Gordon Murray plans new IGM-branded supercar and relocate R&D

0

Gordon Murray Automotive is to build a new car under its IGM brand in celebration of its 50th anniversary. The vehicle’s architecture will be based on a new version of the company’s iStream technology.

Furthermore later this year, Gordon Murray R&D will be relocated from Shalford, Surrey, to a new 1,500m2 building that joins two of the company’s other facilities within Dunsfold Park.

It will be equipped with fully-automated robot cells for making iPanels, welding iFrames and bonding. Experts there will also continue to develop the iStream process, and progress several other patents including iLink, iCase and iSeat.

Gordon Murray Design will retain its premises in Shalford, Surrey, while plans for a new company headquarters are discussed.
