The Brabham Automotive BT62 Supercar is built on the legacy created by Australian driver Sir Jack Brabham—a three time Formula 1 World Champion and one of the most successful and accomplished drivers and team owners in the sport’s history. His sons, Geoff and David, continued that tradition of global success, and now his grandsons, Matthew and Sam, are furthering that dynasty.
The Brabham Supercar heralds the family’s return to manufacturing. The car’s power-to-weight ratio shows that it was designed with destroying track records in mind. The car is capable of 730ps per ton and is powered by a Brabham naturaly aspirated 5.4 liter V8 engine. The supercar weighs only 972kg, thanks in large part to the use of lightweight carbon fiber for the majority of its exterior. Fans of Sir Jack will appreciate the car’s livery, the classic green and gold of Jack’s BT19, which he drove to victory in the 1966 French Formula 1 Grand Prix at Reims. That victory was historic in that it marked the first, and so far only, time that a driver won a World Championship in a car of his own construction.
With such a history, it’s only fitting that the new BT62 should require a lot of its driver as well. But, new owners need not fear as they will be invited to be a part of the Brabham driver development program. That program will pit physical ability and determination against potential, raising the driver to optimise driver and car performance.
