Dan Marks stated that they are not willing to go McLaren way of producing 1,000 vehicles per year as they don’t want to lose focus. For them vehicles between 100 and 200 units each year is perfect.

He further indicated that the car is way-off for now as Brabham is on journey towards 2022.

It is reported that it will have same market to that of McLaren 720S, Ferrari F8 Tributo, and the forthcoming Aston Martin Vanquish. However, Brabham’s road-legal car is going to be more track biased than any of their mid-engine rivals.

The race car is underpinned by same BT62 chassis but has been tweaked to comply with racing series.
