Default Brabham BT92

Quote:
When we saw the preview with the new Brabham BT92 we were drooling and we couldn’t stop thinking of it. Well, the inevitable happened and the new vehicle was unveiled at this year’s Essen Motor Show. The new vehicle comes with widened body kit consisting in a redesigned front bumper, new side sills, widened fenders, a carbon fiber top, a new trunk with integrated spoiler and a redesigned rear spoiler with integrated carbon fiber air diffuser and central exhaust system. This stylish kit is completed by the new alloy wheels featuring the same high-quality carbon fiber. No words about the price yet

Default Sir Jack Brabham Considers Legal Action Against German Tuning Firm Using His Name

Quote:
Following reports of the famous Brabham name coming back on the scene, the man who made it famous is saying it is being used without his knowledge or consent. Sir Jack Brabham who is now 82 years old and suffers from kidney failure, says Brabham Racing is selling cars and other products under his name although they have nothing to do with him or his family. He believes they are trying to cash in on his successes.

Despite legally registering the Brabham Racing name in Germany, the tuning company had released materials falsely implying a Brabham connection with headlines such as, "Return of a Legend" and "After numerous successes in Formula One and being dormant for nearly sixteen years, the legendary motor racing brand was relaunched."

"It is very disappointing, in 65 years of racing no one has ever done this to me before," Brabham told AAP. "They are using my name without my knowledge to promote and sell their products."

He is considering legal action against the company. German tuning company Brabham Racing is exhibiting a modified BMW M3, among others, at the Essen Motor Show. Its spokesman Michael Trick says the issue is "with the lawyers".

The Brabham Formula One team won four drivers' championships and two constructors' championships. Brabham remains to this day the only championship winning name borne by both driver and winning car. Interestingly the legal name of Brabham's former team is Motor Racing Developments Ltd.

I hope those "turbines" on the wheels help with brake cooling.

I was thinking they just bought the rights to the name, like the whole Von Dutch scheme, but I guess they didn't even bother with the rights!

Is this really a German concern, or a front for some Russians? This is the sort of crap an entrepreneurialy challenged Eastern European would pull.

Not real sure about using the name, but the car looks great. And I agree, that is an amazing paint job. I wonder how many hours went into that.

Sucks if the name thing is true. Those CF pieces on the wheels are playing tricks on my eyes.
