The First Brabham BT62 Competition Has Landed



The lighter Competition-spec BT62 uses a six-speed sequential gearbox and innovative aerodynamics helps the hypercar achieve 2,646 pounds of downforce. To further save weight, exposed carbon has been applied in the cabin, replacing the regular car’s trim, and it is delivered without a passenger seat or a spares pack – these are available as options, though. What remains is the carbon-chromoly safety cell and the roll cage. The carbon-on-carbon brakes are said to provide unmatched stopping power.

Although it can’t be described as pretty, few track racers that are this focused are. Rather, form follows function when it comes to this hand-built beast with its giant rear wing and array of gaping scoops and intakes. The lightweight wheels – painted here in gold – are wrapped in Goodyear slick racing tires. Inside the cabin, the telematic control carbon fiber steering wheel looks like it comes out of an old-school gaming arcade.
