When we first saw the Brabham BT62, we were blown away. Formula 1 roots, an feather-light carbon fiber construction, and 700-horsepower, 5.4-liter V8 between the axles—everything about it screamed automotive perfection.

The catch was a $1.3 million price tag and the fact that the British hypercar could only legally be driven on a track. But now anyone who secured one of the 70 limited-edition performance vehicles can cough up an extra $200,000 to have the company make the BT62 totally street-legal.

A Brabham press release states that in addition to ensuring its up to snuff from a legal standpoint, specifications will be altered to make it more drivable.

This includes raising the ride height with a front and rear axle lift kit, increasing the steering lock range, adding air conditioning, fitting door locks and immobilizers, and high-quality upholstery in the interior.

"This isn’t a car designed for the road," said David Brabham, managing director and son of F1 legend Jack Brabham. "With that said, it’s clear some customers are keen to have a road compliant option with their BT62, particularly to drive to and from the track."

If an owner changes their mind, Brabham can also reverse the changes.

The first road-going BT62 will be delivered this summer.
