Speedback GT is the culmination of a lifelong dream and the realisation that, in order to achieve classic status, one must draw from the past and then embrace the future. Speedback GT is a fully engineered, proven and coachbuilt Grand Tourer, taking inspiration from icons of the Sixties. Speedback GT takes over 7,200 hours to meticulously handbuild by artisan craftsmen and skilled technicians in Great Britain.

Speedback GT's 5 litre twin-scroll supercharged V8 engine delivers 510 bhp and 0-60mph sprint in an enviable 4.6 seconds going on to a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). A maximum torque of 461 lb.ft. (625 Nm) provides discretionary performance and ample cruising ability.

Peeling away Speedback GT's perfectly formed surface exposes its inner beauty.

Engineered from the ground up with a structurally-advanced pillarless monocoque, Speedback GT provides unparalleled levels of rigidity and strength.

Setting the standards for future models, the car has been developed in line with David Brown Automotive’s ethos of absolute product integrity.

All Speedback GT's bespoke parts have been fully engineered, machined, tested and refined to exacting standards, whether they are visible or not.

The ethos behind Speedback GT combines both traditional handcraftsmanship with state-of-the-art engineering and technology. Its handformed body panels are perfectly formed with accuracy that could rival any mass-produced vehicle.

Provided by acclaimed British audio experts, the cabin of Speedback GT boasts a 7.1 Bowers and Wilkins surround sound audio experience to provide high-quality sound controlled by the touchscreen infotainment system or by plugging in an external audio device.
