Don’t remember the old-school legendary Brabham Racing? Here is a short history of them. The British racing car manufacturer was founded by two Australians in 1960, Jack Brabham, driver, and Ron Tauranac as a designer. In 1960s, Brabham was the world’s largest manufacturer of open wheel racing cars and it won several championships in Formula One, Two and Three. 

In 1992, the company went through a tough financial crisis and were unable to pay their lenders. But now, Brabham is back and their focus seem to be on becoming a BMW tuner. In a press release, the company announced three models:

 

  1. Brabham BT 92 – based on an M3 Coupe
  2. Brabham BT 60 - a tuned up M5
  3. Brabham BT 70 - a sporty interpretation of the X6
Will they make it? Do we need another BMW tuner? Not sure at this point, but I look forward to the Essen Motor Show where the cars will be unveiled. In the mean time, here is a teaser image of the BT 92.
