Brabham reveals name and exhaust note of new sports vehicle

Brabham reveals name and exhaust note of new sports vehicle”

The company says that the name of the new vehicle follows a tradition of the F1 team that goes back to 1961 - when Jack Brabham and Ron Tauranac first began designing and manufacturing cars together - of using the two founders' initials along with a chassis numbering code that is specific to each auto. The prefix is always followed by a number, one that usually doesn't mean anything in particular (this one might hint to 1962, though, the year of the company's first racing season). Although not at all revealing, it does have a scent of a naturally aspirated V8. This would tie in with the Brabham name's history, because it has been synonymous with Formula 1 since three-time champion Sir Jack Brabham first took to the grid in 1955.

Brabham Automotive has confirmed it will unveil its first new model called the BT62 this May and to prove it, it has released a short vid of it idling during testing. The race driver and racing vehicle manufacturer made history in 1966 when he managed to become the first and only driver to have won Formula One while behind the wheel of his race auto.

Other cars to wear the "BT" prefix have included the BT7, which Jack Brabham drove to his first Formula 1 victory in 1963, as well as the BT19, which Jack Brabham made history in back in 1966 by becoming the first driver to win an F1 world title in a auto bearing his own name.

As revealed by Autocar past year, a Brabham racing re-entry that followed the launch of a vehicle brand would mirror a strategy employed by McLaren Automotive. The company's homepage has a countdown to the car's reveal that, as of the publishing of this post, has just 51 days left.

The recently established Brabham Automotive, led by a Brabham family member and closely linked to the Brabham racing team, is set to unveil a new vehicle on May 2, 2018. But the Force India team revealed its 2018 F1 challenger earlier this month, quelling any links to a takeover.
