The T25, Gordon Murray's take on revolutionizing urban transport – and perhaps driving itself – the same way he did with supercars with his McLaren F1, is almost ready for center stage. Now that the design and engineering has been completed, T25 prototypes are expected on the roads in a few weeks for the next phase of testing.
The T25 is shorter, narrower, and lighter than even the smart fortwo, yet rumors say that it can carry more weight. Once the platform is proven, Murray plans for it to support a range of vehicle types, from a city car to a pickup truck. And Murray has applied his new thinking to the car's manufacturing as well: his iStream build process eschews large, stamped parts, focusing on "simple base mechanicals" that promote model flexibility and small factory sizes.

        lol i would if we didnt have such hefty crash test standards. it's a pretty cool project if you find the interviews he's done, it'll be a lot different than anything out there in every way... just as the F1 was and is.

      I can't wait, as much as i love cars like the veyron, this excites me more, the prospect of a truely new sort of car, especially if he's still on board to flat pack it.

      Really looking forward to what he was able to come up with. Should be interesting I'm certain.

        I'm sure it will be pretty cool-looking, though.
