Back in March 2014, the David Brown Automotive Speedback GT made its official debut in the European market, featuring classic styling with modern mechanics and comforts. Now, the company is celebrating the 1 year anniversary of the GT with the announcement that it will cross the pond and launch in the U.S. with a price tag around $753,000 (based on current exchange rates).

The Speedback GT will make its first appearance at the Quail Rally Welcome Reception in August at the Quail Lodge in California, and will also participate in the Rally on August 11-12. "The Quail is the ideal venue to exhibit Speedback GT, with its luxurious, elegant, classic setting that encapsulate the car's virtues and is full of true car enthusiasts," said founder and CEO David Brown, in a statement.

The David Brown Automotive Speedback GT gets power from a 5.0-liter V-8 supercharged engine that delivers 510 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque, offering up a 0-60 mph time of just 4.6 seconds. The top speed comes in at 155 mph.

After much success in Europe in terms of both sales and media reception, the Speedback GT enters the U.S. market. Hand-built in Coventry, the car features traditional British materials and craftsmanship, with every model made to order. Special touches include hand-formed panels and a hand-crafted interior, along with fold-down picnic seats and other special features.
