The Brabham BT62 has been designed and engineered to demand more from its driver. It is a car for those who want to challenge themselves and push themselves to experience driving in its purest form. Using contemporary materials, processes and technologies, the Brabham BT62 is a mid-engined track car with power driven to the rear wheels via a rear-mounted race-spec transmission.
With a dry weight of just 972kg, the vehicle is incredibly light, and boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 730ps per tonne.
Power comes from a Brabham 5.4 litre V8 engine which produces 710ps (700bhp, 522kW) and 667 Nm (492 ft/lb) of torque.
With its performance-optimised body and aggressive aerodynamic package, the Brabham BT62 delivers over 1200kg of downforce.
Saving additional weight and with additive performance, brakes are carbon/carbon featuring 6-piston calipers front and rear.
Brabham Automotive has developed the BT62 as an exclusive racer limited to 70 cars using technology to enhance the driver experience, as opposed to controlling it by limiting driver involvement to the minimum.
The systems that are utilised by BT62 work with, rather than for, the driver, giving a unique experience.
The driver plays a far greater role in controlling the vehicle. There is a greater sense of reward rather than yet more speed and power being managed by electronics.
Fearlessly determined and continually pushing limits, Brabham Automotive is borne of a pedigree that has stood the test of time – a racing dynasty like no other, which drives the Company and provides its inspiration to succeed.
Staying true to Brabham’s proud Anglo-Australian roots, the company has its US, European and Middle Eastern office in the UK, whilst its Australasian and Asian office is based in Adelaide, South Australia, where the BT62 is also manufactured.
The Brabham story officially began in 1948 when Sir Jack Brabham made his Australian competition debut.
Sir Jack went on to become a triple world champion and in 1966 became the first, and still the only, man to win a Formula One world championship driving a car of his own construction, a feat which is unlikely to be ever matched.
Now 70 years on, Brabham remains one of the most iconic motorsport marques with a lineage of champion racers, engineers and innovators.
Spearheaded by David Brabham, Brabham Automotive continues that rich heritage and continues the Brabham story into the 21st century, once again designing and manufacturing cars which defy convention.
Despite only building its first car in 1961, by the mid-1960s Brabham became the largest manufacturer of single-seat racing cars in the world, and by 1970 had built over 500 cars.
Renowned for its customer service, Brabham had the reputation of providing customers with cars of a standard equal to those used by the works team and provided a high degree of support to its customers—including Sir Jack Brabham helping customers set up their cars.
Brabham Automotive is an automotive company built on the same values that has always made Brabham a winning dynasty. Fearlessly determined and pushing the limits, Brabham Automotive is borne of a pedigree that has stood the test of time, which makes Brabham a racing dynasty like no other. It drives us in everything we do and inspires us to succeed.
Brabham Automotive is at the beginning of a new chapter of car manufacturing, producing the finest high performance cars for drivers who back themselves, accept the challenge, and take control of their own destiny.
