The Shell Concept Car has been the fruit of collaboration with Gordon Murray though it is not particularly nice if it is efficient
Shell and Gordon Murray still working
side-by-side to create the urban vehicle more efficient, practical
and economic on the planet. The “new prototype”
presented it is a direct derivative of the previous T25 and
T27 that we have seen before, but that have been redefined
to improve your efficiency in every way.
Murray has created a utility very
compact for three occupants with the driver in central position
forward and the companions behind him to each side. The
vehicle only weighs 550 Kg and his body, despite having
markedly improved the aesthetics continues to be one of your points

The interior is simple but very technological with a single central screen that does the work of a box of instruments and control other functions such as the audio system, in addition of the screens on each side that emit the image of the cameras which replace the classic rear-view mirrors mirror.
Shell for its part has provided
all liquids for the prototype, making special mention in
the oil for the engine, a small block of 0.66-liter three
cylinders located under the floor of the trunk, specially designed for him to get the
