Gordon Murray Joins Group Lotus - Web Exclusive

Group Lotus has announced the appointment of Gordon Murray to the Lotus Advisory Council.

Greg Emmerson
Aug 30, 2011

He will work alongside Bob Lutz, Tom Purves, Prof Dr Burkhard Göschel and Frank Tuch to advise Group Lotus on future developments and guide product strategy, technology, quality, brand, marketing and distribution for Group Lotus. It’s a little known that when Gordon began his motorsport career in 1969 he actually wanted to work for Lotus, but a chance meeting with Brabham designer Ron Tauranac led to him work for Brabham, where he was later appointed Chief Designer by team boss Bernie Ecclestone.

During his time in F1, Gordon was responsible for designing many Grand Prix winning cars and was heralded as leading the way in terms of innovation and new technologies.

With the McLaren F1 road car under his belt, Gordon more recently established Gordon Murray Design to develop an innovative and disruptive automotive manufacturing technology trademarked iStream. The design and prototyping of their T.25 Petrol and T.27 Electric Ultra Compact City Cars has been central to both the development and validation of this process.
