New luxury British sports car brand to be launched in April

An all-new British sports car brand, David Brown Automotive, will launch its debut model in April, promising to refresh the classic British sports car, for the 21st Century.

This all-new company is founded by British businessman and car enthusiast, David Brown, with a goal to deliver his vision for a new take on the British sports car.

David Brown might sound familiar to automotive fans and many of you might be automatically thinking about Sir David Brown, a one time owner of automobile manufacturer Aston Martin. Sir David Brown passed away back in 1993 and has nothing to do with the new company.

Just another David Brown, who was in the business of manufacturing earth-moving equipment that was later successfully sold to Caterpillar.

David has put together a team of experts to go after his dream. The design team is led by Alan Mobberley, former Chief Designer at Land Rover.

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.”

Their first model is codenamed “Project Judi” and it has been thoroughly engineered for low-volume production and will “combine a classically-inspired exterior design, with the latest in performance, dynamics, technology, comfort and refinement”.
