New Supercharged Brooke Double R gets 580bhp per tonne
9 January 2008

This is the new 300bhp, supercharged Brooke Double R. Power comes from a 2.0-litre Ford Duratec engine that has been custom made by Noble Motorsport – the same people who created the engine for the Noble M12.With a kerb weight of only 550kg and 580bhp per tonne, Brooke claim the car will hit 60mph in under 3sec and carry on to a very wind swept 165mph. The non-supercharged 260bhp Brooke Double R came a close second to the Ariel Atom in our 2007 0-100-0 test, with a time of 3.33sec to 60mph and 7.68sec to 100mph and an overall time of 12.15sec. The Atom 300 managed 11.35sec overall, so we'll have to wait until this year's 0-100-0 test to find out if the latest Double R can take the Atom 300's title. Until then you can see the car at the Autosport and Pistonheads show this weekend at the NEC in Birmingham, and keep watching for our first drive of Brooke's latest, and craziest creation. Or if you fancy doing 165mph in a car with no windscreen, you could always buy one for £39,995.
