Racing moniker, Brabham knows something about racing. In fact, it has been involved in the art of going around circles at breakneck speeds for the better part of seven decades. So, when Brabham Automotive unveils its first car, performance enthusiasts everywhere are likely to sit up and take notice. The BT62 — so named for the initials of founders Jack Brabham and Ron Tauranac — honours the ‘legacy of the brand’s most memorable cars’. And it does so in spectacular fashion. Crafted as a dedicated track attacker, the BT62 tips the scales at just 972 kg and boasts a power-to-weight ratio of nearly 540 kW per tonne. To put that into perspective, the mighty Bugatti Chiron produces only about 20 kilowatts per tonne more than the BT62, which is powered by a brawny 5.4-litre V8. In our books, that is mighty impressive.
