BRABHAM BT62 HYPERCAR DEBUTS
Brainchild of David Brabham, the only one of three-time Formula 1 world champion Sir Jack’s three sons to race at the sport’s pinnacle, the eponymous track-only BT62 hypercar returns the hallowed name to the marketplace it dominated with Ron Tauranac-designed racing cars in the 1960s. Motivated by a 5.4-litre normally aspirated V8 engine developing 700bhp, and weighing in at a sub-ford GT40 972kg, Brabham Automotive’s £1million rear-wheel-drive machine sits firmly in Mclaren Senna territory. Built in Adelaide, South Australia, production will be limited to 70 examples. The first 35 will be liveried to celebrate one each of the GP victories achieved by Brabham cars from 1964-85. Owners will be inducted into a driver-development programme devised by renowned coach David Brabham, aimed at enabling them to experience the maximum enjoyment from their investments.
