£1 Million Brabham BT62 Available In Iconic Racing And Custom Liveries

Brabham unveiled their BT62 track-only supercar last month, and they have already received a few deposits, despite the starting price of £1 million ($1.34 million) in the UK without taxes and before options.

Besides offering customers a full visual carbon fiber pack and a passenger seat as options, Brabham has now announced the option between the ‘Celebration’ or ‘Signature’ series.

Limited to 35 units out of the total 70 that will be produced, the Celebration series pays tribute to the company’s 35 Grand Prix F1 wins. Each car will honor a specific race win with a specific livery. For example, chassis number one (BT62/01) will celebrate Brabham’s first-ever F1 victory, achieved by Dan Gurney in the BT7, on June 26, 1964, by wearing the same green and gold colors among other styling cues.

Other BT62s will remind us of different victories in Formula 1, including the one achieved by Jack Brabham in 1966 at Reims, when he became the first driver to win Formula 1 Championship race in a car of his own construction. The red and blue example driven by Niki Lauda, with which he won at Anderstorp in Sweden, on June 17, 1978, will be celebrated in chassis #19.

The Signature series on the other hand, which includes the rest of the 35 examples, is all about customization. Brabham will allow owners to work with in-house designers to configure an individual pattern.

“Considering that the BT62 was shown for the first time just a matter of weeks ago, the response has been incredible”, said James Haskey, Brabham’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “First deposits have already been taken and we’re in the process of allocating build slots for this ultra-exclusive car.”

Tipping the scales at just 972kg (2,142lbs) dry, the Brabham BT62 has a mid-mounted naturally-aspirated 5.4-liter V8 engine. It develops 710PS (700hp / 522kW) and 666Nm (492lb-ft) of torque, and works together with a six-speed sequential racing gearbox.
