David Brown Automotive announces specifications of its first car 'Project Judi'

All-new David Brown Automotive has announced the outline specifications of its first car. Underneath its bespoke exterior design, is the acclaimed chassis and powertrain of the Jaguar XKR, optimised specifically for the car by Envisage group engineers. 
This means the car will
boast a thoroughly modern 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 engine, driving the rear wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission. Performance will be suitably brisk, yet refined, delivering 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds and a top speed exceeding 155mph (248 km/h).

"As reliability is vital, we chose to adopt a thoroughly proven and acclaimed chassis that not only delivers dynamic performance but also lends itself to our light-weight aluminium design. Renown 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," said David.

These state-of-the-art underpinnings are matched to a completely original exterior and interior design, realised through the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.

"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," added David.

"It has been developed using a combination of both traditional and contemporary technology, including the latest in automotive expertise. It has undergone a thorough analysis and development programme, including highly advanced wind tunnel and dynamic simulations."

'Project Judi' will be revealed to the public at the Top Marques Show in Monaco on April 17, 2014.
