Brabham BT62 Teaser

Just two weeks ahead of its global unveiling, Brabham Automotive has released headline figures for the Brabham BT62, along with a photograph which gives a glimpse of its first car. The teaser image shows the rear of a low-slung, race-inspired car. The BT62’s thin LED accent tail lights are reflected in its extreme carbon fibre rear wing, which points to the car’s performance potential. With performance characteristics that point to the potency of the car, the new Brabham is pure-bred for the track and capable of setting blistering lap times, designed and engineered to demand more from the driver and reward the limited few who will rise to its challenge. The BT62 boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 730ps per tonne, a dry weight of just 972kg and is powered by a Brabham naturally-aspirated 5.4 litre capacity V8 engine. With its performance-optimised body and aggressive aerodynamic package, the Brabham BT62 delivers over 1200kg of downforce. Saving additional weight and with addi

Brabham Automotive has today released a new video hinting at the performance potential of the Brabham BT62, which will be unveiled on Wednesday 2 May 2018. Captured during high-speed dynamic testing, the distinctive sound of the new Brabham engine at full throttle showcases a car that has been built to set blistering lap-times.

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 th
