    Take a look at this 2143 lb, 700 HP, naturally aspirated 5.4L V8, beast getting ready to be unleashed on race tracks around the world. Introducing the new Austrailian Brabham BT62. Lookout Porsche, there's a new kid on the block.

    Sweet but it's over twice as expensive as a Ford GT.

    David Brabham will be making more cars and eventually heading back to Le Mans (David won the LeMans back in 2009 with the Puegeot 908 Prototype race team). The BT62, it seems, is his first step to getting Brabham racing going again. He plans on making only 70 cars BT62s which will sell for $1.4 million a copy. With some track success who knows where Brabham will take his company. Hard to say if he is going to position his company for more commercial success (exotic car production) or whether he intends to stay focused on just building world class race cars. Your guess is as good as anybody's. If you can recall, Dave's father Jack was considered a racing innovator. He was the first to test a race car back in the 50s and 60s in a wind tunnel, use carbon brakes, use composite panels, and develop a hydropneumatic suspension. With Dave's pedigree, it certainly will be worth keeping track of David Brabham and his reborn car company. It appears he is well positioned for success.
