Gordon Murray Partners with Shell For An Innovative City Car

Gordon Murray partners with Shell and ex-F1 engineer Osamu Goto to revisit his T25 city car and present a new concept to be unveiled in November this year.

The “Shell car” will be a ground-up, total re-think of the Gordon Murray Design T.25 car and will represent a simple, yet clever global city car, incorporating numerous innovations in the fields of lightweight engineering, streamlining and driveline efficiency. The goal is to offer “maximum personal mobility while minimizing energy use helping people get around the world’s ever-more congested cities where, by 2050, up to three quarters of the world’s estimated nine billion people could be living”.

The Project M as it’s officially called will be the work of Shell’s Lubricant’s Technology Team, The Gordon Murray Design Group and engine specialist Geo Technology. That means that the development of the chassis, engine and lubricants will be completely integrated. The new concept will deliver a complete rethink of Gordon Murray’s T25 car we saw back in 2010 with the released drawing showing the rear-engined, three-seat layout to be retained.

The Project M is expected to make its first appearance at the Americas round of Shell Eco-Marathon.
