In 2022, sales of all Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) supercars planned for production in 2023 and 2024 reached 100%.
Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) announced that it sold all of its T.33 coupe supercars, each costing £1.37m before local taxes. Customers from around the globe have secured their allocation of the exclusive 100-unit production run. The T.33 was only revealed publicly at the end of January 2022. The previously announced T.50 and T.50s Niki Lauda also sold out with production only starting early 2022.
Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) Sales and Production Statistics
Gordon Murray Automotive intends to guarantee exclusivity by strictly limiting production runs of any model variant to a maximum of 100 cars. GMA plans to achieve full federal homologation so that the cars may be driven in the USA as well.
Thus far GMA production and sales — as all cars were sold within days of their announcement (the T.50 within 48 hours) and well in advance of actual production — are as follows:
- T.50 supercar: 100 cars — first deliveries planned for early 2022
- T.50s Niki Lauda track-focused supercar: 25 cars — production to start early 2023
- T.33 supercar coupe: 100 cars — production to start in 2024
Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) Car Prices in 2022

- £3.1 / $4.2 million for the T.50s Niki Lauda
- £1.37 / $1.85 million for the T.33
Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) Car Auction Prices
At this stage, prices are fairly irrelevant as all cars have already sold. It will only become interesting again once the first cars hit the second-hand market and especially public auctions where the prices paid are clear to all.
Sadly, many GMA cars will never be seen in public. Limited production run supercars such as the Porsche 918 and McLaren P1 are often kept at delivery mileage to sell for a quick profit at auction. The first cars to reach auction often double or even triple the price of the new cars but prices often weaken after the first excitement. Ford GTs trade very often at auction in the USA, as soon as the two-year limit is reached.
The most famous road car that Gordon Murray is associated with — the McLaren F1 of the mid-1990s — is one of the most expensive cars in the world two decades on. Only 106 were ever made. Four have sold at public auction for more than $10 million (plus many more privately) with the model record $20,465,000 paid for a 1995 McLaren F1 at the Gooding Pebble Beach auction in 2021 — at the time of the sale, the thirteenth most-expensive car ever sold at auction (in nominal terms).

About Gordon Murray Automotive
Gordon Murray Automotive creates exclusive low-volume sports cars – the T.50 supercar will be the brand’s first model with customer cars built from January 2022. The company is a sister company to Gordon Murray Design and was first announced in November 2017 during an exhibition, named ‘One Formula’, which celebrated Murray’s 50 years of car design.
About Professor Gordon Murray CBE
Having spent 20 years as Technical Director in two Formula One teams from 1969-1990 Gordon Murray has a wealth of technical, design and engineering experience. At Brabham he was instrumental in two world championship wins (1981 and 1983) before three consecutive championship wins with McLaren Racing (1988, 1989 and 1990). In 1990 – after 50 Grand Prix wins – Gordon moved away from Formula One to concentrate on establishing a new company for the group, McLaren Cars Limited.
His first project there, the F1 road car, is still regarded as one of the world’s best-engineered cars. A racing version won two world sports car championships and the Le Mans 24-hour race in 1995. McLaren Cars then completed several other successful projects culminating in the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.
Gordon left McLaren in 2005 to set up Gordon Murray Design Ltd (in 2007), of which he is Chairman. The innovative British company is a world leader in automotive design, and reverses the current industry trend for sub-contracting by having a complete in-house capability for design, prototyping, and development.
In 2017, Gordon Murray Design celebrated the company’s 10-year anniversary along with that of the iStream® manufacturing process at a special event, named ‘One Formula’. Gordon also marked the 25th production anniversary of the McLaren F1 road car, and his 50th year of design and engineering.
In May 2019, Professor Murray was made a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, in recognition of his contributions to the motorsport and automotive sectors over the past 50 years.
