Gordon Murray Automotive has unveiled the convertible version of the T.33 supercar, the T.33 Spider. A limited run of only 100 units is planned, each priced at approximately $2.2 million.
The T.33 Spider, the second offering from the UK-based supercar manufacturer, boasts a convertible design and is equipped with two detachable roof panels, retaining the elegance of the coupe.
Built on a lightweight carbon fibre monocoque, the T.33 Spider also incorporates carbon body panels to minimize weight.
In spite of the supercar’s sleek exterior, the T.33 Spider incorporates a Passive Boundary Layer Control (PBLC) system, utilizing underbody ducting and a rear diffuser to deliver aerodynamic efficiency superior to that of typical ground effects supercars. Additionally, it is equipped with an active rear spoiler and a carbon roof scoop.
Mirroring the simplicity and functionality of the coupe, the Spider’s interior features a sporty steering wheel with a single, sizable, analog tachometer in the center and Alcantara-trimmed carbon seats.
Under the hood, the T.33 Spider is powered by GMA’s 3.9-liter V12 engine, developed by Cosworth, generating 609 hp @ 10,250 rpm, with 90% of the peak torque (399 lb-ft) available between 4,500-10,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
