The Rolls-Royce Amethyst Droptail is more than just a car; it's a masterpiece of design that speaks to the brand's unrelenting pursuit of elegance. The exterior exudes sophistication and grace, with its sweeping lines and fluid curves evoking a sense of motion even when standing still. However, what truly sets the Amethyst Droptail apart is its aerodynamic wood surface, a feat of engineering prowess that seamlessly merges aesthetics and performance.

The integration of wood into the aerodynamic design might sound paradoxical, but Rolls-Royce has managed to create a harmonious fusion. The aerodynamic wood surface, meticulously crafted and polished, not only contributes to the car's visual appeal but also enhances its aerodynamic efficiency. This innovation reflects the brand's dedication to not only pushing the envelope of luxury but also exploring unconventional materials and techniques.

Mauve Elegance: The Beauty of Subtlety

The devil, as they say, is in the details, and the Rolls-Royce Amethyst Droptail does not disappoint. The 22-inch aluminum rims are a striking example of this attention to detail. While the rims themselves are a marvel of engineering, it's the subtle mauve paint on the inside that catches the eye. This delicate touch of color adds an unexpected yet alluring dimension to the overall aesthetic. It's a testament to how even the smallest details can leave a lasting impression.

Mauve, often associated with luxury and creativity, brings an air of sophistication to the Amethyst Droptail. The choice of this understated shade further demonstrates Rolls-Royce's ability to redefine luxury by embracing unconventional color palettes that still resonate with elegance.

Gordon Murray Automotive reveals all T.50s commemorative names ahead of prototype global dynamic debut

Gordon Murray Automotive reveals all T.50s commemorative names ahead of prototype global dynamic debut

Premium British vehicle manufacturer Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) has announced the 25 commemorative names to be paired with the 25 T.50s Niki Lauda chassis. Each of the track-only T.50s supercars will celebrate Gordon Murray’s rich racing heritage with their names commemorating the dates of his first 24 Grand Prix wins at different circuits, and a special endurance race victory.

Already allocated to their owners, each of the T.50s chassis is themed chronologically, starting with Murray’s first race victory – 1974 South Africa at Kyalami – and continuing with each subsequent win at unique locations: 1974 USA at Watkins Glen; 1975 Brazil at Interlagos; 1975 Germany at Nürburgring; 1978 Sweden at Anderstorp; 1980 Italy at Imola; 1980 Netherlands at Zandvoort; 1981 Argentina at Buenos Aires; 1982 Monte Carlo at Monaco; 1982 Canada at Montreal; 1983 Brazil at Rio; 1983 Italy at Monza; 1983 UK at Brands Hatch; 1984 USA at Detroit; 1985 France at Paul Ricard; 1988 Mexico at Mexico City; 1988 UK at Silverstone; 1988 Belgium at Spa; 1988 Portugal at Estoril; 1998 Spain at Jerez; 1988 Japan at Suzuka; 1988 Germany at Hockenheim; 1988 Hungary at Hungaroring; 1988 Australia at Adelaide; 1995 France at La Sarthe.

The news comes ahead of the global dynamic debut of the T.50s Niki Lauda prototype on 13 April at the UK’s Goodwood Motor Circuit. The first public outing for the T.50s prototype will headline the 81st Goodwood Members Meet where more than 15,000 track spectators will enjoy the first outing of the race-spec car revving through to its 12,100 rpm redline. The T.33 mule ‘James’ will also make its dynamic debut at the event marking the progress made by the GMA R&D team and enabling the public to hear the GMA.2 V12 engine for the first time.

The Goodwood event will celebrate the career of famed racer Niki Lauda – the 1970s and 1980s F1 driver whose name appears on every T.50s. Raising the occasion’s significance further, GMA will explain the unique connection between the T.50s and the iconic Brabham BT46B ‘Fan Car’ that Niki Lauda drove to a commanding victory at the 1978 Swedish Grand Prix.

Conceived by Gordon Murray during his 17-year tenure as Chief Designer at the Brabham Formula One team, the BT46B rose to instant iconic status due to Murray’s innovative addition of a ground-effect fan system. Having dominated and won its inaugural race at Anderstorp, Sweden in the hands of Niki Lauda, the model was withdrawn by Brabham to pacify other teams for the good of the championship.

Gordon Murray, CBE – Executive Chairman, Gordon Murray Group: “The dynamic debuts of the GMA T.33 mule and GMA T.50s XP1 mark an important milestone in the development of both supercars. I’m also proud that we will participate in honouring a man who was a one-of-a-kind racer and a great friend by showcasing the T.50s Niki Lauda at Goodwood. Additionally, revealing the 25 historically significant motor racing names for our track-only T.50s is the perfect way to celebrate a favourite event for me and the whole GMA team.”

GMA’s Dario Franchitti will present attendees with an insightful overview of the story of the BT46B and its significance in the design and engineering of the T.50 supercar and its track-spec T.50s sibling. The GMA team will also be joined by His Grace the Duke of Richmond who will take a tour of the Murray display of heritage race cars and modern-day GMA supercars.
