Limited-run retro GT from David Brown features jet-inspired details and fold-out boot-mounted picnic bench.

David Brown Automotive has unveiled the latest example of its 10 highly exclusive Speedback Silverstone Editions.

Destined for an owner in Asia, this Speedback Silverstone – one of just 10 originally confirmed for production in 2018 – has taken more than 8000 hours to produce. The exterior of the car has been hand-painted in a unique shade of ‘Black Metallic’ – a process that takes more than eight weeks to complete – and decorated with contrasting hand-brushed milled aluminium details.

The car also features monochrome badges produced by “artisan jewellers” from Birmingham’s jewellery quarter, while bespoke 20-inch ‘Afterburner’ wheels add some aggression to the look.

Inside, the heated and cooled leather seats are finished in a light ‘Oyster’ colour and the dashboard and door cards feature open-pore wood elements. The exposed metalwork and jet-inspired air vents are coated in brushed chrome.

The owner has also specified a picnic seat in the boot. This small bench-style chair folds out from the boot floor, creating a small seating area. The owner has commissioned a picnic set to go with it, including a bespoke wool blanket, leather whisky bottle holder and leather-trimmed flasks.
