Brabham Now Taking Orders For BT62, Costs £1 Million Before Taxes

With only six days to go until the unveiling of the new Brabham BT62, scheduled for May 2 in London, the company has opened its order books for the race-inspired supercar.

Priced from £1 million ($1,395,040) before local taxes and without any optional extras, the exotic model will be limited to just 70 units. The number is a reference to 1948, when Sir Jack Brabham made his competition debut.

To celebrate the announcement, Brabham has dropped yet another teaser of the BT62. The image reveals the logo strapped on to its nose, and follows a previous teaser released last week, which gave us a first look into the mean-styled rear end, boasting a gigantic wing and T-shaped LED taillights.

The BT62 is said to have been “developed and tested in complete secrecy”, and the final product will “reward its driver like no other”.

“Having driven, raced and won in a host of world-class cars during my 35-year racing career, I knew exactly what I wanted from the BT62“, said the company’s Managing Director David Brabham. “A car like this should inspire, challenge and reward its driver in equal measures, and I’m delighted with what we have achieved.”

Tipping the scale at 972kg (2,143lbs) dry, the BT62 can deliver more than 1,200kg (2,646lbs) of downforce. It’s powered by a naturally aspirated 5.4-liter V8 engine whose specs remain unknown, but the automaker states that it has a power-to-weight ratio of 730PS (720hp / 537kW) / 1,000 kg (2,205 lbs).

  • Bash

    that price tho!

  • Bob

    That logo is everything.

  • The spec looks impressive, the heritage too. But the price is simply crazy. Like that Fittipaldi EF7 car… and you can’t drive them on the street.

  • FactChecker90803

    Hmm 5.4 L V8, hmm could be a Ford, GM or Jaguar sourced.

    • My bet is GM LS or Ford V8.

      • FactChecker90803

        Could be, but thinking on it, Ford still hand builds SVT 5.4-liter V8’s at its Romeo Engine Plant, and there is a 5.4-liter version of the 5.2 L Shelby GT350’s Voodoo 5.2-liter block.

        • Given Brabham is a British based, they could easily take Cosworth developed Ford V8 like the one that TVR use, or the LS engine, since it’s really plentiful if we talk about UK.

          • FactChecker90803

            I uses Mast as an example of what can be done with the VooDoo engine, the tuner likely will be Cosworth and the engine will likely be a Ford, since the GM LS and LT are looked down as ancient do to there pushrod configuration, shhh just dont tell that to Katech.
