Company founder and CEO David Brown said: “I can speak on behalf of the whole team to say how delighted we all are to be opening a showroom in Germany and in turn expanding our European network. Germany has always been a key market for us since our launch - a country that we have had a lot of positive interest and sales from. The Classic Remise is a fantastic venue for car enthusiasts and Speedback GT will sit alongside some of the finest classic cars in the region. The showroom’s launch within Classic Remise has been a long time in the making, and it’s a positive step for David Brown Automotive and Speedback GT.”
