Imagine for a moment you are Gordon Murray. Ian Gordon Murray to be precise and for reasons that will shortly become clear. You have been designing cars for precisely 50 years, at a rate of better than one for every single one of them.
Thank Frankel it's Friday: Gordon Murray's latest golden egg
Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
