David Brown Automotive’s Speedback GT is a retro-styled two-door coupe that was launched more than two years ago, yet it is at the brand’s Geneva Motor Show stand and will remain there until March 17.
The car looks unchanged since we last saw it, but since there are no two identical Speedback GTs, this one wears white on the outside and probably has a few special touches in the cockpit. As for the one sitting next to it, it’s dressed in a dark red shade and adds different wheels, with a more modern vibe.
Regardless of how one chooses to spec their Speedback GT, all of them share the same engine. The 5-liter twin-scroll supercharged V8 is capable of delivering 510 PS (503 hp / 375 kW) and 625 Nm (461 lb-ft) of torque, thus rocketing the car to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds and up to a top speed that has been electronically capped to 250 km/h (155 mph).
When first launched, the Speedback GT came at an eye-watering £495,000 ($651,353/€575,404) before taxes in the UK, which makes it a very expensive proposition.
David Brown Automotive’s actual premiere for the Swiss auto show is the Mini Remastered. It comes to life by using a donor vehicle and uses bespoke body panels. As for the time required to complete one, that would be about 1,400 hours.
Just because it’s tiny doesn’t mean that it’s cheap. The ’s Mini Remastered can be had from roughly £75,000 ($98,690/€87,182) in Britain, but depending on what clients want, it can hit the £100,000 ($131,587/€116,243) mark.
