David Brown Automotive Unveils its First Car: Retro-Look Sports Coupe Speedback

Published: Sat Mar 29, 2014 by Marko P.  |  Source: David Brown Automotive, Autocar

David Brown Automotive has unveiled its first car, a classically styled, V8 powered sports coupe called Speedback. It is designed, engineered and hand-crafted in Britain on Jaguar XKR's platform and mechanical package.

Speedback will remain at the venue in London over the weekend for viewing and will then travel to Monaco to be shown publicly for the first time at the exclusive Top Marques show, which runs at the Grimaldi Forum from 17th to 20th April.

Company founder and CEO, David Brown (not to be confused with Sir David Brown of Aston Martin) 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.

He said: "The launch of Speedback is the realization of a dream for me, and is the result of skilful and dedicated work by a team of highly talented designers, engineers and craftsmen. I am delighted at the reaction of the media, our suppliers, potential customers and friends, and I look forward to presenting the car to the public in Monaco. The Speedback name perfectly reflects the classic sports car tradition of the past, whilst also doing justice to the sophisticated silhouette of the car's hand-built body and unique styling which features amongst much other detail, a fold-down picnic seat."

The car revealed today 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, UK, uses traditional British materials and craftsmanship. Speedback promises exceptional performance and handling from the latest Jaguar-sourced 5.0-liter supercharged engine. Customers of David Brown 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, 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", said David Brown.

The price will be announced at the Top Marques Show in Monaco next month.
