Abstract: Let $G$ be a connected non-special semisimple algebraic group and let $W$ be a finite dimensional $G$-representation such that $W$ has trivial generic stabilizer. Let $\mathfrak {g}=\text {Lie}(G)$. Then the semi-direct product $\mathfrak {g}\oplus W$ is a counter-example to the Gel′fand-Kirillov conjecture.
