Gordon Murray Design has released the first images of the T.25 City Car, ahead of it’s unveiling at the Smith School’s World Forum on Enterprise and the Environment.

Looking like a futuristic Smart fortwo, the T.25 measures 2.4m long, 1.3m wide, and 1.6m tall. It has a McLaren F1-style three person seating arrangement and a “world leading 6 meter turning circle.”

Power is provided by a 660cc three-cylinder engine with 51 hp and 42 lb-ft of torque. Connected to a five-speed semi-automatic transmission, the 1268 lb T.25 accelerates from 0-62 mph in 16.2 seconds and has a limited top speed of 90 mph. While it’s not fast, the car is expected to achieve a combined 74 mpg.

If that isn’t green enough for you, GMD has previously released specifications for the T.27 Electric City Car. It boasts a 12 kWh lithium-ion battery and a small electric motor with 25 kW, or 34 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque. The powertrain enables the T.27 to accelerate from 0-62 mph in less than 15 seconds, before topping out at 65 mph. The 1,500 lb ECC will have a range of 80-100 miles.

According to Gordon Murray, “We are very privileged to have been asked to show T.25 publicly for the first time at the World Forum as the aims of our Company are very much aligned with those of the Smith School and therefore this global event.”
