Breaking News: Mystery Luxury Sports Car Announced for 2014

January 22, 2014

Aston Martin fans of the world will no doubt be pretty familiar with the name David Brown in connection with the iconic, ever-sexy DB range. But today there’s some inside intel that this year brings a new David Brown to the motoring universe – and he’s bringing a luxury British sports car with him. We won’t keep you in suspense – here’s what we know right now.

David Brown Automotive (DBA) is here to refresh and revolutionise the British sports car, with a team of experts and elites, including Alan Mobberley – a chief designer at Land Rover for no less than 19 years – and Coventry-based engineering group Envisage, with experience not only in the automotive sector, but also marine, defence and even aerospace. Exciting stuff.

The idea is not exactly to redefine the British sports car, but to take the classic formula and revive this concept for the 21st century. Equally, DBA’s all-new sports car will not be merely “an update of an existing model” but – by the sounds of it – bring the past and future together for an unbeatable, timeless combo. Details are few and far between at this stage – and we know nothing yet about the engine or chassis possessed by this motoring marvel, though we’re assured the model boasts a “completely original exterior and interior design” – but there’s no doubt hype is building for this year’s unveiling of the British sports car of the future.

Think a renaissance of the archetypal Bond cars but with a 2014 twist – with far advanced manufacturing techniques now available, combined with old-school craftsmanship, this could be a prime opportunity to improve upon perfection. And we’re not complaining.

As David Brown puts it:

‘I wanted all the impact and style of a classic sportscar, 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.
I thought that if I’m looking for this, others might be too.’

This new model, presently known only as ‘Project Judi’ is set to be unveiled this April – so, by the looks of it, the sports car revolution is just around the corner.
