What’s all but known is that the next car will be called T.33, per patents filed by GMA a few months back and that it will sit below the T.50 in the range as a slightly more affordable model.
In spite of that, the bespoke Cosworth-engineered V12 engine from the T.50 is rumoured to carry over to T.33 in some form or another. Given that engine was a ground-up development by Cosworth for GMA, it would make sense for that expenditure to be spread across two models. Needless to say, anything with a GMA badge is almost a dead cert to conform to a high standard of engineering, lightweight and driver-focused principles.
It’s also expected that a few more – though not too many – T.33s will be built than the 100 T.50s mooted for production. That GMA is opening an all-new Technology Campus in Surrey with a dedicated manufacturing site for the new car two years from now goes some way to substantiating this. The new location in Highams Park, Windlesham, will be the result of a £50 million investment and will alongside manufacturing, feature design, development, heritage, test track and customer facilities.
