Gordon Murray, the head designer/engineer for the McLaren F1 supercar and numerous Formula 1 cars for McLaren and Brabham has launched his own consultancy. His first project: a city car.
I recall when Murray was writing a column for Car that he owns a Smart Fortwo (which he fitted larger front tires to) and a '57 T-Bird. It makes me salivate to imagine what his fertile mind will develop for a city car.
