Brabham BT62 To Use Tech From Microsoft

Brabham has scored a huge win that’ll help the BT62 reach the production line, announcing Microsoft as its official technology partner.

The small Australian automaker will utilize Microsoft’s enterprise systems to operate seamlessly around the world. Microsoft will also provide Brabham with assistance in data analytics and driver development. In fact, BT62 owners will be offered a performance program using the technology giant’s advanced cognitive technologies.

“Consistent with Brabham’s approach to technology, we will be utilizing mixed reality technology for an immersive customer configuration and for current and future product development,” a Brabham Automotive spokesman said.

Australia’s only new car is a McLaren Senna GTR rival

The Brabham BT62 itself is restricted to track use and features a naturally-aspirated 5.4-liter V8 engine delivering 700 hp. Thanks to an overall weight of less than 1000 kg (2200 lbs), the hypercar has a power to weight ratio of 730 hp per tonne. Thanks to 1200 kg of downforce, it should be blisteringly fast.

Only 70 examples will be produced for customers. The first 35 of these will feature liveries that pay tribute to each of Jack Brabham’s F1 Grand Prix victories. Customers of the remaining 35 will be given the chance to create their own dream livery.

Pricing for the Brabham BT62 starts at $1.3 million.
