Without further ado, this is the GMA T50s Niki Lauda, meant to be the be-all and end-all for a track car.

GMA and its man in charge, Professor Gordon Murray — yes, that Murray from the iconic McLaren F1 program — revealed the T50s Niki Lauda on Monday, which also happens to be the late Lauda’s birthday. He would have been 72 years old. The T50s is a fitting tribute to the F1 legend, but unlike Murray’s work on the McLaren F1 and F1 GTR programs, where the latter was based on the former, the T50s
