David Brown confirms the Speedback GT Silverstone Edition for Geneva


New teaser of the model.

David Brown Automotive has confirmed that the model we will present in the next edition of the Geneva motor show 2018 is a new version of its current Grand tourer, the Speedback GT. After a first, enigmatic teaser, presented just a few days ago, the little that we knew is that would be a model of athletic cut, but the brand did not detail the nature of the presentation. Now, as we thought it might be, we know that it will be a new version more sports of this.

Under the name Speedback GT Silverstone Edition, the brand intends to launch a more aggressive version of his well-known model of classic lines. For now we still have no images of the model, which will be presented next march 6.

Among the few data that have been confirmed to find that you will have mechanics of 608 HP (600 hp), which we assume will be an evolution of the same block V8 5.0-liter that employs the model that is already known. What they assume close to 100 horses more than the standard version, delivering 517 HP (510 hp).


First teaser of the model.

In terms of their aesthetics, the brand has confirmed in the same press release that this new version will have a specific image more sporty and aggressive, so we can expect a front with new air intakes and lines most warlike, as well as side skirts and new rims on the side.

Another of the data developed is production, because that will be manufactured in a strictly limited series of only 10 units, which we understand will have a price significantly greater than its sports current.

With this version it will be 3 models available in the catalogue of David Brown Automotive, accompanying the already known Speedback GT and Mini Remastered, the service of restoration of the classic Mini that except for the chassis and its numbering, you change all the elements, including the body.
