After some fits and starts, the Brabham name is back in business as a race car manufacturer with the debut of the awesome little BT62. The track-focused BT62 features a phenomenal power to weight ratio and builds on the legacy of a name that dominated Formula racing for decades.

The Brabham BT62 weighs in at a mere 972 kilograms (2,143 lb) dry and has a huge 5.4-liter V8 that outputs 700 bhp (522 kW) and 667 Nm (492 lb-ft) of torque. That gives the BT62 a power to weight ratio of 720 bhp per tonne. The car also boasts 1,200 kg (2,645 pounds) of downforce from its bodywork aerodynamics.

A limited production run of the Brabham BT62 will consist of just 70 cars in all, commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Brabham name in racing. The first half of those cars will be liveried in tribute to the company’s 35 Formula 1 Grand Prix victories.
