SMALL PLAYER, GRAND PLAY

Irish Daily Mirror - - ON THE ROAD -

David Brown Au­to­mo­tive, maker of the Speed­back GT and Mini Re­mas­tered, will be show­ing a new high-per­for­mance grand tourer model at the Geneva mo­tor show next month.

So far we’ve only got this teaser im­age. I al­ways ad­mire these small com­pa­nies that go up against the big play­ers. They, like the re­booted TVR com­pany, face enor­mous chal­lenges and long odds of be­ing suc­cess­ful. No other coun­try pro­duces so many be­spoke man­u­fac­tur­ers, and we had even more in the 1960s and 70s.
