The new car will be powered by a 700 horsepower, naturally-aspirated 5.4-liter V8. The car will have a dry weight of just 2,142 pounds and put down 2,646 pounds of downforce thanks in part to a massive rear wing. Weight savings comes in the form of carbon, including six-piston brakes both front and rear. Other details remain a mystery for now.
The Brabham BT62 will be limited to just 70 units. Even with a base price of $1.4 million, we don't expect it to take too long to sell out. We just hope that this helps fund future development of both road and race cars, similar to McLaren's current lineup.
