Brabham Brings Its 700HP Supercar To The Blacktop With Road-Legal BT62R

Until now, the utilization of Brabham’s speed-savvy BT62 platform has been a track-only affair. The Australian automaker enamored the industry when it released the Ultimate Track and Competition-spec models, but left many would-be buyers in disarray when it announced that these options would not be road legal. Now, Brabham has issued a response to the outcry with its BT62R — a capable revision than can be utilized on the road, the track, and anywhere in between.

The newly-announced BT62R features a number of accolades that made the original on-track model so appealing. It introduces a unique Signature Series livery to the company’s original lineup, paying homage to the manufacturer’s 35 wins within Formula 1, and can be ordered in either left- or right-hand drive, depending on dominance. To ensure that it’s ready for the public roadway, Brabham has included a variable ride height system, a new exhaust (for reduced noise in cities and towns), and an improved front splitter/rear diffuser to maintain its aerodynamic prowess while out and about. Under the hood, a 700-horsepower naturally-aspirated V8 engine
— pulled directly from the brand’s Ultimate Track and Competition examples — makes its debut under the umbrella of revised engine mapping. We’ve only scratched the surface of Brabham’s upcoming supercar, so keep your eyes peeled for new information in the coming weeks.
