David Brown Automotive (DBA) has presented its third project, which it hopes to meet expectations, such as the previous two models of the Speedback GT and the Mini Remastered.
The company explains that it is a “performance classic Grand Tourer model in the company’s vision”. The new model is presented to the public at the Geneva Motor Show, and will be hand-made in a new company representation in Silverstone, in a limited edition.
David Brown, executive director of the company, said that he was looking forward to this project for a long time. He added that the car will have outstanding performance and hopes to bring other exciting opportunities for the company.
This small company was founded in 2013 in Coventry, and last year it moved to Silverstone, and is known for creating classic-looking vehicles equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Their latest project was the construction of the classic Mini model, which has an aggregate that produces between 90 and 100 horsepower that is connected to a four-speed manual transmission, and which has improved brakes and suspension. Each car received LED lights, a hand-made seat seal and an infotainment system that supports smartphones, central locking, start button and USB ports.
The Speedback Silverstone Edition, however, is even more exciting. It looks like the Aston Martin DB5, and it owns the Jaguar XKR’s chassis and powertrain. The aggregate produces 601hp and 766 Nm (six-speed ZF automatic), and it takes only 4.2 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour (96 km / h) and achieves a maximum speed of 250 km / h. It also has an infotainment system, Bowers & Wilkins premium surround sound audio system and modern technology.
Speedback Silverstone Edition will be made in a limited edition of only 10 copies, and prices start at 620,000 pounds.
