  • What a pity that would have been interesting. However I have standards.. unlike the presenter you still strangely employ. I will not watch anything that distorter of facts and truth (when not outright lying) presents. Everything he presents he reduces the BBC's standards for truth and accuracy.

  • Why limit to just 25 cars? It keeps the price mega high and means the cars will not be driven so much - as lots of people will be buying them as an investment. Gordon is the David Attenborough of cars, he's so nice, few people seem to have asked him that question?

  • The biggest failure of new NSX was Honda didn't hire Mr. Murray on to lead the design that car. If they had beg Mr. Murray to design the new NSX, it would continue the legend of NSX and even surpass the status of original McLaren F1.

  • There are several dozen Gordon Murray interviews around on video, and to my point of view this one is by far the most informative. Through Murray's discussion of his collection, you learn not only how Murray thinks in terms of design and engineering decisions, but how he came to appreciate what he values.

  • Gordon Murray is one of those rare individuals that you could simply pull up a chair to and listen to every word that comes out of his head for days on end. The knowledge and wealth of experience he speaks with is fascinating, and he conveys it with such an unassuming and modest way he could be talking about an Austin Maestro and I would still hang on every word.

    Bob808Bob80820 dagar sedan
  • As much I respect Gordon Murray as a package engineer, he is no exterior designer, and it shows. You can tell that he does not have a concept of automotive exterior design when he talks about the SLR. The SLR is a beautiful exterior design, it wanted to bring Mercedes design into the 00s and it was quite successful in doing that. Some of the exterior design concepts it features resisted well into some years ago. The fact he does not like it it's just because all he knows are racing cars and 70s style exteriors, so anything that does not match his vision, it's not considered. He did not really follow innovation in form, while he does innovate in the powertrain and aerodynamics. The T50 is essentially a McLaren F1 with a different powertrain concept, that influences the exterior design in some way. He says he likes styling, but actually he likes his styling, the styling of his era. And by the way, styling is the wrong word for it, it is exterior design: styling has been somehow a deprecative term in history, underlining a tacky approach to exteriors and form. But again, he is not an exterior designer, cause he reuses exterior ideas over and over without much innovation.

Its like when people say the mclaren senna is ugly but to me its absolutely stunning becuase of how much purpose it serves! Nothing on that car is designed to be ‘pretty’. Only to go as fast as it can for its price bracket
