In 10 years of Gordon Murray Design he has masterminded most things automotive for clients, including sportscars, city cars, electric cars, off-road trucks, luxury cars and, most recently, the new Griffith for a reborn TVR company, all based around his disruptive iStream manufacturing process.
Also sure to be on show will be his first car, the IGM (for Ian Gordon Murray) Special clubman racer that he built, from scratch, in South Africa as a student in the mid 1960s. A replica of that first car made its debut at the Festival of Speed in 2017.
We asked him then what his favourite car was of the ones he has worked on: “The IGM Special is the most fun but I am most proud of the F1 GTR – to win Le Mans first time out with a GT car was a bit special.”
The cars assembled for his one-man retrospective will certainly show one of the most diverse motor industry careers ever, one that in terms of success on both road and track mirrors that of greats like Mercedes’ Rudi Uhlenhaut and Lotus’s Colin Chapman.
Now, after 50 years, is he about to stun us again?
