A new V12-engined 'more-practical' GMA T.33 supercar is revealed

~More Practical V12~ Following the launch of the GMA T.50 supercar some time ago, the automotive company owned by Gordon Murray has launched a new supercar called the GMA T.33 which is no less cool than its predecessor.

The figure of the GMA T.33 seems to be continuing the work of its predecessor GMA T.50 as the second supercar product of the Gordon Murray Automotive as a UK-based global luxury brand dedicated to creating and manufacturing the world's greatest driving cars.
The GMA T.33 featured with GMA’s newly patented PBLC aero system uses theories developed on the T50 to enhance diffuser-induced underbody downforce by around 30% compared with rivals. (Picture from: Autocar)
"With the T.33 arrival, we have one clear goal: to recreate a timeless design. It has been designed and engineered to the same standards as the T.50 with a focus on driver, performance, light weight and pure design but the results are different," said Gordon Murray, the CEO of GMA.

Like its predecessor, the UK-based manufacturer will only produce the GMA T.33 in limited quantities of up to 100 units with a starting price tag of £1.37 millions (or approx Rp 26,4 billions). This new car from GMA is also equipped with a fierce naturally aspirated V12 engine by Cosworth.
The GMA T.33 is powered by a specially adapted version of GMA’s Cosworth-designed 3.9-litre V12 engine with even more low-speed torque but a slightly lower rev limit of 11,100 rpm. (Picture from: GridOto)
The engine named Cosworth GMA.2, has a capacity of 3,994 cc, which is said to be capable of spewing out power up to 615 hp at 10,500 rpm and 451 Nm of torque at 9,000 rpm. The an interesting thing about the machine is that its weight is claimed to be very light, which is only 178 kilograms which also can produce rotations of up to 11,100 rpm.
The GMA T33’s standard gearbox is an end-on stick-shift six-speed unit specially built by UK supplier Xtrac, but a paddle-shifter is optional. (Picture from: Autocar)
But of course the GMA's V12 engine loses power when compared to the Ferrari F8's V8 turbo engine which can produce a maximum power of up to 720 hp and 770 Nm of torque. But if with the car's claimed weight only 1,090 kilograms, of course the GMA T.33 has a better power-to-weight ratio of 564 hp/ton.
To be able to make the GMA T.33 run fast on the streets, the engine is combined with a 6-speed manual H-Pattern transmission system or the option Instantaneous Gear Shift (IGS). Meanwhile to support its performance, GMA did not forget to provide a new design steering wheel, Brembo Carbon Ceramic Material (CCM) brakes, and Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires. Indeed, as a limited production car, GMA also provided the customization services for the T.33 owners. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GORDON MURRAY AUTOMOTIVE | AUTOCAR | SLASH & GEAR ]
