At an exclusive media briefing in London, David Brown Automotive unveiled its unique handcrafted GT car for the first time. It was also revealed that this exciting and highly anticipated new car, which is designed, engineered and hand-crafted in Britain, will be called Speedback: a name which reflects the elegant yet purposeful lines of the V8 powered sports coupé. Company founder and CEO, David Brown has a long-standing background in engineering, vehicle manufacturing and an equally strong enthusiasm for both classic and contemporary cars. With his concept for a classically styled GT car with modern mechanicals and reliability, he began to assemble his specialist team some two years ago.
The car is the result of 18 months of hard work by the David Brown Automotive team, including highly-experienced Chief Designer, Alan Mobberley. The car, which has been engineered and handcrafted in Coventry, proudly uses traditional British materials and craftsmanship. Speedback promises exceptional performance and handling from the latest Jaguar 5 litre supercharged engine. Customers of Speedback are able to request any level of tuning or engine enhancements they desire. “This car will appeal to anybody who desires a truly individual sports car – said David Brown – which can boast a fine British pedigree and which will only be produced in limited numbers, thus ensuring the kind of exclusivity associated with Britain’s once proud heritage of traditional, high-quality, automotive coach-building”.
