Truth in Engineering

The conversation starter. And ender.

There's much to talk about when you build a sedan that's toppling the S-Class® in every possible way. Ample discussion, alone, could be had around its revolutionary aluminum Audi Space Frame (ASF®) and the resulting leap in performance and efficiency.' Or the intuitive handwriting recognition technology of its MMI® system. Or even its LED headlights — so vibrantly clear, it's the closest re-creation to daylight yet* All of which will lead you to conclude the conversation is over. See how at The new Audi A8 Is here.

Gordon Murray T.25 City Car Unveiled

These are the first pictures of the Cordon Murray-designed T.25 3-seat city car that he has been developing over recent years. It's powered by a 660-cc 3-cylinder aluminum engine developing 51 bhp at 7000 rpm and 42 Ib.-ft. of torque driving the rear wheels through a semi-automatic 6-speed sequential gearbox. Murray claims the car is capable of achieving more than 61 mpg, but it does take a full 16.2 sec. to reach 62 mph [100 km/h). Top speed is restricted to 90 mph, although Murray claims it can hit 97 mph.

Like the legendary Murray-designed McLaren Fl, the T.25 has a central driving position with the two passengers to the sides and slightly rearward. It takes just 20 sec. to adapt the in al crash standards. With

terior to one of six layouts, varying luggage capacity from 5.6 to 25.4 cu. ft.

Despite its diminutive size (the T.25 measures 94 in. long, 51 in. wide and weighs just 1267 IbO, Murray maintains that the use of Formula 1-derived materials and technology will ensure the car meets glob-

body panels manufactured from recycled plastic, the T.25 is intended to be built using Murray's ¡Stream assembly process that reduces capital investment by 80 percent in a plant that's just 20 percent the size of a conventional production facility.— IA
