I met David Brown for the first time almost exactly one year ago when he came on the Ecurie Ecosse Tour with his friend Philip Noble in Noble’s Ferrari 275GTB C. We got to talking in the bar one night and when I asked him what he did, he smiled and said he was in business creating a new British quality GT car.
The Speedback GT Brown spoke of had been shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 2016 and is now in production. For me it was a rare chance to sit down with someone who has not just produced a one-off car design, but has gone into full scale production.
David Brown is a charming, garrulous, Yorkshireman born in Harrogate who, like most Yorkshiremen, never takes no for an answer and is up front with his views about life, work and cars.
