The GMA T.33 sits under the T.50 and T.50S in the lineup.

Gordon Murray Automotive has been known to do things a bit differently compared to other supercar manufacturers. The T.50’s ultra lightweight approach, along with its nat-asp V12 and manual gearbox has already made it an icon. Now, GMA has added a brand new model to the lineup – the T.33, and it is just as unique. 

GMA T 33 Side Profile

The T.33 is based on an all-new carbon and aluminium architecture, and follows the same lightweight design approach which results in a kerb weight of just 1090kg and a better power-to-weight ratio than a Mclaren F1! 

The engine is a Cosworth-sourced V12 that is related to the T.50’s unit, but features bespoke components and a (relatively) lower redline of 11,1000rpm. Peak power of 606.5bhp comes in at an astonishing 10,500rpm while 451Nm of torque is delivered at 9,000rpm. To improve everyday driveability, 75% of torque is available at just 2,500rpm.

The engine is mated to a six-speed manual ’box as standard which GMA says, at 82kg, is the lightest supercar manual transmission. A six-speed paddle shift transmission is also on offer which is even lighter at 78kg and yes, GMA says it is the lightest paddle-shift supercar gearbox in the world, while also delivering the ‘world’s fastest supercar gear change’. 

In terms of aero, the T.33 is more restrained than the bonkers T.50, ditching the rear fan, though it still uses the trick ground effect and a PBLC (Passive Boundary Layer Control) system. This eliminates the need for complex cuts and vents of modern day supercars, resulting in a clean yet aero efficient design. There is an active rear spoiler which deploys automatically, or at the touch of a button, and also doubles-up as an air brake.

Inside, the T.33 is kept simple. So simple that there isn’t a single touch screen in the cabin. Instead, there’s a focus on having high-quality tactile controls that don’t distract from the driving experience. There is still Apple CarPlay and Android Auto equipped as standard. The T.33 also has conventional seating for two, instead of the T.50’s central driving position flanked by two seats.

GMA T 33 Interior

GMA will be building only 100 examples of the T.33 and prices start at over Rs 13 crore (before Indian taxes and duties). The T.33 will be a ‘global supercar’ and will be offered in both left- and right-hand drive configurations and will undergo federal homologation. Customers will be offered extensive customisation options to make sure no two T.33s are identitcal.
