Minerva J.M. Brabazon

The past is trying to wake up and come to life. This time we will tell you about a carmaker from Belgium that has started its experience at the beginning of the 20th century. The model that will be mentioned now is called J.M. Brabazon and it is actually the first vehicle to bear the Minerva badge since 1956, because Minerva is the carmaker we will tell you about. In case you do not know it, the brand has been making luxury cars until 1938.


Before the war, the company has struggled to survive by producing Land Rovers, but in the end it went bust. The name of the model mentioned above was given after a British duke which was also a racing driver who raced Minerva cars in the past. Different sources indicate that the model will come with a V12 engine which will receive extra power from electric motors which send power to the front wheels. This will actually enable the car to reach a top speed of 400 km/h. Just for comparison, we can say it remind us of the Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren P1. By looking at the photo gallery below, you can see that it has more common elements with a McLaren model. Also, we can also see that there are parts that remind us of the Audi brand and when we say part, we actually refer to the full-LED headlights.


Unfortunately there are no more other details on the matter as the model in the photos is only a rendering, it is nothing for sure. On paper all sounds great, but carbon fiber needs to be molded and also the engineers need to press the metal and burn the gasoline to be able to convince the potential customers and fans that they are really making an effort. We do have to admit that if this model will be sent to production, the price will be very high and not a lot of people will afford it.
