Gordon Murrays followup to the McLaren F1 will change everything

Exotic Cars Performance Cars Tags The McLaren Speedtail is like a private jet for the road Pretty much anyone with a passing interest in cars has heard of the McLaren F1. It’s still widely regarded by many — even some 25 years after its introduction — as the finest bit of automotive engineering ever done.The man behind it is named Gordon Murray, and before he endeavored to create the F1, he spent decades designing actual Formula One cars, some of the most successful ones in history. Fast forward to the present day, and he’s just announced his successor to the McLaren F1, and it looks like a real peach. It’s called the Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 and based on specs alone; it’ll be epic.Murray teased the design of the T.50 back in 2017 but we didn’t get many details until Wednesday when Gordon Murray Automotive released a video of Murray himself talking about his new $2.54 million technological terror. To start, the T.50 will feature many of the F1’s legendary design features, most notably a naturally aspirated V12 engine (this one revs to 12,000 rpm and will be built by Cosworth) and a manual gearbox. Also making an appearance are the F1’s center driving position and flanking seats for passengers. It also promises to be almost shockingly lightweight.For comparison, the McLaren F1 was ruthlessly engineered to get rid of every extra ounce of weight and tipped the scales at a featherweight 2,425 pounds. The T.50 was engineered with the same attention to detail, but with the advantage of more modern materials and construction techniques, and as such it will only weigh 2,160 pounds — around 50 pounds more than a Mazda Miata.One of the most interesting differences between the F1 and the T.50 comes in the way they use active aerodynamics. The F1 was one of the first road cars to use the technology back in the early 1990s, but the T.50 goes further by using the fan car technology pioneered by Murray on his Brabham BT46 Formula One car. This means that the T.50 will use ducted fans to actually physically suck the car down onto the road. Also, like the F1, there will only be around 100 T.50s built and most of them, if not all of them, are likely already sold — despite their stratospheric price tag.Murray’s lightness-above-all design ethos remains a refreshing antidote to a world where supercars are growing increasingly heavy and complex, with hybrid powertrains and all their added componentry. There is almost no doubt in our minds that once it’s built, the T.50 will go down as one of the greatest cars of all time. 1 Comment 2020 Volvo XC60 T8 Polestar Engineered first drive: Almost Super Trouper 2020 McLaren 720S Spider review: Treat yo self 2019 McLaren 600LT: Balanced and bonkers 16 Photos Share your voice Pennsylvania now home to first McLaren F1 service center in US Now playing: Watch this: More From Roadshow 10:35 McLaren read more

New theory on origin of the asteroid belt

center_img Astronomers identify oldest known asteroid family More information: Sean N. Raymond et al. The empty primordial asteroid belt, Science Advances (2017). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1701138AbstractThe asteroid belt contains less than a thousandth of Earth’s mass and is radially segregated, with S-types dominating the inner belt and C-types the outer belt. It is generally assumed that the belt formed with far more mass and was later strongly depleted. We show that the present-day asteroid belt is consistent with having formed empty, without any planetesimals between Mars and Jupiter’s present-day orbits. This is consistent with models in which drifting dust is concentrated into an isolated annulus of terrestrial planetesimals. Gravitational scattering during terrestrial planet formation causes radial spreading, transporting planetesimals from inside 1 to 1.5 astronomical units out to the belt. Several times the total current mass in S-types is implanted, with a preference for the inner main belt. C-types are implanted from the outside, as the giant planets’ gas accretion destabilizes nearby planetesimals and injects a fraction into the asteroid belt, preferentially in the outer main belt. These implantation mechanisms are simple by-products of terrestrial and giant planet formation. The asteroid belt may thus represent a repository for planetary leftovers that accreted across the solar system but not in the belt itself.

Heavy rains likely to lash North Bengal today

first_imgKolkata: There will be heavy to very heavy rainfall in North Bengal in the next 24 hours, predicts the Regional Meteorological Office in Alipore.

The water, which was flowing above the danger mark , has started receding and if it does not rain heavily, then locals will not be evacuated. The district administration in North Bengal has been asked to keep the disaster management teams ready. Meanwhile, many important roads in North Bengal including the state highways are under water due to torrential rain. The engineers of Irrigation and Waterways department are examining the embankments and emergency repair work are being carried out.Alipore weather office said that although it will rain in south Bengal, there will not be any relief from the discomfort factor. It rained in Kolkata in the afternoon. The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) held a high-level meeting attended by the senior officials to control waterlogging in some pocketsin Kolkata. Chief Minister Mamata banerjee had expressed her displeasure over the KMC’s failure to clear accumulated water from some streets in Behala on Sunday. She had telephoned mayor Sovan Chatterjee and asked him to take action. The agencies looking after the maintenance of the pumps have been asked to speed up work and install them at the earliest.last_img read more
