Brabham Automotive to showcase BT62 at Salon Privé
The Directors of Salon Privé are delighted to confirm the attendance of Brabham Automotive who join the event for the first time this year.
It was in 1948 that Sir Jack Brabham made his Australian competition debut going on to become a triple world champion and, in 1966, becoming the first, and still only man to win a Formula One world championship in a car of his own construction. In the mid-60s, Brabham was the largest manufacturer in the world of single-seat racing cars and by 1970, the company had built 500 cars. The company became renowned for its customer service to the extent whereby Jack Brabham himself would assist customers with the set-up of their cars.
Fast forward 70 years and Brabham still remains one of the most iconic and evocative marques in motorsport. Spearheaded by multiple Le Mans winner, David Brabham, Brabham Automotive is an automotive company built on the same values that has always made Brabham a winning dynasty, continuing that rich heritage designing and manufacturing cars which defy convention.
Today, Brabham Automotive is looking forward to a new chapter of car manufacturing, producing the finest high performance car for drivers who ‘back themselves, accept the challenge and take control!’ The Brabham BT62 has been designed and engineered to demand more from the driver, experiencing driving in its purest form. Weighing in at just 972kg, the BT62 boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 730ps per tonne! The Brabham-built 5.4litre V8 produces 700bhp and 492lb/ft of torque resulting in blistering on-track performance.
