Gordon Murray Automotive has introduced a new racing version of its T.50 supercar badged ‘S’.

Limited to just 25 units, it follows on from the sale of the road-going T.50, which sold out within 48 hours of the global premiere.

Priced at £3.1m before taxes, the new car – codenamed T.50s – weighs in at just 890kg while its V12 engine has been stoked to produce more power than the regular T.50.

It also features a new 1,758mm-wide wing mounted to the rear of the car which works alongside the rear-mounted fan – a performance addition which featured on the regular car – as well as with a new front splitter, underbody aerofoil and adjustable diffusers which, together, are capable of generating more than 1,500kg of downforce.

Gordon Murray said: “With an unwavering focus on performance, and free from road-going legislation and maintenance considerations, the T.50s will achieve astonishing performance

Toyota Previews the Return of Formula Drift With Cool Stop-Motion Papercraft Cars You Can Build

Team owner Stephan Papadakis’ papercraft course—as called by real-life commentator Leigh Diffey—is a little more dangerous than the full-size version, though. Your car runs the very real risk of getting smashed by a camshaft or cut in half by a band saw, plus there’s no way that maskless crowd of spark plugs is practicing proper social distancing. 

Best of all, you can build Papadakis’ papercraft GR Supra at home. The team posted the PDFs here of the car with or without Papadakis’ black-and-yellow Rockstar livery, and are encouraging folks to tag them back with their own home-based mayhem with the hashtag #PaperDrift. 

The lone downside is that the Toyota Corolla Hatchback and 86 drift cars weren’t included in the papercraft PDF kit. You, bored person reading this article, should right this historic wrong and give us the tiny paper hatchback we deserve. (Link us the PDF in the comments if

No specifics have been released as yet, but the system will apparently be “exclusively designed, and custom tuned to the vehicle’s luxurious cabin”.

As implied in the teaser video above, the system promises to feature McIntosh’s trademark blue lights and aluminium frames. Of course, we can expect the company’s typical calibre of sound quality too.

McIntosh’s previous in-car systems include both OEM and aftermarket fitments. At the start of the century, it developed custom systems for Harley Davidson’s special edition motorcycles, as well as the 100th anniversary edition of
