Gordon Murray Automotive T50 Hypercar is closer to production than ever before. However, safety concerns must be addressed before the customer’s car can be delivered and the way it is done is wild. This T50 jumps, bumps, and breaks in the process.
The Dario franchise took us through experiments that, in this case, focused on calibrating car airbag systems. Many will remember how sensitive the airbags of some sports cars were in the past. A notorious video shows a camera side airbag being deployed when a driver crosses a Rumble Strip, a common occurrence on a racetrack.
This is one of the reasons why this type of test is so important and shows why many of the tests shown in this video focus on the effects on vehicle suspension and underbody. T50 jet over holes, washboard roads and much more during data collection. There is even a test where the supercar is driven on a hard metal plate and results in a broken tie rod.

Still, almost nothing dramatic in this video is that at the moment the T50 XP1 development vehicle is driven directly into and above a long pebble hill. As a result, the test vehicle sits on top of a hill, its front wheels and tires float in the air, and its nose points toward the sky.
The figure shown in our main photo shows the T50 flying over an obstacle that is related to the franchise “wooden ramp for your BMX”. Fortunately, the car does not suffer any major damage anywhere and it has a glorious future ahead of it.
Once tested, the XP1 used here will end up as a training tool for the service team and after that, it will end up at the Gordon Murray Automotive Museum.
