The T.50 coupe of Gordon Murray, who built the McLaren F1 supercar, will be equipped with the lightest and most responsive V12 engine ever installed on a road car.

As noted, the motor will spin up to 12,100 rpm and develop 654 hp. Peak torque of 466 Nm is achieved at 9000 rpm. At the same time, 70% are available from 2000 rpm. The power unit spins up to maximum speed in a third of a second. The transmission will be a 6-speed manual transmission.

For the manufacture of the cylinder block, an aluminum alloy was used. The lightweight crankshaft weighs 13 kg. It is worth noting the presence of titanium components. The engine weighs 178 kg – a record for a V12. The checkpoint pulls another 80.5 kg.

The official premiere of the T.50 supercar should take place on 4 August this year.

In addition, it was recently noted that details have appeared about the receiver of the Lamborghini Aventador supercar. As noted in the Italian company, the new generation Aventador will be presented as a serial supercar. That is, it will not be released in limited edition.
