View pages from the Gordon Murray book

2019 Motoring Award nominee This two-volume blockbuster collaboration between Gordon Murray and Philip Porter was two years in the making. The books cover every single design Murray has created in his amazing 50-year career from Formula 1 to the McLaren F1 to more recent ground-breaking motor vehicles of all types. This is truly a landmark publication.

    Key points:

    • Covers every single one of Gordon Murray’s designs, from 1967 to the present day, including his fascinating ‘Ghost Cars’ – designed but never built – and the inside story of some of the greatest cars ever made, including the Brabham BT49, the McLaren MP4/4 and the McLaren F1.
    • Entertaining insight into the legendary Brabham BT46B ‘fan car’ that won the 1978 Swedish Grand Prix.
    • Looks at the revolutionary iStream production process and the next generation of automotive designs.
    • Contributions from key figures in Gordon’s career, including Bernie Ecclestone and Alain de Cadenet.
    • Two-volume set with almost 1000 pages in total, plus superb archive photography and a wide selection of Gordon’s own drawings, notes and sketches.

    A piece of art

    Thank you for the very nice two-volume book set, about Gordon Murray CBE! its great! Covering so much of Gordons designs, including those never built, fantastic!! I specially like that you also included 15 pages about the SLR programme, since the Mercedes SLR is the worlds first front-engined ground-effekt car.. made in a completely different way then other Mercedes cars, with structural composites.. much thanks to Gordon, with entite bodyshell, doors and bonnet made from corrosion-resistant carbon fibre composite
