Brabham BT62 brings legendary brand back to the track

Brabham BT62 brings legendary brand back to the track

Although it hasn’t built cars for many years, the Brabham brand still holds plenty of clout on the racetrack thanks to the creations of its founder, Jack Brabham. Paying homage to the legendary designer and racing driver, who passed away in 2014, the automaker has returned with this, the Brabham BT62.

Intended for track-use only, the Brabham BT62 uses a naturally aspirated 5,4-litre V8 sending 522 kW and 667 N.m of torque to the rear. And the body? Well, the carbon-fibre structure weighs in at just 972 kg.

While official performance figures have yet to be revealed, with a power-to-weight ratio of 537 kW per tonne and a claimed downforce of more than 1 200 kg, it’s expected to be pretty darn quick. Stopping force is provided by a set of carbon-ceramic discs, while Brabham has partnered with Michelin which will be the sole supplier of slicks for the BT62.

If you wish to purchase one for use on your local racetrack, it’ll set you back a cool £1-million (that’s about R17-million) before taxes. Brabham says it will build just 70 examples, with each car representing a year of the automaker’s heritage.

Brabham also has plans for a product development programme with a final goal of getting the badge back on the track at Le Mans in the hands of multiple winner and company CEO, David Brabham.
