Reborn racecar maker Brabham has released another teaser ahead of the BT62’s full reveal, and now we know how mind-bendingly fast it’s going to be, too.
This track-only lightweight tips the scales dry at 972kg – 3kg lighter than the new Suzuki Swift Sport, and yet stuffed between the driver and rear wheels is a Brabham-badged, normally-aspirated 5.4-litre V8 with a casual 750 metric horsepower, or 740bhp.
It means the basic power-to-weight ratio is about 720bhp per tonne, which is enough to sound a little bit frightening. Extensive aerodynamic extras produce a colossal 1200kg of downforce, presumably at very high speed, while the stoppers are understandably carbon all round, with six-piston racing calipers at both ends.
Production will be limited to 70 cars at a price of £1 million plus options, plus taxes. The first deliveries will arrive later this year, we’re told. The full launch comes in a couple of weeks, immediately after which there’s a public showing, for which you can get tickets right here.
