5.2 litre V10
The Murlani VT is a concept supercar which combines high
performance and raw power with clean, uncomplicated exterior
styling. The vehicle was developed by Jason McAdam, a
graduate of Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand
with an Honours Degree in Industrial Design. Currently
Jason works for the newly formed Wingnut Wings design
The Murlani VT is powered by a supercharged
5.2 litre V10
The Murlani VT's bodywork consists of lightweight aluminium
alloy body panels which wrap smoothly around the futuristic
passenger compartment. The hood and panel behind the cockpit
area are formed from carbon fibre, along with some smaller
elements on the front and rear of the car. The use of
exposed carbon fibre makes for a nice contrast of color
and texture to the sleek aluminium panels.
The intent behind the project was to inject in bit more
'venom' into the supercar arena, especially in regards
to front engined supercars. Apart from the 'bisecting'
front and rear panels the exterior has been left unhindered
from too much over-engineered cosmetic styling.
The interior of the Murlani VT combines the same clean,
'sweeping' styling seen on the exterior with a touch of
color. The yellow trim gives the overall tone of the interior
a slight edge, designed to help emphasis the 'venom' the
VT encapsulates, like the bold markings found on a dangerous
The 'gull-wing' type door styling unlocks the two-tone,
leather upholstered interior. To compensate for the lack
of rearward vision the centre console houses a LCD display
that relays live feed from a camera mounted in the tail
light aperture and when not in use a GPS can be accessed.
The proposed drivetrain for the Murlani VT consists of
an Audi-sourced, 5.2 litre, V10 engine mounted up front
- with a supercharger bolted on for good measure. A 6-speed
manual gearbox, ceramic front and rear disc brakes and
stiffened sports suspension would help ensure the abundance
of power is contained in a manageable package.
