The Brabham name is on the return thanks to their new BT62 supercar under Brabham Automotive. Recently, the automaker was testing the BT62 at The Bend Motorsport Park in Australia. Brabham Automotive released a video of the car’s testing session which features their Managing Director, David Braham, behind the wheel.
“The BT62 is incredibly responsive and rewarding to drive, and as a result, it’s very easy to feel at one with the car,” said David Braham. “The steering is very direct and does exactly what you want it to do. There’s a very wide window of grip and the confidence that the car gives you as a driver, even in the wet, is outstanding.”
The Brabham BT62 comes with aerodynamic components that create 2,645 lbs of downforce– that’s more than the weight of the car (2,142 lbs). Combine that weight and downforce with the power output of 700 horsepower and you have the recipe for a true supercar.
Brabham Automotive will be starting the next testing phase later this month at the Algarve International Circuit in Portimao, Portugal.
