A new ultra-compact city car designed by Formula One engineer Gordon Murray is smaller than a Smart car, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in efficiency, averaging 74 MPG.
The T.25 is a well-designed vehicle. The 4-feet-wide by eight-feet-long car features a customizable interior that can be configured in six ways to seat up to two passengers in the rear or be used as storage space. The car has a turning radius of only six feet, making it highly maneuverable and it takes from it's F1 roots by featuring a central driving position and central instrumentation and controls.
But of course, it's no race car. The T.25 has a max speed of 80 mph and, unlike expensive F1 supercars, the price tag is only $9,000.
Murray has also created an all-electric counterpart called the T.27 with a range of 80-100 miles and price tag of about $18,000.
Get these things out of the "design" world, and into consumers hands!
