The lightweight £1 million hypercar has been developed as an unrestricted track machine, powered by a 5.4-litre naturally aspirated V8 quad-cam engine that produces 492lb ft – giving the 972kg vehicle a power-to-weight ratio of 720bhp per tonne.
But the Australian-based firm says it will offer a Road Compliance Conversion option to buyers in the European market. Costing £150,000, the work will be undertaken by Brabham Automotive ahead of the car’s registration.
The conversion will include spec changes to make the vehicle more usable on the road, with a front and rear axle lift kit to raise the ride height, increased steering lock range, the addition of air conditioning, door locks and immobilisers, and additional interior upholstery.
Cars that undergo the conversion will be put through the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency’s Individual Vehicle Approval (IVA) test.
The changes will result in a slight increase in the car’s base weight, which the firm says won’t affect the 700bhp power output.
Company boss David Brabham said: “This isn’t a car designed for the road. With that said, it’s clear some customers are keen to have a road-compliant option with their BT62, particularly to drive to and from the track.”
The left-hand-drive-only BT62 will be sold in a limited run of 70 models. First deliveries of the model are due this year, and cars fitted with the conversion option will arrive in the summer.
