Coachbuilt for the 21st century

Speedback GT is the culmination of a lifelong dream and the realisation that, in order to achieve classic status, one must draw from the past and then embrace the future. Speedback GT is a fully engineered, proven and coachbuilt Grand Tourer, taking inspiration from icons of the Sixties. Speedback GT takes over 8,000 hours to meticulously handbuild by artisan craftsmen and skilled technicians in Great Britain.

PERFORMANCE

A true Grand Tourer providing driving thrills on demand

Push Speedback GT’s ignition button and its beating heart bursts to life, first with a raspy growl, then settling down into the low rhythmic rumble, characteristic of its supercharged V8 configuration.

The refined five-litre unit provides the perfect balance between horsepower and torque. As a continental cruiser, Speedback GT’s powertrain effortlessly dispatches the miles, whilst its responsive nature provides ample power when pressing on with conviction.

Speedback GT’s 5 litre twin-scroll supercharged V8 engine delivers 510 bhp and 0-60mph sprint in an enviable 4.6 seconds going on to a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). A maximum torque of 461 lb.ft. (625 Nm) provides discretionary performance and ample cruising ability.

 the Speedback Silverstone Edition gets you a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 with 601 horsepower, whereas the Speedback GT only comes with 510 hp. With drive going to the rear wheels via a 6-speed automatic, the Speedback Silverstone Edition will rocket to 60 mph in only 4.2 seconds and easily reach its governed top speed of 155 mph.
The car’s chassis was also enhanced to suit the higher output of its engine. DBA says it upgraded the suspension, 

Successful British businessman and car enthusiast, David Brown, has created a brand in his own name — David Brown Automotive — to deliver his vision for a new take on the British sports car. David has sought out key industry talent to create the new car. An experienced design team is led by Alan Mobberley, who was Chief Designer at Land Rover for 19 years, until 2005, while automotive engineering experts, Envisage Group, have developed the car, for production. David has not settled for an update of any existing model. He has commissioned a completely original exterior and interior design, sourced bespoke British suppliers for interior trim and materials and the car has been thoroughly engineered for low-volume production, combining the latest manufacturing techniques with traditional craftsmanship. David explained: “I wanted all the impact and style of a classic sports car, but with modern capabilities and conveniences. This is what I want in a car, but it’s not something anyone really offers. So, I’ve created it myself.” Underneath its bespoke exterior design, is the acclaimed chassis and powertrain of the Jaguar XKR, optimised specifically for the car by Envisage group engineers. This means the car will boast a thoroughly modern 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 engine, driving the rear wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission. Performance will be suitably brisk, yet refined, delivering 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds and a top speed exceeding 155mph (248 km/h). “As reliability is vital, we chose to adopt a thoroughly proven and acclaimed chassis that not only delivers dynamic performance but also lends itself to our lightweight aluminium design. Renown for its performance and handling, the XKR has been extensively developed and refined by one of the world’s greatest car manufacturers, making it an obvious choice on which to base our car” said David. These state-of-the-art underpinnings are matched to a completely original exterior and interior design, realised through the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. David explained: “I wanted all the impact and style of a classic sports car, but with modern capabilities and conveniences. This is what I want in a car, but it’s not something anyone really offers. So, I’ve created it myself.” “It has been developed using a combination of both traditional and contemporary technology, including the latest in automotive expertise. It has undergone a thorough analysis and development programme, including highly advanced wind tunnel and dynamic simulations.” http://www.davidbrownautomotive.com
