Murray called the T.50 the “the ultimate roadgoing supercar.” So why is there a new version of it? Well, the McLaren F1 designer says that he “always dreamed of taking it one step further… to build a version that will deliver an on-track driving experience like no other car in history.” But this isn’t just a modified version of the T.50; it’s not a car that they decided to make to generate more income. Instead, this is a car that was always meant to be, not an afterthought, and there are benefits to this.
“When we created the McLaren F1 GTR, it was developed from the F1 road car. From its inception, the T.50s Niki Lauda, though, was designed in parallel with the T.50. For the T.50 our target was clear, to make the best driver’s car for the road. With the T.50s Niki Lauda, it was equally clear, to make it the best driver’s car for the track.”
