Designer Gives T.50 McLaren F1 LM Makeover

Finding the T.50 a bit plain? Check out this McLaren F1 LM-style remix concept

  • Concept borrows fender vents, wheels, wing from original F1 LM

  • Jon Sibal Turns T.50 into a race-ready visual wonder


The Gordon Murray Automotive T.50 was only shown for the first time earlier this week, but already virtual designers are taking on the new model. Tweaking, changing, and rendering absolute wonders like this one that show off what the T.50 could look like if it got the same treatment as the many variants of the original McLaren F1.

This one comes from automotive designer and illustrator Jon Sibal via Instagram. It takes the extremely simple T.50 shape and applies the LM styling treatment of the McLaren F1 LM.

Gordon Murray T.50 Set to Revolutionize Road Cars Yet Again

Starting with wider fenders as the front, which bulge out and now have heat and air extraction vents like the F1. The rear fenders are wider, too, though it looks like it makes for some tiny rear wheels. To be fair, the rear wheels on the original look positively tiny too.

Those wheels are also borrowed from the F1 LM and are a classic five-spoke centre-lock design. The nose is further modified with F1-style headlamps and an F1 front bumper plus that vent in the bonnet. There is a large race-ready splitter in the front and an absolutely massive wing in the rear, both with the intention of bringing this to racetrack spec.

The modern homage to the F1 LM shows off just how well the original design has aged. Because the two could sit together in a parking lot, and both would look equally modern. And equally fast. Mr Murray, are you listening?
