Lightweight and driving pleasure to remain key focus areas on Gordon Murray’s new car

Lightweight and driving pleasure to remain key focus areas on Gordon Murray’s new car

Gordon Murray Automotive has made it official that it will build an all-new car, under the new IGM brand. The car commemorates 50 years of Gordon Murray car design and was announced at the start of the ‘One Formula’ exhibition that gathered 40 models penned by the legendary designer.

The new car will be Gordon Murray Automotive’s first model, with great attention to detail. Featuring the latest materials and technology, the car will focus on light weight and driving pleasure – inspired by the engineering principles of the McLaren F1. It will be built for contemporary driving conditions, and will incorporate some of the most advanced aerodynamics ever seen on a road car. 

The vehicle’s architecture will be based on a new version of Gordon Murray Design’s revolutionary iStream system, which was officially launched recently. ‘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 per cent 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 first car – the ‘T.1’ IGM Ford Special, which Murray raced in South Africa in 1967 and 1968. The IGM brand will feature on all future in-house projects built by Gordon Murray Automotive.
