Coventry, England (20th April 2016): Great British manufacturer, David Brown Automotive, is delighted to announce that it will display its luxury sports car model, Speedback GT at The London Motor Show from the 5th to 8th May, 2016.

Marking two years since the launch of the marque’s prototype, visitors to the inaugural London Motor Show will have the opportunity to view a production-standard example, which has evolved significantly through 237 design and engineering improvements since its launch in April 2014.

Speedback GT is designed and manufactured in Britain, it has the looks of a classic grand tourer combined with a modern engineering platform. Boasting the very latest in drivetrain technology, the car is built using modern engineering techniques, while retaining high levels of handcraftmanship. Each vehicle is built by skilled coachbuilders and takes over 3,200 man hours to create. Combined with its sleek, sporty and elegant Sixties-inspired looks, the Speedback GT is sure to catch the eye and imagination of thousands of visitors to the show.

“It’s great to be back in London and even better to be exhibiting at The London Motor Show,” says company founder David Brown. “As a car-maker based in Britain, it’s wonderful to display a car here in the capital. We look forward to meeting visitors at our stand and showing them the car. There’s so much to do and see at the event and we’re proud to be a part of it.”
