Brabham BT62 Hypercar

Though not a name redolent of the same commercial clout as Ferrari, Lamborghini or Porsche, in the world of European racing, Brabham is a marque that reckons with the best. Formula 1 World Champion in 1959, 1960 and 1966, and winners of two Driver’s Championships in ’81 and ’83, Brabham had been out of commission since 1992, until Geoff and David Brabham decided to revive their father’s legacy in 2014. It seems Brabham is alive and well again, as they unveil their BT62 Hypercar.

Since being resuscitated after a 22 year hiatus, Geoff and David Brabham’s goal has been to bring their family name back to the European Formula One Circuit. A naturally aspirated 5.4-liter V8 that produces 700 horsepower and 492 pound-feet of torque proves that a capacity for engineering speed isn’t lacking. The beautifully contoured and elegantly designed Hypercar will sell for about $1.4 million, and Brabham will only produce 70. Thirty-five BT62s will bear color schemes representative of previously victorious Brabhams of the past. All this leads up to their return to Le Mans, which might see a Brabham-driven racing version of the BT62 on June 16 of this year.
