David’s inspiration for his business came following a classic car rally in the South of France, for which he had borrowed a Ferrari Daytona, arguably one of the most beautiful classic cars in existence. Unfortunately, after a couple of days enduring poor performance, overheating and no mod cons, the Daytona finally broke down, and David had to finish the trip in a rather less attractive, but eternally more reliable, European hatchback.

Why wasn’t it possible to marry true classic beauty with modern technology?

During the evening you will hear about David’s deeply-ingrained love of all things automotive, from early beginnings as his father’s first employee at DJB Engineering; a company which was formed in 1972 and designed, engineered, built, marketed and sold a revolutionary type of off-highway articulated earth-moving vehicle, and which was eventually sold to off-road giant, Caterpillar in the 90s. Right through to today – whereby his own FLEDbusiness vision has been realised in the form of the stunning Speedback GT and its anticipated second model, Mini Remastered.David Brown Automotive Members' Evening
