Brabham Automotive develops road legal BT62

0

Brabham Automotive has put together a new Road Compliance Conversion option for its BT62 track car, which will make the vehicle road legal. Built to be an unrestricted track car, the BT62 promises performance that surpasses that of a GT car.

The project aim was to make the car legal, safe and usable on the road with minimal compromise to its race-bred circuit dynamics. ­­For the European market, the road compliance process will take place in the UK and cost £150,000 [US$192,000] in addition to the vehicle list price.

“Customers have the flexibility of completing the Brabham Driver Development Program before converting their BT62 or requesting that their BT62 be delivered as a road compliant version,” noted Dan Marks, commercial director of Brabham Automotive.

In addition to the regulatory requirements, specification changes will also be made to make the vehicle more usable on the road. This includes raising the ride height with a front- and rear-axle lift kit, increasing the steering lock range, adding air-conditioning, fitting door locks and immobilizers, and including additional interior upholstery.

Commenting on the BT62 Road Compliance Conversion, David Brabham, managing director of Brabham Automotive, said: “We designed the BT62 to be a thoroughbred track car and our extensive test program has revealed it to be all of those things.”
