    If they’re thinking, and I’m sure they are, then that fan will be turn-off-able.

    Thinking more how low it will need to be for a sucker fan to help.
    Not so much "am I a streetsweeper/vacuum"

    They just need the side skirts to go low.

    Oh yeah. I didn't think of that. I was more thinking that you were concerned with it throwing rocks at pedestrians.

    But we've seen some seriously low track-focused hypercars in recent times, I don't think height will be too much of a problem for them.

    It's exciting. Looking forward to seeing what Gordon Murray has come up with this time. And what kind of statement is accepted by the use of a traditional manual transmission, which all the experts (self-imposed and otherwise) say is outdated and inferior.

    Visually, it already hasn't aged as well as the F1.

    From the article I read recently, most of the people that came to him to pre-order begged him to make it a traditional manual. He was originally planning for a sequential. Only one of his current customers does not know how to drive stick.

    The racing versions will be sequential, though.
    Get that weak shit off my track

    And he said, “Ok boomers,” and that was that.

    On this page: https://gordonmurrayautomotive.com/en/#home

    Scroll down a bit and you can see a video of Cosworth's engine test mule for the 3.9 litre V12 that will eventually sit in the back of the T.50.

    It is currently a 3-cylinder (presumably 975cc at that) which in the video briefly revs to 12,100 RPM and sounds amazing.

    It's interesting how they're making this car in this age using a fully naturally-aspirated engine, with no hybrid, turbo or electric boost.
