Brabham Automotive is a company built on the same values that has always made Brabham a winning dynasty, designing and manufacturing high performance vehicles that defy convention and carry the Brabham racing DNA.
Heralding the start of an exciting new chapter for Brabham the BT62 continues the legendary ‘BT’ naming convention and honours the legacy of the marque’s greatest and most memorable cars.
70 is not a random number – it marks the 70th year since Jack Brabham launched his racing career in Australia back in 1948.
Using contemporary materials, processes and technologies, the Brabham BT62 is a mid-engined track car with power driven to the rear wheels via a rear-mounted race-spec transmission.
With a dry weight of just 972kg, the vehicle is incredibly light, and boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 730ps per tonne.
Power comes from a Brabham 5.4 litre V8 engine which produces 710ps (700bhp, 522kW) and 667 Nm (492 ft/lb) of torque.
With its performance-optimised body and aggressive aerodynamic package, the Brabham BT62 delivers over 1200kg of downforce.
Saving additional weight and with additive performance, brakes are carbon/carbon featuring 6-piston calipers front and rear.
Brabham Automotive has developed the BT62 as an exclusive racer limited to 70 cars using technology to enhance the driver experience, as opposed to controlling it by limiting driver involvement to the minimum.
The systems that are utilised by BT62 work with, rather than for, the driver, giving a unique experience.
The driver plays a far greater role in controlling the vehicle. There is a greater sense of reward rather than yet more speed and power being managed by electronics.
