Another step towards the revival of an Aussie icon
Brabham Automotive has taken another baby step towards its return, with a brief engine-note teaser video and the reveal of its upcoming model dubbed 'BT62'.
David Brabham, son of motorsport legend Sir Jack Brabham, is responsible for the nameplate's return after more than 25 years in the wilderness.
“Today’s launch heralds the start of a new chapter in the story of a family synonymous with success,” Brabham Automotive said in a statement at the brand's relaunch.
“Drawing on vast experience from four decades of competing at all levels of global motorsport, David Brabham has combined his skill, passion and enthusiasm to guide this project ahead of its unveiling.”
The noise is a gravelly burble, which suggests the brand's first car will be a serious piece of V8 kit. But we're going to have to wait at least 52 days for a full look – like most established manufacturers, Brabham is playing the long game with its drip feed of information.
There was also talk about a return to Formula 1 from Brabham. At the moment, there's no word about whether the automotive startup will join the F1 grid. Although the fast-spinning motorsports rumour mill has suggested it could be taking over from Force India, but no concrete announcement has been made.
