A British Brand Is Born

A British Brand Is Born

The name David Brown has formerly been associated with Aston Martin and their ‘DB’ models; however it is now scheduled to take on a new significance in the motor industry.  David Brown Automotive (no connection to Aston Martin) is building a new classic British sports car with a modern twist. David Brown, the company founder is a car enthusiast and successful entrepreneur with a vision for an innovative sports car. David believes the car he wants does not exist; hence he is creating it himself. David has a strong team around him, including Alan Mobberley who worked for 19 years as Chief Designer at Land Rover and the Envisage Group in Coventry to take on the engineering challenge. This new sports car is proposed to be a bespoke design using top British suppliers. The sports car will be engineered for low production levels, by using traditional skills and modern manufacturing procedures. Thus far, there has been no mention of the engine or chassis, therefore this could be an update of an existing model. The David Brown brand is due to launch in April and although very few details have been released, it’s already given a powerful impression.
