Gordon Murray is no stranger to pushing the limits of car technology. He is, after all, a former Formula One designer and the man behind both the McLaren F1 and the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.
Lately, though, he’s been a bit quiet. He hasn’t been building race cars or world-beating supercars. What he has been working on is something called iStream. Most people aren’t familiar with it, but when Yamaha showed off its ultra-light sports car concept at the Tokyo Motor Show this year, the name “iStream” suddenly got a lot more attention.
