Default Gordon Murray's small car to be manufactured (T.25 / T.27)

Famed South African Formula One designer Gordon Murray's design house has developed two narrow track, compact cars. T.25 powered by a small petrol engine and T.27 being its electric version. These cars will be made by unidentified manufacturer. Also T.25 and T.27 are perfect for India?

Although Gordon Murray was born in South Africa, he resides in the UK and the car is also designed in the UK. So it should go into production in UK, no?

We already have something very similar to T.25. That's the Nano. Quite similar in dimensions, but seats 4 people.

To answer the question, is it perfect for India, would be similar to asking "Will E2O sell if it had a small petrol engine"? I don't think our market is mature enough!

I recall watching a snippet on FifthGear a while back by Viki, but this car, as technologically advanced as it may be and coming from the stables of Gordon Murray adds some value to it, I still feel the Reva is better looking.

T25 or T27, either way the design will get some getting used to and in my case it's one of those cars that will not be on the "cool wall".

T25 and T27 have central seating position for driver, just like in Formula Race cars. It should be fun and better overall visibility for such a compact car.
