WEL­COME

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Forgotten Hero - Mur­ray Scul­lion, staff writer @mscul­lion2

This week I was for­tu­nate enough to in­ter­view For­mula 1 de­signer Gor­don Mur­ray. His work with McLaren and Brab­ham had led to many de­sign icons, and he’s still at it to­day – he’s the man be­hind TVR’s new ma­chine. What re­ally amazed me about Gor­don, though, was that even as a man of mo­tor­sport, and as some­one who cre­ated one of the most ex­otic cars of all time, his love of ev­ery­day clas­sics is enor­mous. He’s got an Austin-Healey Fro­g­eye Sprite, Ford Corti­nas, and is smit­ten with the Re­nault 4. Plus, he drives and en­joys them. It makes you think – money can’t buy you taste, but it can’t take it away ei­ther.
