David Brown Automotive: A British sports car for 2014

British businessman and car enthusiast David Brown will launch his own car company this year, with the aim of creating an all-new interpretation of the classic British sports car…

David Brown – who has no connection to the legendary Aston Martin MD with whom he shares a name – has sought out leading industry figures in the fields of design and engineering to help complete his goal. ‘Project Judi’, as it’s known for the time being, will have a completely new exterior and interior design, and will combine modern manufacturing techniques with traditional craftsmanship. Brown explains: “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.”

The classically styled car will be produced in limited numbers, and is promised to comprise the latest in performance, dynamics, technology, comfort and refinement. “I thought that if I’m looking for this, others might be too,” adds Brown.

The car will be revealed in its entirety in April 2014; Classic Driver will update you on the project’s progress soon.
