£620,000 luxury car being built at Silverstone Park

12 March 2018

Niche vehicle manufacturer David Brown Automotive has unveiled its special edition £620,000 Speedback Silverstone car – being designed and built in its new headquarters at Silverstone Park.

Just ten versions of the high performance grand tourer – which broke cover at this month’s Geneva International Motor Show – will be produced.

The car follows on from production of the company’s Speedback GT and Mini Remastered models which is already under way in the company’s 18,000 sq ft premises (see our January 2018 Newsletter).

These are part of 125,000 sq ft of new industrial units constructed at Silverstone Park by estate developer MEPC. Just 35,000 sq ft remain available to let.

The development also has Enterprise Zone status which gives companies up to £50,000 a year in business rates relief.

Among the other companies to have taken advantage of the units so far is DS Virgin Racing, a leading team in the world’s premier electric car racing category, the FIA Formula E Championship
