► Sounds like a V8

If you’re a longtime fan of Formula One, you’ll know the Brabham name is royalty in the F1 paddock. Back when competitive F1 teams required much less money to set up, Jack Brabham won the championship in a car with his name on it –  no mean feat at the time. And even after his retirement, Brabham continued as one of the most innovative teams on the grid.

Now the team that gave us the BT46B ‘fan car’ is back with the BT62, a brand new car for the road that captures the heritage and pedigree of the Brabham name. ‘I am thrilled to announce Brabham BT62 as the name of Brabham Automotive’s first project,’ said managing director David Brabham.

‘With more than 700 racing cars produced since its inception in the 1960s, the Brabham marque boasts a remarkable heritage, so to see the first Brabham in 26 years wear the iconic BT designation will be a huge moment in our history.’

Although there’s no pictures of the new car yet, Brabham has supplied audio of the new car on tick-over – and it sounds like a V8 to us. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
