Brabham BT62 – track focused hyper-car

Brabham BT62 – track focused hyper-car

I have feeling, that majority didn’t hear anything about Brabham BT62. It is unique the world’s most track focused hyper-car made by Brabham Automotive. This model has been designed and engineered to demand more from its driver. It is a car for those who want to challenge themselves.

The way how she sounds… It is unbelievable. Every race car should sound the same. Car weight is only 972kg and power comes from a 5.4 litre V8 engine  which produces 710ps (700bhp, 522kW) and 667 Nm (492 ft/lb) of torque.

About Company

Brabham Automotive is the next chapter of the iconic Brabham marque. A performance-oriented OEM, its first car is the Brabham BT62, a track-focused unrestricted GT car with an option to convert it into a road compliant variant. With its headquarters in Adelaide, Australia, Brabham dates back to 1948 when Sir Jack Brabham commenced his racing career and continues today with his son David Brabham, with Brabham Automotive.

This car will make its racing debut in a two-hour Britcar Endurance Championship meeting at the famed Brands Hatch circuit on 9-10 November 2019.  The BT62 will appear on an invitational basis at this season-ending race on the Britcar calendar.
