BROADSPEED GT

fos2009-0224-20090704-img_4807.jpg

This very rare example is one of only 21 originally built by Broadspeed in 1965 and has been fully restored just in time to show at Goodwood

Possibly the most beautiful Mini derivative car of all the Broadspeed GT was the brainchild of Mr Ralph Broad of the Broadspeed Engineering in Birmingham Broadspeed were one of the most successful Mini racing teams of the early 1960s 
decoding to capitalise on this they developed the Broadspeed GT a half steel half fibreglass fast back Mini although it was initially envisaged as a luxury road going vehicle it became well known as a GT racer 
a Broadspeed was timed doing 145mph and was reputed to have overtaken an AC Cobra on the straight in one event

Broadspeed suffered a major fallout with B M C in 1966 leading them to racing Ford Anglias
