David Brown Automotive is a new car manufacturing company, founded by engineering entrepreneur and car enthusiast David Brown. He has no connection to the David Brown whose initials are so closely associated with Aston Martin, although both came from similar types of business background. The company plans to build a limited number of a handbuilt GT car to be called the Speedback GT, which is generally acknowledged to have a strong resemblance to the the iconic DB5, thereby emphasising the unusual coincidence between this David Brown and his namesake and their cars. The Speedback GT will be handcrafted to order by the specialist Envisage Group in Coventry, using a Jaguar XJR supplied rolling chassis and powerplant. Early in 2017, the company announced their second model, the Mini Remastered, a highly individual take on the classic Mini.
