Shell has teamed up with Gordon Murray and engine specialist Osamu Goto to create an ultra-compact and ultra-efficient city car.

Dubbed Project M, the model is being billed as a simple and practical city car which uses lightweight engineering and a highly efficient internal combustion engine. Additional information is limited but the car will be unveiled in November before being tested in real-world conditions.

According to Shell's Vice President of Lubricants Technology, Selda Gunsel, "Since working with Gordon Murray Design team on the T25 car in 2010, we have given further thought on how to deliver a complete rethink of the car, using as little energy as possible. We believe this Shell car, will demonstrate how efficient a car can be when Shell works in harmony with vehicle and engine makers during design and build, supplying fuels and lubricants technical expertise."
