The T.25 features a 660cc three-cylinder engine with 51 hp (38 kW / 52 PS) and 57 Nm (42 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 16.2 seconds.
Gordon Murray Design has released the first images of the T.25 City Car, ahead of it's unveiling at the Smith School's World Forum on Enterprise and the Environment, later today.
Looking like a futuristic Smart fortwo, the T.25 measures 2.4m long, 1.3m wide, and 1.6m tall. It has a McLaren F1-style three person seating arrangement and a "world leading 6 meter turning circle."
Power is provided by a 660cc three-cylinder engine with 51 hp (38 kW / 52 PS) and 57 Nm (42 lb-ft) of torque. Connected to a five-speed semi-automatic transmission, the 575 kg (1268 lb) T.25 accelerates from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 16.2 seconds and has a limited top speed of 145 km/h (90 mph). While it's not fast, the car is expected to achieve a combined 74 mpg-imp (3.83 L/100km) while emitting 86 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
If that isn't green enough for you, GMD has previously released specifications for the T.27 Electric City Car. It boasts a 12 kWh lithium-ion battery and a small electric motor with 25 kW (34 hp / 34 PS) and 875 Nm (645 lb-ft) of torque. The powertrain enables the T.27 to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in less than 15 seconds, before topping out at 105 km/h (65 mph). The 680 Kg (1,500 lb) ECC will have a range of 129-161 kilometers (80-100 miles).
According to Gordon Murray, "We are very privileged to have been asked to show T.25 publicly for the first time at the World Forum as the aims of our Company are very much aligned with those of the Smith School and therefore this global event."
