocoque supercar weighs about 150 kg.
