Make Your Brabham BT62 Road Legal For £150,000

Brabham Automotive has responded to customers asking for a road legal conversion of the BT62 by launching a kit that allows owners to drive it on public roads.

It costs £150,000 ($190,807/€167,409) to make the supercar road legal, excluding the actual price of the car (£1 million). All conversions for the European market will be carried out in the United Kingdom, although the automaker says that a similar process is being undertaken in Australia as well.

Brabham will handle the conversion ahead of registration, putting the cars through the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) test. Also, they will add extra gear to the BT62, such as raised ground clearance with the front and rear axle lift kit, and an increased steering lock range. Air conditioning, more high-quality upholstery, door locks and immobilizers are included here as well.

The additional equipment will add a few kilograms to the total weight of the BT62, which tips the scales at 972 kg (2,142 lbs) before the conversion. The engine won’t suffer any modifications, so the 5.4-liter V8 unit will still deliver 710 PS (700 hp / 522 kW) and 667 Nm (492 lb-ft) of torque.

“We designed the BT62 to be an unrestricted, thoroughbred track car and our extensive test program has revealed it to be all of those things. This isn’t a car designed for the road. With that said, it’s clear some customers are keen to have a road compliant option with their BT62, particularly to drive to and from the track. My father Jack was always customer focused, and we will continue with that ethos”, commented David Brabham.

The first road-legal Brabham BT62 cars are expected to be delivered this summer, and further announcements about the company’s future plans will be made at the Autosport International Show, this Thursday, on January 10.
