The UK’s David Brown Automotive is set to launch its second-ever model, known only at this stage at ‘Project 2’.
The carmaker raised eyebrows with its stylish first model in 2014 – the Speedback GT (pictured, below) – and fans can expect more of the same with the Project 2.
Approaching the three-year anniversary of the Speedback’s launch, DBA says Project 2 is an all-new, best-of-British, handcrafted model described as “the original remastered”.
While the exterior design might be decidedly retro, the interior tech is promised to be very much set in 2017. Details, however, are scarce.
Also unknown is the shape of the exterior, but DBA says a new range of paint finishes will be offered.
“We’ve been working on Project 2 for over a year, it’s an idea that I had right at the start of Speedback GT’s story and sits beautifully alongside it,” company founder, David Brown, said.
“Using our core mantra of classic styling, beautiful craftsmanship and modern technology, Project 2 is a fusion of the brand’s values, with quintessential British design and craftsmanship at the heart. We’ve had a lot of fun with the new car and I can’t wait to reveal it in full.”
The David Brown (not to be confused with David Brown of Aston Martin fame) Project 2 is set to be launched overseas in the second quarter of this year, as DBA moves into its new headquarters in Silverstone. First deliveries for UK customers are scheduled for September.
Like the Speedback GT, we aren’t expecting to see the new model in Australia in an official capacity.
