Below is the last “Energy Opportunites” video I’ve been meaning to share. This one is of Gordon Murray. Gordon was a “car designer and winner, with McLaren, of five Formula One championships and 50 Grand Prixs.” No small feat. He was McLaren’s F1 Head Designer, but he’s turned to creating greener cars and features the T27 in the video below. His T25 (designed first, of course) was gas-powered, but achieved nearly 100mpg on the Brighton to London future cars rally. The T27, which is apparently featured for the first time in the video below, adds an electric motor, is cheap, and is green in a number of unique ways. Check it out:
