The revived Brabham brand teases its new supercar just by letting people listen

Instead of teasing its new road car, like most manufacturers would, Brabham is letting folks listen to it. That’s right, the revived Brabham teased its latest -- dubbed BT62 -- by releasing a sound clip of the car’s exhaust. 

If you’re not familiar with Brabham, then you probably haven’t paid attention to Formula 1, or you're new to the sport. Founded in the early 1960s by Jack Brabham and Ron Taurnac, Brabham had a lot of success during the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s. It started to fall apart after Bernie Ecclestone -- yes, that Bernie -- sold the team in 1988. The most notable accomplishment for Brabham, besides being one of the biggest car suppliers in the 1960s, was its “fan car,” developed by noted F1 car designer Gordon Murray.  

Keeping the F1 spirit alive, Brabham chose to name its road car in the same way it’s been naming its racing cars since the company’s inception. Aside from its name, and now its exhaust note, we don’t know much else about the car. We’ll know more after Brabham reveals the car on May 2. Until then, tune in above.
