David Brown Automotive's Retro Coachbuild Brilliance

Video

It really doesn't get more British than this.

Late last month, David Brown Automotive revealed its new Speedback, a beautiful coachbuild creation that’s underpinned by a Jaguar XKR. The exterior, however, takes its cues from classic Aston Martins along with a hint here and there of Ferrari and Maserati. But without question, this coupe is pure British, inside and out. Just look at its interior. Those wire rim wheels. That Jaguar-built 5.0-liter V8 with 510 horsepower and 461 lb-ft of torque. It all just goes together so incredibly well.

And now the crew over at XCAR has scored a behind the scenes look at DBA’s debut car in the final production stage. As its creator and namesake states, this is something you could drive to the south of France without fearing it’ll suddenly break down.
