Gordon Murray CBE

Gordon MurrayGrowing up in South Africa, Gordon Murray CBE designed, built and raced his own sports car. The following year, he moved to the UK and joined the Brabham Formula One Team as Technical Director, winning two world championships (1981 and 1983) in his 17 years with the team.

In 1988, Gordon became Technical Director of McLaren Racing and three consecutive championship wins followed. After an impressive 50 Grand Prix wins, in 1990 he moved away from Formula One to establish McLaren Cars Limited. The company’s first project, the F1 Road Car is still regarded as the world’s best-engineered car. A racing version won two world sports car championships and the Le Mans 24-hour race on its first attempt in 1995. 

After leaving McLaren, he established a new company, Gordon Murray Design, and developed the innovative and disruptive automotive manufacturing technology, iStream®. Now, the process is fully industrialised and represents the first major step change in automotive manufacturing in 100 plus years.
