Adelaide-based hypercar manufacturer Brabham Automotive has officially built and delivered its first production BT62.

Claimed to be "the world's most track-focussed hypercar", this particular green example was finished in competition specification as requested by its owner, Horsepower Racing.

Horsepower Racing is a UK-based business that specialises in the sale and hire of competition race cars. They plan to compete with the car in the 2020 Britcar Endurance championship.

Competition Brabham BT62 is powered by a 521kW naturally-aspirated V8 with a six-speed sequential gearbox. The chassis is FIA compliant and ready for racing, and the car comes with an onboard data and telemetry system.

Brabham Automotive's first delivery comes during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Australian-based business claims that planning, and a commitment to maintaining operations across its own integrated capabilities in a safe manner were key to delivering the car to the customer on time, despite the wider challenges.

“The growth of Brabham Automotive over the last couple of years is a testament to the up-front planning that we put in place operationally and the depth of infrastructure that we can call upon from the broader Fusion Capital group," says Dan Marks, CEO of Brabham.

"The Brabham Automotive team is highly skilled and has shown great resilience in what has been a trying time for everybody around the world. We are extremely proud of what has been achieved.”

Brabham plans to build 70 examples of their BT62 hypercar, in either road or competition variants.

Each car will be manufactured at its Edinburgh Parks facility located north of Adelaide, in South Australia.
