  • Gordon Murray Automotive’s T.33 V12 Spider will be unveiled by Professor Gordon Murray CBE and The Duke of Richmond at the 80th Members’ Meeting on Saturday 15 April 2023.
  • Dario Franchitti MBE will drive GMA’s T.50 on track for the Gordon Murray Parade on Saturday morning.
  • 80th Members’ Meeting will take place Saturday 15 – Sunday 16 April at the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit.

Gordon Murray Automotive’s T.33 V12 Spider is set to make its public debut at the 80th Members’ Meeting on Saturday 15 April. The Spider will be officially unveiled by Professor Gordon Murray and The Duke of Richmond at 09:20 on the Pit Lane Lawn at the Goodwood Motor Circuit.

This latest version of the T.33, which is strictly limited to 100 examples, is a unique supercar that combines a timeless design with an immersive driving experience, featuring removable roof panels and a deployable rear window. The T.33 Spider offers an outstanding ride with superb handling and agility setting a new benchmark for open-top supercars.

Taking centre stage at the Members’ Meeting this year, the T.33 Spider is engineered to be the world’s most accomplished two-seat open supercar and has stayed true to GMA’s classic designs. The impressive supercar is powered by the Cosworth GMA.2 V12 engine, an all-aluminium, naturally-aspirated, dry-sump unit designed for light weight and high specific output.

Two Gordon Murray Heritage vehicles will join the T.33 Spider at the event including the 1967 IGM Ford (T.1), which Murray built and tuned a Ford 105E engine for racing purposes, and the legendary Duckhams Ford LM (T.3), which Gordon designed as a 3-litre prototype for the 1972 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Three Cosworth GMA V12 engines will be on display including the T.50: COSWORTH GMA V12, T.50s: COSWORTH GMA.S V12 and the T.33: COSWORTH GMA.2 V12.

Following the official unveil, Dario Franchitti MBE will take to the iconic Goodwood Motor Circuit in the T.50 supercar. Two of his three laps will be accompanied by live commentary from Dario himself and during the final lap, spectators will be able to listen solely to the V12 engine’s peerless sounds. The T.50 will also be driven on track on Sunday 16 April at 09:00.

Professor Gordon Murray CBEWhen drawing a car I imagine what it's going to feel like to sit in, and how it will feel to drive. So from the first sketch of the T.33 Spider I knew that, with its open cockpit and the incredible Cosworth GMA.2 V12 engine right behind you, the T.33 Spider would deliver a truly involving driving experience that’s quite unlike anything else. There really is no better place to show and demonstrate the T.50 story and debut our all-new T.33 Spider”.

The Duke of Richmond We are thrilled that for the second year in a row Gordon and his team have chosen the Goodwood Members’ Meeting as the place to launch their latest model. The car looks exceptional and I know our members and their guests will be excited to see it on the day – I certainly can’t wait to unveil it alongside Gordon”.
