Gordon Murray – the designer of the McLaren F1 road car – has come up with this rather tasty looking number. This car is set to be released under the new IGM brand. The car will feature an emphasis on performance and dynamics and is particularly designed to offer the best in driving pleasure.
The vehicle’s architecture will be based on a new version of Gordon Murray Design’s revolutionary iStream system. ‘iStream superlight’ employs high-strength aluminium sections in place of the steel used in iStream and iStream Carbon. Its additional weight reduction over the current process delivers a body-in-white structure approaching 50% of the weight of stamped metal, while achieving new levels of rigidity, durability and platform flexibility.
The re-launch of the IGM brand celebrates 50 years of car design for Murray. The newly-revealed IGM logo is a re-design of the badging applied to Gordon Murray’s very first car – the ‘T.1’ IGM Ford Special, which Murray raced successfully in South Africa in 1967 and 1968. The IGM brand will feature on all future in-house projects built by Gordon Murray Automotive.
More information will be revealed regarding what is bound to be a fantastic sports or supercar as it becomes available.
