Great cars are worth the wait, so after 2 years of teasing you we are happy to announce that the Brabham BT62R has debuted as a street-legal race car. It is their third model, joining the Ultimate Track and Competition models. All the work needed to make it legal was done in-house, as opposed to 3rd party suppliers.
This has allowed the team to retain much of the race-ready hardware while complying with road laws. CEO Dan Marks said: Launching the BT62R is a great achievement for the team at Brabham Automotive. All the requisite design and engineering to turn the track BT62 into the road going BT62R has been done in-house by our team of engineers, which is a great testimony to their endeavor and expertise.”
To make it civilized, they added variable ride height for bumpy streets, emissions and sound-compliant exhaust, A/C with defrost, comfy seats, and the option for an audio system. Available in left or right-hand drive, it will arrive wearing Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSports. Their 5.4-liter V8 is rated at 700 horsepower and 492 lb-ft of torque. It is the most powerful production V8 without turbos or superchargers, sending power to a 6-speed sequential with street-friendly gear ratios. Perhaps the best feature is the traditional clutch pedal, in that it is only needed when starting, or if you want smooth shifting for your significant other.
