David Brown Automotive unveiled its Speedback Silverstone Edition at the Geneva Motor Show last week. Taking inspiration from the dawn of the jet age and classic racers from the 1960s, the Speedback Silverstone Edition is a pure performance Grand Tourer for today.
Limited to a run of only 10 production cars, the Speedback Silverstone Edition is an example of bespoke British handcraftsmanship. Each model will be made using traditional coachbuilding techniques at David Brown Automotive’s headquarters and build facility at the Silverstone circuit. Celebrating one year since David Brown Automotive moved to its Silverstone base, the new model is honed for performance, drawing close links to the aeronautical and racing heritage of the celebrated circuit.
Delivering 601 bhp, a 0-60mph time of 4.2 seconds and a limited top speed of 155mph, the 5.0-litre twin-scroll supercharged V8 engine fitted to the new model makes for the most performance orientated car ever produced by David Brown Automotive. The impressive powertrain is mated to a six-speed ZF automatic transmission and drive is delivered through the car’s rear wheels.
