All New Classic British Sports Car to Launch in 2014

David Brown AutomotiveThe last time the name David Brown was seen on a car it led to the iconic DB initials still used today by the company he bought, Aston Martin! Well today we hear that an all-new British sports car is soon to roll out of the shadows taking on the name of its successful British businessman owner. His name; David Brown.

David Brown Automotive is set to put itself forward as Britain’s newest luxury automotive brand, being launched in April 2014 and promising to refresh the classic British sports car, for the 21st Century.

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 Brown AutomotiveDavid 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.”

The result – codenamed “Project Judi” – will be revealed in April 2014 and will be made available for sale, in strictly limited numbers. It will combine a classically-inspired exterior design, with the latest in performance, dynamics, technology, comfort and refinement.

“I thought that if I’m looking for this, others might be too,” commented David.

More details on the new car, including its name, will be announced closer to the car’s launch date. In the meantime, anyone can register their interest to receive more information at:
