The Brabham name has Le Mans history.
Brabham, a name long associated with racing, has just revealed its new supercar, the BT62. And from the looks of it, it's pretty typical modern supercar design. There are all manner of cavities from scoops to vents, channels to grilles. It's a very swoopy, curvy design that almost looks like a Lamborghini from a world where the company focused on curves instead of angles. Inside looks very purposeful but well crafted. Everything is in carbon fiber, and the seats are incredibly close together. Ah
After nearly three decades away from motorsports, Brabham is back from the dead. David Brabham, son of company founder Jack Brabham, announced in February that he has plans to return to Formula 1. In addition to a new F1 car, the company will be building a new roadcar. Two weeks ahead of its debut, we get some of the big specs and a single teaser image of the Brabham BT62.
It should be revealed in May.
Matthew Brabham is bringing the family name made famous by his late grandfather, three-time world champion Sir Jack, back to the forefront of racing at the Indianapolis 500.
A lot has happened since Sir Jack Brabham went down in history as the the only driver ever to win the Formula One World Championship in his own car. His offspring have followed in his footsteps, with two of his sons (Geoff in 1993 and David in 2009) having won at Le Mans with Peugeot. <
A recent report wonders aloud whether the Brabham name is close to a return to Formula One, with family scion David telling a Brazilian outlet "yes, there is the possibility to bring the team back (to F1)." However, the short answer to "Is the Brabham name coming back to Formula One?" is likely "No," and the long answer is likely, "Not for a while."
