Murray's city car unveiled

The man behind the McLaren F1 has officially gone green. Gordon Murray Design and venture capital firm Mohr Davidow Ventures recently unveiled the T.25 City Car, which they say is "a major breakthrough in city car design in the areas of weight, footprint, safety, usability and efficiency". The T.25 City Car was developed using Gordon Murray Design's iStream manufacturing process, which is said to reduce "full lifecycle C02 damage" while increasing production efficiencies. According to the company, this means the vehicle was designed in such a way as to minimise the environmental impacts of manufacturing while still producing a quality vehicle at reduced manufacturing costs. As for the T.25 itself, Autoblog Green reports that this über-small vehicle will be powered by a three-cylinder engine that can get it to more than 90kph in about 16 seconds. The T.25 is small enough to be able to park at 90 degrees to the curb, offering the ability to park up to three of these cars in one parallel parking space. It will also be ultra-lightweight and hold between one and three people.
