Earlier this year, Brabham Automotive announced that they will be returing to the field of manufacturing. At the time, they did not mention whether they will be producing an open-wheel racer or a road-going vehicle. Now however, the British-marque has released a teaser photo of their upcoming project. Called BT26, the road-going supercar will be the brand's first ever vehicle produced in 26 years.
For now we only get to see a rear shot of the BT26, showing off it's large rear wing illuminated by T-shaped LED taillights. A closer look does suggest that the supercar will have a a large rear diffuser to improve aerodynamics. Based on the lone teaser photo however, we can expect the BT26 to have a wild and aggressive styling. Furthermore, the company claims it will produce 'over 1,200kg of downforce'.
Being that Brabham Automotive has Formula 1 heritage, the BT26 will also be track oriented. The company says it will only weigh 972 kg and is powered by a 5.4-liter V8. Though exact power figures were not disclosed, they mentioned that the upcoming supercar will have a power-to-weight ratio of 730ps per ton. To help stop the vehicle, it will use carbon-carbon brakes similar to that of Formula One cars, and sport six-piston calipers.
Apart from the lone teaser photo and some technical info, Brabham revealed that only 70 units of the BT26 will be built. Each will come with a hefty price tag of one million pounds.
The Brabham Automotive BT26 will be revealed on May 2. Expect full details regarding the car then.
