England is known for its luxury sports cars. From Aston Martin to Jaguar, Britain has created some of the most iconic luxury sports cars of all time. Now, the world will witness the birth of a brand new british luxury sports car!
An all-new British company hopes to cause a stir with its first model, named“Project Judi,” which is set to make its international debut in Monaco in April.
David Brown Automotive wants to be a real alternative to existing luxury British sports cars and has, for that matter, recruted some big hitters like Land Rover’s former head of design, Alan Mobberley, as well as a host of automotive craftsmen and bespoke suppliers, to realize its goal.
“I wanted all the impact and style of a classic sports car, but with modern capabilities and conveniences. This is what I want in a car, but it’s not something anyone really offers. So, I’ve created it myself.” said David Brown.
However, the company isn’t starting from scratch. David Brown is using a proven platform for its first car — the Jaguar XKR — and adding to and improving it. So the signs look promising.
It means that the car is capable of 0-62mph (100kph) in under five seconds and a wonderful 5-liter supercharged V8 engine.
“As reliability is vital, we chose to adopt a thoroughly proven chassis that not only delivers dynamic performance but also lends itself to our lightweight aluminium design. Renowned for its performance and handling, the XKR has been extensively developed and refined by one of the world’s greatest car manufacturers, making it an obvious choice on which to base our car.”
The new luxury british sports car will be presented to the world at the Top Marques Show in Monaco on April 17, 2014.
