You may recall Brabham Automotive recently launched itself back into high-speed prominence once again, with Formula 1 driver and Le Mans legend David Brabham heading the rejuvenated company.
With its unveiling imminent, the all-new Brabham BT62 is set continue the lineage of the marque’s greatest and most memorable cars, from BT7, the first Brabham to win a Formula 1 race, to BT19, which made history in becoming the first car bearing its driver’s name to win a World Championship; the radical, ground-hugging BT46B ‘fan car’, and BT52, the first turbo-charged car to win a Formula 1 World Championship.
Brabham Video Tease
The company has today released a new video tease hinting at the performance potential of the Brabham BT62, which will be unveiled on Wednesday 2 May 2018.
The footage, which was captured during a high speed testing session delivers the distinctive sound of the new Brabham engine at full throttle showcases a car that has been built to set blistering lap-times.
Unquestionably fast, but about far more than outright speed, the Brabham BT62 is resolutely focused on uncompromising performance, handling and driver involvement. Born from a unique and historic racing pedigree, Brabham Automotive’s first car has been designed and engineered to demand more from the driver and reward the limited few who will rise to its challenge.
A uniquely ‘Brabham’ vehicle in design, purpose and character, the Brabham BT62 marries echoes of the marque’s illustrious past with technology to harmonise driver and vehicle performance.
Managing Director, David Brabham, who has been heavily involved in honing the character of the Brabham BT62 said:
“Since my father first took to the track in 1948, the Brabham philosophy has always seen drivers extract every ounce of available performance from their cars, and themselves. That same spirit lives strong within Brabham Automotive today, and its first project, the Brabham BT62, honours the legacy of the cars that have previously carried the iconic Brabham name.”
Fully developed and ready for its global debut on Wednesday 2 May 2018, the Brabham BT62 is the first project to come out of the recently launched Brabham Automotive, and marks the next chapter in the evolving story of one of the most celebrated and evocative names in motor racing history.
