Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) has unveiled the T.33 Spider, a stunning version of the T.33 Coupe without a roof. Developed in parallel with the coupe, the Spider shares the same ultralight carbon fiber monocoque construction but has been engineered with greater torsional stiffness due to the absence of the roof structure. The T.33 Spider is a supercar like no other, with an exceptional aerodynamic design and unique features.

The T.33 Spider is powered by a 3.9l V12 engine, which delivers 617 hp at 10,500 rpm and goes on to an 11,100 rpm. This all-aluminium powerplant is designed according to motorsport principles in partnership with Cosworth to deliver an exhilarating driving experience. Leveraging all the experience acquired from a career designing ground-effect racing cars, Murray and his team developed the T.33 Spider's exceptional aerodynamics without resorting to the ostentatious ducts, skirts and splitters that are typically used in other supercars.

The powertrain of the T.33 Spider is semi-structural, with the rear suspension mounted directly to the transmission casing. The system features GMA's Inclined Axis Shear Mounting (IASM), which uses flexible mountings to deliver exactly the right amount of isolation required for refinement while at the same time enabling precise handling. Like the coupe, the Spider has all-round double wishbone suspension, made from lightweight aluminium. The high-pressure monotube dampers are of coil-over design and are also made from aluminium. The T.33 Spider uses an asymmetric wheel and tyre specification to deliver the traction and steering response demanded from the rear-wheel drive configuration, together with the minimum possible mass.

In conclusion, the T.33 Spider is a masterpiece of engineering, with a powerful and high-revving Cosworth V12 engine that delivers an exhilarating driving experience. With its exceptional aerodynamic design, ultralight carbonfibre monocoque construction, and unique features, the T.33 Spider is a true supercar like no other. Only 100 units will be produced, making it a rare and exclusive vehicle for discerning enthusiasts who appreciate exceptional performance and design.
