The company has released images of its upcoming car"s details, with the latest picture showing the outline of the classic 1950s layout of Silverstone circuit on the seat"s headrests. DBA said the car"s design will “capture David Brown’s vision of a high-performance classic grand tourer”, suggesting its look will be more focused on illustrating its performance, with retro motorsport and aeronautical influences.

The Silverstone Edition is based on the Speedback GT and will be hand made at the company’s Silvertstone headquarters using traditional construction techniques. Only ten will be produced.
