These days, McLaren F1 designer Gordon Murray is working on a project that is remarkably different from the supercar that made him famous. It's a pair of city cars called the T.25 and T.27, and he recently announced they will hit the road in 2016.
The T.25 is a tiny three-seat car that puts the driver in the center (he's big on those, it seems) with a compact and efficient three-cylinder gasoline engine. The T.27 is a similarly tiny electric car. Both are lightweight, inexpensive, and will be touted as new British motoring icons akin to the original Mini.
