Brabham BT62 Clears Its Throat In Preview Clip

Brabham will call its new car BT62 launches 2 May

Last month, racing driver David Brabham, son of successful racer Jack Brabham, announced that he had some big plans for his family name, including returning it to an F1 team and starting a road vehicle company.

To the delight of enthusiasts, the fledgling vehicle maker created by late Australian racer Sir Jack Brabham's son, David, sounds like it could be packing a powerful V8.

Previous speculation linked the new Brabham Automotive brand with the Force India F1 Team, which, it was believed, could be taken over amid an ongoing legal case for its owner, Indian business tycoon Vijay Mallya. The BT46B "fan car" was a legendary racer that upset the status quo, using Gordon Murray's ingenious design talents, and the BT52 was the first turbocharged auto to win an F1 world title.

Brabham Automotive has confirmed it will unveil its first new model called the BT62 this May and to prove it, it has released a short vid of it idling during testing.

Apple Maps now includes bike sharing data for more than 175 cities
As TechCrunch notes Apple Maps doesn't show bike availability or empty spots for now, but hopefully that will come soon. Life just got easier for commuters and adventurers who like having bikes available without needing to own one.

Brabham insists that its vehicle is more than a vanity exercise - the manufacturer says that its new BT62 has already been through an extensive engineering programme and is close to the end of an intensive testing process shortly before its global reveal, which takes place on Wednesday 2 May.

Rumor has it that the BT62 will be a road-going track auto as opposed to a pure racing machine.

"My father had an incredible determination to succeed and, like him, I have worked tirelessly to bring the iconic Brabham name back to the global stage". This new chapter of the Brabham story will continue in the same spirit, but with renewed direction, focus and vigour.
