These fancy classic-styled car made in limited numbers

In order to maintain their product privileges, some automotive manufacturers have decided to sell their vehicles in a limited manner. The same thing was also done by the famous British premium automotive manufacturer, David Brown Automotive.

Inspired by grand touringers and racing cars in the late 1960s, which later made the company assemble their newest car that were touted as the pure Grand Tourers for the 21st century and produced in limited numbers ie 10 units only.

As reported by the Motor1, the Speedback Silverstone Edition (that's their car's name) has been exhibited at the 2018 Geneva Auto Show. The car was built in the feel of a 1960s car, but make no mistake, under the hood there's lies a modern twin-scroll supercharged V8 engine with a capacity of 5.0 liters.

"Since the David Brown Automotive moved to Silverstone, we want to mark the importance of the legacy of these aeronautical and motorsport circuit," said the founder of the company, David Brown. "This Speedback special edition discusses about our ambitions at every level, as a Grand Tourer that is visually stunning with reliable performance," he added later.

David Brown Automotive has remained loyal to the classical rear wheel drive idea by marrying a V8 engine with a ZF's 6-speed automatic gearbox, which then sends all the engine power exclusively to the rear wheels. Therefore, the 601 horsepower-powered car and 766 Nm of torque can achieve an acceleration time record from rest to 96 km/h in 4.2 seconds.

As for the suspension of the car, it uses an automatic Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system and a good active rear differential. There is no-special touch presented by David Brown Automotive for the car cabin, where the atmosphere of the 60s vehicle feels very thick by using brown and black-colored leather that covers the car's seat and dashboard.
There is no second row of seats on this car, because this area is used as a luggage storage area. All infotainment systems are on the center console that is fully integrated with advanced features such as satellite navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, and 7.1-channel Bowers & Wilkins premium audio surround sound system.

Just for info, these DB Speedback Silverstone Edition will be built by an order, both consumers who want the left or right steering configuration. For the price is sets start from £620,000 or around Rp.11.8 billion. Are you interested to have one? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTOR1]
